"The advancement of thin-film technology in OSRAM's high-volume, surface mount technology (SMT) Power TOPLED package portfolio enables lower profile, low-cost solutions to be realized with considerable improvement in light output at elevated temperatures," said Ellen Sizemore, director, LED Products Group, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. "We are delighted by our continued efforts and success in creating innovative and highly effective LED solutions."
OSRAM's Power TOPLED product portfolio now includes yellow, orange, red and super-red versions ranging between 606 and 633 nanometers (nm). Previous brightness-level versions are still available as well, rounding out the company's line of Power TOPLED products for a wide range of traditional and emerging lighting applications.
Improvements to thin-film technology enable all generated light to emit through the top of the chip, resulting in higher luminous efficacy and producing red and indium gallium aluminum phosphide (InGaAlP) LEDs that are bright enough for a wide range of applications. These high-brightness LEDs are ideal for rear light clusters and indicators on vehicles and for display panels for traffic control systems.
OSRAM will leverage its improved, innovative thin-film technology in its other LED product families as well, including the company's Advanced Power TOPLED(R), SIDELED(R), Golden DRAGON(TM) and miniaturized PointLED(R). Enhanced versions of these products will be available in the next calendar year.
