Bridgelux Vero LED Arrays Raise The Industry Bar In Flexibility

The capabilities of the Vero series arrays lead to shorter product development times, lower inventory requirements, reduced costs and more light with less energy
Bridgelux's recently released Vero Series of LED Array products are now shipping.

These products have a performance efficacy of 120 lm/w nominal and 110 lm/w minimum average. This performance enhancement delivers energy savings of approximately 11 percent over the prior product generation and provides a significantly accelerated return on investment.

What's more, the Vero Series arrays are now available with 2SDCM MacAdam and 3 SDCM options - raising the industry bar in colour control precision and uniformity.

The featured 120 lm/w efficacy is an average performance across all form factors in the Bridgelux Vero Array Series based on 3000K 80 CRI configurations driven at nominal currents. With some Vero configurations driven at lower currents, users can readily achieve efficacies up to 140 lm/w. The Vero arrays also deliver average minimums of 110 lm/w and provide designers with excellent design and manufacturable flexibility.

The Vero platform enables plug & play connectivity for lighting manufacturers, enabling leading solid state lighting product performance capabilities while streamlining production processes for lighting manufacturers. These capabilities lead to shorter product development times, lower inventory requirements, reduced costs and more light with less energy.

Beyond saving energy, the Bridgelux Vero Series of LED arrays provide customers with a standard option of choosing either 2SDCM or 3SDCM MacAdam colour control. Having more precise colour control options improves the quality of light by providing greater consistency and uniformity between adjacent light sources. This exciting advancement in colour control options with the Vero Array Series enables clean and consistent lighting installations with both high quality colour rendering and appearance. The Vero Series also exceeds California Energy Commission R9 requirements for luminaires and lamps.

Since the launch of the Vero platform just 4 months ago, XAL, Licht + Design, Amerlux, and Dongmyung have joined a rapidly growing list of the world’s most highly recognised global lighting manufacturers to incorporate Vero LED arrays into products for retail, commercial and other applications.

“The innovative feature set on-board in Vero Series arrays provides us with tremendous flexibility, particularly in designing new products for manufacturability," said Harald Dirnberger, CEO of XAL in Austria. “The efficiency and lumens per watt performance that Bridgelux regularly delivers helps keep XAL products competitive in the marketplace and helps drive broader adoption of solid state lighting."

Vero arrays are compatible with a wide variety of standard drivers (350mA increments) and optical components, providing manufacturers with greater flexibility and a wide range of options, shortening product development times, lowering inventory requirements and reducing costs. Electrical connections can be established with thermally isolated solder pads or by using a solder-less on-board connector port. The solder free connector port simplifies manufacturing processes, reduces production time/cost, and eliminates the potential for solder failures.

“The Vero arrays have been one of our most successful product offerings in our ten year history," said Aaron Merrill, Director, Product Line Management of Bridgelux. “Solid state lighting is making huge gains in virtually every segment and geography, but we must continue to find ways to drive down total system costs, while increasing performance. Vero arrays will play an instrumental role in bringing new methodologies and technologies to the solid state lighting market, and provide a platform for the convergence of technologies required for smart lighting."

Product Availability

The Vero Series Arrays are available now in four different sizes with performance specifications to fit a broad spectrum of residential, commercial, industrial and interior/exterior applications.

Other features include:

1. Lumen output performance ranges from 240 to 16,400 lumens

2. Broad range of CCT options from 2700 to 5000K

3. CRI options include 70, 80, 90, and 97 CRI Décor products

4. 3SDCM standard for 2700K - 4000K CCT with 2SDCM options now available

5. Reliable operation at up to 2x rated drive current

6. Radial die pattern improves lumen density and beam control

7. Thermally isolated solder pads reduce manufacturing time and complexity

8. Solder-less connector port enables plug & play connectivity and field upgradability

9. Top side product marking and 2D bar code improve inventory management

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.
