Luminus ships UV Slim LED package production units

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for solid-state lighting applications, says that its new UV Slim LED packages (which began sampling in May) have begun shipping as production units.

Designed specifically for high-density linear arrays, UV Slim LED devices provide the maximum UV energy of any single-die UV LED available, claims the firm. In addition to superior performance, higher reliability, and greater energy efficiency over traditional UV mercury lamp technology, the devices also improve workplace safety and lower environmental impact by eliminating harmful byproducts such as ozone and mercury, it adds.

“Customers can tightly align the UV Slim LEDs together in order to generate the highest-power-density UV LED line source available, which is especially useful for line-curing applications,” says Mike Lim, director of Global Industrial and New Business.

Designed with graphic arts printing in mind, the UV Slim devices also provide the traditional advantages of Luminus’ 'Big Chip' LED technology, including improved thermal power density and simpler support system architecture, along with delivering greater wall-plug efficiency than traditionally sized LED dies, the firm claims.

The new CBT-120-UV-C14 UV Slim LEDs have a single monolithic 12mm2 die that emits directly into air. They are available in a NIST-traceable power output range of 11-13.3W.

The UV Slim LEDs are available worldwide through distribution partners Avnet, Digi-Key, EBV Elektronik, Marubun and Mouser.

Luminus selected by AlwaysOn as a GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 winner

At its seventh annual GoingGreen Silicon Valley (27-28 November) event in San Francisco, media network AlwaysOn honoured Luminus as a GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 winner, signifying “leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and green technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched players in traditional technology”. Luminus was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts worldwide based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

“GoingGreen highlights the importance of green technology and the positive impact that LEDs can have on our energy usage and our environment, and through this our company plans to encourage the widespread use of LEDs to save energy, reduce costs, provide better lighting solutions, and create a cleaner global environment,” said Luminus’ CEO Keith T.S. Ward. 

The 200 winning companies were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and green-tech industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.

“This year’s GoingGoing Global 200 displays a maturity in the green technology industry that makes it very attractive to both investors and innovators,” comments AlwaysOn’s founder & editor Tony Perkins. “The strength of these companies lies in their ability to nurture innovative ideas and see them through to successful, sustainable, and profitable businesses.”
