Osram's Advanced Power TopLEDs boosted by thin-film technology

Osram Opto Semiconductors says that, due to the use of thin-film chip technology, its new Advanced Power TopLED is 50% brighter than its predecessor, and ranks between Osram's standard Power TopLED and the high-power Golden Dragon LEDs.

At 140mA, the Advanced Power TopLED has an output of 19lm in green and amber, 15lm in white and red, 14lm in yellow and 5lm in blue. The high output makes blue, green and red LEDs fit for illuminated advertising and effect lighting, the company claims, and opening up new areas of application for all colours, particularly for blue and green LEDs which, like the other colour variants, can be used for area and effect lighting.

Existing LED lighting solutions can provide the same amount of light with fewer light sources or the same number of light sources can be used to give more light, saving energy and reducing costs for the entire lighting system, says Osram. The SMT package ensures that the LEDs are compatible with standard solder processes.
