LUXEON A is the latest illumination grade LED from Philips Lumileds that reduces the engineering effort required for new solutions and delivers Freedom From Binning. LUXEON A shares the LUXEON Rebel ES platform and footprint, incorporating a 2-square millimeter thin film flip chip and Lumiramic phosphor technology to deliver high quality light at 2700K and 3000K very high efficacy and light output.
All LUXEON A LEDs are hot-tested and specified at a junction temperature of 85°C that represents real-world operating conditions. Lumileds' unique chip and phosphor technology allows color targeting that ensures all LUXEON A emitters fall within a single 3-step MacAdam ellipse on the black body curve. The quality, uniformity, and consistency of the light from LED to LED relieves luminaire manufacturers and lighting designers of many of their long held concerns about the suitability of LED technology for illumination applications.
LUXEON A is available for sampling and design-in activities and will go into high-volume production in early May 2011.
