Soraa To Showcase New GaN-on-GaN Lamps

The company will display its Simply Perfect PAR and AR111 lamps next week at Light + Building

Soraa has announced a full range of LED AR111, PAR30, and PAR38 lamps that will be available to ship in late Q2 2014.

All Soraa lamps feature 3-phosphor GaN-on-GaN LEDs with violet pump that enable benefits such as Point Source Optics for uniform beams of high intensity, Violet 3-Phosphor (VP) Natural White and VP Full-spectrum Vivid Colour, which reveal the magic of whiteness and colours in every environment.

Now, Soraa’s Simply Perfect Light is available in a portfolio of larger form factors essential for retail, hospitality and residential applications.

Since its 2012 launch, the Soraa says its LED MR16 lamp has become synonymous with exceptional light quality and innovative design, which is continued in this portfolio expansion.

Soraa’s signature elements of Simply Perfect Light, powered by its GaN on GaN LED technology, shift the landscape completely.

In addition, Soraa’s SNAP System provides a lamp-accessory solution that delivers endless design and display possibilities and ANSI/IEC conforming form factors for worry-free fit and reliable operation in both enclosed and open fixtures.

“We eagerly anticipated Soraa’s MR16 product becoming available on the market, and it met all our expectations. Its narrow, tight, and very bright beam projects an even field of natural light thanks to its full-spectrum colour rendering, and its clean single shadow," says Johan Sustrac, CEO of the prominent Paris-based lighting design firm Distylight.

The Distylight projects include Club Med Bahamas, the Kuznetsky Hotel in Moscow, the Pathé Gaumont cinemas in France and numerous hotels in Paris like Hotel Codet or Hotel Rebuplique.

“We love the smart SNAP System that provides us lighting designers with endless possibilities and huge flexibility to change the spread and colour temperature of our LED, without having to change our source. We are also looking forward to having Soraa’s AR111 on the EU market, especially for its high power performance, its dimmable aspect and of course the great flexibility of the SNAP System," continues Sustrac.

Soraa’s large lamp portfolio of AR111, PAR30 Long Neck (LN), PAR30 Short Neck (SN) and PAR38 lamps achieve 1000 lumen output with VP Natural White and VP Vivid Colour technology, defined by full-visible-spectrum, high whiteness rendering, 95-CRI, and 95-R9. The family of large lamps will be available in 25°, 36°, and 60° beam angles, and in a wide range of colour temperatures.

The AR111 is an important lamp for object lighting, requiring narrow spots, crisp beam edges, and no glare. With a peak intensity of 27,500Cd, Soraa’s 8° 95-CRI/95-R9 AR111 is the only LED product that matches halogen levels, 50 percent higher than the nearest 80-CRI competitor.

The PAR30LN and PAR30SN lamps offer a 8° narrow spot option on the market without active cooling, achieving a centre beam intensity of 28,250Cd, more than twice the level of the nearest 80-CRI competitor.

Soraa will be at Light + Building in Frankfurt, Germany at booth Hall 4.1, Stand B55, taking place from March 30th to April 4th, 2014.


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.
