PhlatLight® White LED SST-90

BILLERICA, Ma. - Luminus Devices, Inc., today announced availability of the SST-90 white PhlatLight® LED, a large chip white LED in a new surface mount (SMT) package. The SST-90 combines the benefits of high power and efficiency, enabling lighting fixture OEMs to replace bulbs and LED arrays with a single PhlatLight LED. For LED customers, this results in simplified designs, lower costs and faster time-to-market.

"The SST-90 is a surface mount package in a form factor that OEMs are familiar with and use regularly," said Dave Sciabica, head of the Lighting Business Group at Luminus Devices. "With the introduction of the SST-90, we continue to enable new applications that benefit from a highly efficient, high-brightness single light source."

The light emitting surface of the SST-90 is a single, monolithic die that is nine square millimeters in size. The SST-90 produces 1,000 lumens with 10 watts input (at 6,500K) and 2,250 lumens at its maximum rated drive current. PhlatLight LEDs are mercury-free and highly reliable and have a lifetime of 60,000 hours with lumen maintenance of greater than 70 percent. The SST-90 is ideally suited for general lighting applications, including architectural, retail and residential lighting as well as wide area street and parking lot lighting.

The SST-90 white PhlatLight LED will be available for sampling at the beginning of March with production volume shipments starting in the second quarter of this year.
