REGENSBURG, Germany - OSRAM Opto Semiconductors announced that its series of Golden DRAGON LED has been chosen by Advanced Thermal Devices, Inc (ATD) for its LED illumination projects in Taiwan. Integrating the cutting edge chip technology and fitted with a silicone dome for greater light extraction efficiency, OSRAM's Golden DRAGON and Golden DRAGON Plus LEDs provide high quality lighting solution for outdoor illumination. Both of them are characterized by an exceptionally long lifetime.

There are two LED illumination projects ATD has been working with OSRAM.

23 solar powered LED street luminaires have been installed for Taiwan Power Company in Taipei in the fall of this year. Here installed is Golden DRAGON Plus LED, a durable LED with a lifetime of more than 50,000 hours. Combined with ATD's solar technology, it enables the new LED streetlamps with outstanding energy efficiency results. Furthermore, the LED luminaire lights are fully adjustable so that, for example, in the middle of the night, light outputs can be dimmed down by 50%, thereby significantly reducing energy consumption.

In motorcycle lanes of Zhong-Gang Road in Taichung City, 111 sets of 100W LED street luminaires have been installed. This project proves the excellent performance and wide/even light distributionof energy efficient LED lighting solutions in roadway & public area. Incorporating high performance Golden DRAGON LEDs with long lifetime and maximum possible light from the smallest of sources, LED street luminaries are both economical and environmentally friendly.

"Not only illumination enterprises but also general public now recognize LEDs are a viable alternative to conventional street lighting. As a pioneer in LED technology, we will continue to support our business partners to deliver energy-efficient and cost-effective illumination solutions," said Dr. Alfred Felder, President & CEO of OSRAM Opto Semiconductors Asia Ltd.

About Advanced Thermal Devices Inc.

ATD was founded in 2005 as an innovative thermal technology specialist. ATD commercialized Loop Heat Pipe (LHP) thermal technology, originally used in spacecraft. By connecting an LHP heat dissipation system with LED lighting, ATD successfully cut down light decay rates. According to 3 years field test, the light decay of ATD's product is lower than 3%, which is the best record in the world. ATD's products conform to UL, CE, CQC and CNS regulations.
