Lumileds
recently unveiled its LUXEON V2 LED, designed for high
power performance in streetlights, high-bay/low-bay fixtures, sports stadiums,
and portable applications. The company claims that the LED provides the highest
performance in its class for output and efficacy as well as DLC Premium performance at the
system level. The LUXEON V2 features a 2 × 2-mm chip-scale package (CSP) in a
3.5 × 3.5-mm standard (3535) package.

Jennifer
Holland, product line director at Lumileds, said that the LUXEON V2 is designed
so that “99% of the light is forward-directed, resulting in the industry’s most
usable light from a compact source.”

The
LUXEON V2 boasts that output and efficiency at 4,000K, 70 CRI is 315 lumens
(lm) at 160 lm/W when driven at 700 mA. In addition, the CSP die offers high
drive current capability up to 2.4 A across the operating range. At 1 A, the
LED provides 150 lm/W and more than 10% more flux when compared with similar 2-mm2
products.

The
LUXEON V2 also offers the lowest thermal resistance substrate at 2.6 C/W in the
industry, which simplifies the thermal design, according to the company. A Lambertian
radiation pattern profile makes it possible to leverage the current optics
ecosystem to accelerate time to market.

The LUXEON V2 is available in a variety of color temperature and CRI
options
