Osram's Compact LEDs Conquer Compact Spotlights

The firm says its latest III-nitride based CoB LEDs offer twice the light from half the surface
For the first time, Osram is offering a chip-on-board LED.

The Soleriq P 9 is suitable for compact powerful spotlights like the ones used in retail outlets and museums.

The latest member of the Osram Soleriq family produces 2000 lumen from a surface with a diameter of nine millimetres. Compared with the existing Soleriq S 13, that is twice as much light from an area half the size. This high brightness is made possible by the surface-emitting chips used.

Osram says just one of the new LEDs is enough to replace a 35 W HID lamp for spotlighting.

The P 9 has a light emitting surface of 64 mm² and produces 2000 lm and has a luminous efficacy of 100 lm/W (at a temperature of 85°C and 3000 K).

Even at very high packing densities they can produce high luminous flux with above-average efficiency. The small light-emitting surface means that extremely compact and therefore lightweight optics can be fitted for highly compact spotlights.

The spotlights can therefore be less cumbersome and more cost-effective, while still providing the same luminous intensity.



The Soleriq P 9 has been designed for use in spotlights for directional indoor lighting and in particular for shop and museum lighting

“The Soleriq P 9 is just the start of a series of LEDs with enormous brightness and efficiency, generated from a light-emitting surface of only a few millimetres in diameter. Over the next few months we will be unveiling more products in the Soleriq P family, taking the benefits of the P series into different form factors and areas of application,"explains Andreas Vogler, responsible for the P 9 in the SSL division at Osram Opto Semiconductors.

The new Soleriq is being tested and measured at a temperature of 85°C to simulate the thermal conditions in actual applications as closely as possible. Customers will therefore be able to directly plan the use of the LED in their applications and will not have to carry out time-consuming appraisals based on data sheet values.

The P 9 is the first member of the new Soleriq P series; following the existing E and S series. All Soleriq versions are CoB LEDs (Chip-on-Board) and offer a high brightness. They are ideal for indoor spotlight applications and are easy to install. The Osram partner network “LED Light for you" offers accessories such as holders, optics and drivers tailored to the Soleriq families.

 



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.
