Pastel InspirationLEDs
Apr 2008
LumexRequest Info
PALATINE, Ill., April 30, 2008 -- Lumex Inc. said it is offering three new pastel color choices -- pink, purple and turquoise -- through its InspirationLEDs line of visible LEDs.

The company said the new colors are ideal for adding impact, excitement, and product differentiation to all types of electronics equipment ranging from consumer products through even the most specialized electronic instrumentation. Potential applications include home electronics, automotive and appliance displays, medical equipment, or anywhere soft pastel colors are desired -- with the reliability and low power consumption of LEDs.

"Our new InspirationLEDs will provide design engineers the opportunity to introduce innovative and nontraditional color choices into competitive market designs, without sacrificing product quality and speed-to-market," said Richard Halliday, Lumex's director of sales and marketing.

The pink LED is Lumex part number SSL-LX5093PC, and its color is defined via the chromaticity coordinates of 0.33 (X) and 0.20 (Y), according to the ICI standard colorimetric system. The purple device carries part number SSL-LX5093VC, and has X and Y color coordinates of 0.22 and 0.10 respectively. The turquoise InspirationLED is part number SSL-LX5093TC with color coordinates of 0.19 and 0.41.

These devices achieve their distinctive colors by starting with new high-brightness InGaN-on-silicon chip technology that provides light output at 470 nm. Then, unique phosphor coatings are applied to shift the color to the desired pink, purple or turquoise, Lumex said.

Lumex's InspirationLEDs have an axial intensity of 2200 mcd (typical) at an intermediate frequency of 20 mA, and a viewing angle of 20°. The angle is defined by the points where light output is 50 percent of the on-axis light intensity.

All devices are lead-free and RoHS complaint, and are available in bulk or on tape for automatic insertion equipment.

Samples of Lumex's pink, purple and turquoise InspirationLEDs are available from stock, with production quantities in 6 to 8 weeks. Pricing is approximately 40 cents each in quantities of 10,000.

The qualities of color associated with hue and saturation, but not brightness or lightness.
That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
Electromagnetic radiation detectable by the eye, ranging in wavelength from about 400 to 750 nm. In photonic applications light can be considered to cover the nonvisible portion of the spectrum which includes the ultraviolet and the infrared.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
