Osram And Evolucia LED Luminaires Raise Heads In Mexico

Osram's ProPoint Cobrahead luminaires which employ III-nitride LEDs, use Evolucia's Aimed Optics and are now being marketed in Mexico
Osram Mexico and Evolucia have finalised an agreement whereby the companies will develop, deliver and market Osram ProPoint Cobrahead LED outdoor luminaires using Evolucia Aimed Optics.

Under the agreement, the companies will work together to integrate Evolucia's Aimed Optics technology with superior LED modules and lighting controls from Osram. The combination is expected to result in one of the highest performing and highest quality LED outdoor luminaires in the industry.

"The combination of cutting edge LED technology from Osram with Evolucia's industry leading light distribution capabilities allows us to deliver high-performance and superior quality LED outdoor luminaires to our customer base," says Paolo Bortolan , Presidente y Director General - CEO of Osram Mexico.

"The new Osram ProPoint Cobrahead using Evolucia Aimed Optics outdoor luminaire delivers the perfect amount of clean white light to the target area and uses up to 62 percent less energy than traditional fixtures."

Evolucia, Inc. is a Sarasota, Florida-based company that recently won the lighting industry's coveted Best LED Street Light award, in its category, which was presented by the US Department of Energy, largely because of the proprietary Aimed Optics technology that was invented by the company's lighting design team.

Mel Interiano, Chief Executive Officer of Evolucia, adds, "We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Osram Mexico. We have invested more than $25 million in our Aimed Optics product development platform and have spent 5 years working to perfect the LED mounting angles, heat sinking and aesthetics to ensure that not only performance is at the highest level, but also that our products can be manufactured and delivered at extremely competitive prices."


AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
