San Jose, Calif. Philips Lumileds has announced the availability of LUXEON Rebel power LEDs with a new packaging technology that significantly reduces the size of the LED and enables new approaches to solid-state lighting design.
The LUXEON Rebel LEDs are packaged in a 3 x 4.5-mm footprint, which is about 75% smaller than other surface-mount LEDs, said Philips. In addition, the low-profile of 2.1 mm enables designs to be as much as 50% slimmer than conventional power LEDs, according to the company.
The series is available in warm-white, neutral-white and cool-white with typical Correlated Color Temperatures (CCTs) of 3000K, 4100K and 6500K, respectively, in addition to standard InGaN and AlInGaP colors. The LUXEON Rebel white binning structure includes a CCT range from 2670K to 3500K for warm-white, 3500K to 4500K for neutral-white, and 4500K to 10000K for cool-white.
The LUXEON Rebel, with operation between 350 mA and 1000 mA, is the first power LED to offer guaranteed minimum performance, said the company. For applications requiring high efficacy, the cool-white LUXEON Rebel can exceed 70 lumens per watt at 350 mA. When total light output needs to be maximized, LUXEON Rebel delivers more than 160 lumens at higher drive currents.
Although small, LUXEON Rebel LEDs are said to be extremely robust. The ceramic-based package is designed to withstand high heat with a maximum junction temperature of 150°C and are said to be the first power LED for lighting to be rated for unlimited shelf life.
Availability: Sampling of the warm-white and neutral-white products begins immediately with volume production later this year. The LUXEON Rebel LEDs will be available from Future Electronics via its Future Lighting Solutions division.
