Luminus’ Gen5 die boosts UV-A LED power density by 75%

Luminus Devices Inc of Sunnyvale, CA, USA – which designs and makes LEDs and solid-state technology (SST) light sources for illumination markets – has released the SBT-10X-UV LED series, a surface-mount device (SMD) that utilizes the firm’s latest Gen5 die architecture.

Delivering up to 75% higher output than Luminus’ Gen4 die, the Gen5 technology achieves what is claimed to be industry-leading flux of up to 5W from a single 1mm2-class chip. As such, it improves end-system performance for the most demanding curing applications including 3D printing, curing and maskless lithography, where maximum flux density directly translates to faster curing and higher productivity.

The Gen5 technology integrates know-how in very high-intensity chip structures that Luminus has developed and improved for over 15 years. This technology achieves reliability at drive conditions often 2x what the competition supports, it is claimed. It is available in 365nm, 385nm, 395nm, 405nm and 415nm wavelengths and comes in a compact 3.5mm x 3.5mm surface-mount cavity package with a flat borosilicate cover helping to maximize optical coupling efficiency into the end system.

“The SBT-10X brings our Gen5 technology in its most compact form factor, which will help accelerate adoption in a wide range of industrial systems that are starved for UV-A curing performance,” says senior marketing manager David Nowak. “We are especially excited to enable more compact, affordable high-resolution 3D printers that will help accelerate the adoption of the technology in prosumer segments thanks to affordable and compact printers that do not sacrifice quality.”

The SBT-10X LEDs are immediately available through Luminus’ authorized distributors.
