Product Announcement from Lumex
Lumex announces the extension of their TitanBrite line of high power LED technology with the introduction of new 2-watt, 3-watt and 5-watt LEDs. The surface mounted LEDs provide high intensity light of up to 58, 210 and 300 lumens respectively. Compared to similar high power LEDs, the new TitanBrite products can provide up to a 30% improvement in heat dissipation performance and a 60% enhancement in electrostatic discharge protection. The technologies feature unique packaging which allows for simplified integration and for additional savings in the area of product design.
Compatible with standard LED drivers, the new TitanBrite 2-watt, 3-watt and 5-watt LED technologies are ideal for a wide range of applications that require bright, intense light with low power consumption. Applications include: automotive, decorative, landscape, small space and emergency lighting as well as backlighting and incandescent lamp replacement.
"Like many suppliers today, Lumex offers a comprehensive line of high-power LED technologies," explained Kay Fernandez, High Power Technology Manager at Lumex. "What truly separates Lumex´s offering is not only the high quality products, but also the complimentary industry-leading technical support available to help design engineers integrate technology in the most efficient way for their unique application requirements."
The new TitanBrite LEDs provide superior heat dissipation performance and electrostatic discharge protection compared to similar high power LED products. Whereas a standard high-power LED provides thermal resistance of 10 °C/watt, the new TitanBrite products can provide thermal resistance as low as 7°C/watt. Traditional high power LED technology provides electrostatic discharge protection up to 5,000 volts compared to 8,000 volt protection provided by the new TitanBrite technology.
The new 2-watt, 3-watt and 5-watt high power LEDs also feature unique packaging that simplifies integration processes. Whereas traditional high-power LEDs require an additional heat sink or metal core PCB to control thermal dissipation, the unique packaging of the new TitanBrite products allows for the elimination of the metal core PCB and instead fuses to a lead frame to manage thermal output. This simplifies product design and reduces the number and cost of ancillary materials required to make the product perform.
TitanBrite high power LED technology comes with complimentary integration support. Lumex Technical Design Specialists can integrate TitanBrite LEDs with LCDs, light pipes, switches, connectors and other key components to create solutions that maximize performance and efficiency in each individual application.
The RoHs compliant TitanBrite 2-watt, 3-watt and 5-watt LEDs are available in a variety of colors. The 2-watt technology is available in yellow (591nm typ) and red (623nm typ). The 3-watt and 5-watt LEDs are offered in blue (465nm typ), warm white (2700K) and cool white (6000K) with red, green and yellow versions also available at no additional cost.
The compact size of the new high power TitanBrite LEDs enables important real estate savings in product design. The 2-watt TitanBrite LED is available in both a round 8mm package (SML-LXL8047XXX/2) as well as a square 9mm package (SML-LXL99XXX/2) . The 3-watt TitanBrite LED (SML-LXL8047XXX/3) is available in a round package with 8mm diameter. The 5-watt TitanBrite LED (SML-LXL99XXX/5) features a 9mm squared package with 7.70mm diameter. The square package of the 5-watt LED allows for increased design efficiency with easier assembly and array formation opportunities.
Lumex´s new TitanBrite high power LEDs are list priced from $4.96 to $8.86 for the 2-watt LED, $4.73 to $8.96 for the 3-watt LED and $10.83 to $19.88 for the 5-watt technology dependent on quantity ordered. Lead times range from six to eight weeks.
With the expansion of its TitanBrite line, Lumex now provides over 10 different high-power LED technologies including 1-watt, 2-watt, 3-watt and 5-watt sizes, through-hole and SMT offerings as well as standard and RGB formats.
