Osram Opto provides direct web access to LED ray data files

Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg, Germany claims that it is the first LED maker to provide direct web access to its LEDs’ ray data files (which indicate the pattern in which light is emitted and include the coordinates of the emission point, the direction of emission, the intensity and the wavelength).

Specifications can be viewed for most of the firm’s LED portfolio, including infrared emitter diodes (IREDs). “Our customers have access to all the latest data at any time of the day or night, so it is now even easier for them to plan their lighting systems, test the LEDs and produce their lighting concepts,” says Wolfgang Lex, head of the LED business unit.

Osram Opto says that one can immediately view and download all the ray data and a custom CAD model for board design (3D design and package), along with information on how to use this data, without complicated navigation or a long list of supplementary questions to answer. Product information focuses on fine measurements and small distances, so that external optics and light guides can be customized.

The online resource means that access to semiconductor technology is no longer limited to LED specialists, says the firm. “Our data on the internet also gives new customers a chance to develop LED solutions themselves without having to rely on external partners,” Lex adds.
