Soraa Gen3 LED Breaks Barriers

The GaN on GaN innovator has achieved a 30 percent lumen/W increase over the previous generation



Soraa has announced it has made the world's most efficient LED, which it will integrate into the market's first full-visible-spectrum, large form factor lamps.

Soraa says its third generation (Gen3) GaN on GaN LED achieves world-record setting wall-plug-efficiency, outperforming the nearest competitor by 20 percent at normal operating conditions.

In a year, Soraa has achieved a 30 percent increase in white lumen per watt (lm/W) efficiency over its prior generation LED, setting a pace of technology evolution which  it believes is unrivalled in the LED industry.

Soraa's Gen3 LED will be available in the second quarter of this year in a variety of product offerings: modules, large form factor PAR and AR lamps, and MR16 lamps.

Soraa says its full-visible-spectrum PAR30L lamp, powered by its Gen3 LED, will lead the market not only in light output, but also in colour and whiteness rendering; at CRI-95 and R9-95 it will achieve centre-beam intensity (CBCP) of 28,250cd at 8° beam angle, 10 percent higher than the CRI-85 offering of the nearest competitor.

Soraa claims its large form factor lamps will feature natural and accurate rendering of colours and whiteness, perfectly uniform beams of exceptionally high intensity, and clear single shadows.

"Soraa's Gen3 GaN on GaN LED package is a major milestone for the LED industry and a truly disruptive innovation. We have achieved a 30 percent lm/W efficiency improvement over our previous generation white LEDs, and what's amazing is that we expect to repeat these significant year-over-year performance gains in the future," says Jeff Parker, CEO of Soraa.

The company's Gen3 LED runs at 75 percent wall-plug-efficiency at a current density of 35A/cm2 and a junction temperature of 85°C, efficiency levels that are out of reach for other LED manufacturers.

With a proprietary three-phosphor combination, Soraa says its Gen3 LED emits full-visible-spectrum light (all the colors of the rainbow, including violet), which excites optical brightening agents and perfectly renders whiteness as well as colours.

Soraa will display its new full-visible-spectrum large lamp products at Strategies in Light in Santa Clara, California, from February 25th to 27th at booth #805.

The firm will also be showcasing its products at Light + Building in Frankfurt, Germany. This will take place between March 30th and April 4th at booth #4.1 B55.

 




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.
