Bridgelux launches Vero LED array platform

LED chip and lighting array maker Bridgelux Inc of Livermore, CA, USA has introduced its Vero LED array. Vero’s advancements revolve around three innovations: a new, higher flux density LED array; an increase in lumens per watt by up to 20% over existing Bridgelux LED arrays; and a simplified assembly process that streamlines manufacturing and improves overall system reliability, says the firm.

“The Vero platform is a major advancement in LED array packaging technology,” said Jim Miller, Bridgelux’s chief sales & marketing officer. “The Vero product is manufactured using highly automated processes to reduce cost and can be easily upgraded for the smart applications of the future. The Vero array offers our customers the manufacturing and design capabilities they need to open up new design possibilities, while ultimately driving faster adoption of LED lighting.”

The Vero platform provides complete application coverage from four form factors, delivering the light output and color temperatures required for retail, hospitality, commercial, industrial, residential and outdoor lighting applications. The arrays will initially be available with performance ranging from 800 lumens in warm white (3000K) up to 20,000 lumens in cool white (5000K) with multiple CCT and CRI options, including the 97 CRI Decor product option.

With significant advances in luminaire design flexibility, the Vero product offers a light emitting surface (LES) area with higher flux densities than earlier Bridgelux array designs. It has been engineered to be driven reliably at much higher drive currents than previous offerings to further increase performance and reduce cost.

Vero is compatible with a wide variety of standard drivers and optical components. The electrical connection may be established via solder pads or by using a solderless on-board connector provided by Molex.

The Vero platform is currently being evaluated by Bridgelux customers and will be broadly commercially available in first-quarter 2013.
