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.
These new devices come in a standard T-5-mm packages with radial leads and epoxy lenses. 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.
