Bridgelux adds high-efficacy LED Arrays for retrofit bulb market

LED lighting and chip maker Bridgelux Inc of Livermore, CA, USA has expanded its portfolio of LED Arrays to include new high-efficacy products that meet the price and performance demands of the $10bn LED retrofit bulb market opportunity.

Bridgelux says that it is now delivering high-brightness, energy-efficient light for both low and line (mains) voltage products to simplify system design and integration for lamp manufacturers.

The LS Array Series now includes options designed specifically for low voltage lighting. The new miniaturized LS arrays enable both diffuse and directional light sources for applications including landscape lighting, residential lighting, track lighting, MR16 lamps and other 12V retrofit light bulbs. Delivering 240-360 lumens in warm white and cool white, the products are suitable as replacement options for low-wattage halogen and incandescent lamps.

The ES Array Series has also been expanded to include new voltage options for both cool white and warm white to better enable the A-line and decorative lamp markets. The new ES arrays take advantage of existing electronic drivers to facilitate rapid new lamp and luminaire product introductions.

“As governments around the world rapidly move to eliminate inefficient incandescent lamps, the demand is growing for LED replacement lamps that can deliver the quality of light required by consumers,” says VP of marketing Jason Posselt. “These new arrays deliver high-quality light while simultaneously helping our customers reduce design complexity and product cost for this price sensitive market,” he adds.
