Thermal Models for LEDs Online
Osram Opto Semiconductors of Santa Clara, Calif., is providing downloads of thermal models for computing LED designs. Besides electrical, mechanical and optical data, a compact model for Flotherm software is permanently available at www.osram-os.com/thermal-files for calculating thermal behavior. The data is available for standard high-power LEDs in the visible range, particularly for the Dragon family, the Power TopLED range, the Advanced Power TopLED range and some Ostar variations. The compact model available on the Web site is a simplified thermal geometry model that can be integrated in Flotherm software and used for customer-specific calculations.
