Soraa's LED Optical Light Engine Named Light Source Of The Year

Two LED Lamps also highly commended in awards competition

Soraa, the maker of GaN on GaN LED technology, has announced that its LED Optical Light Engine was named Light Source of the Year at the Lighting Design Awards 2015, hosted at the London Hilton this week.

On top of this achievement, both the AR111 LED with SNAP System and Constant Current MR16 LED lamps were 'Highly Commended' in the same category. This recognition joins other awards Soraa has received over the past 12 months including: LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards, Architectural SSL Magazine Product Innovation Awards (PIA), Red Dot Awards 2014, among others.

 "To be shortlisted in one of these categories is an accomplishment in itself, so the fact that Soraa had not one, but three products shortlisted for 'Light Source of the Year' is a truly exceptional accomplishment," said Nick Farraway, Senior VP International Sales and Marketing. "When the LED Optical Light Engine was announced the winner of the category, I was excited, but not surprised. Fixture manufacturers have been asking for a compact, powerful, high-quality light engine and our full visible spectrum GaN on GaN LED technology has delivered."

At this year's Lighting Design Awards, over 700 designers, architects and suppliers attended the event to celebrate the achievements and innovations made by the lighting design community. The panel of judges included 28 professionals from all points of the specification and supply chain including engineers, designers, specifiers, sales professionals and even journalists.

Designed for seamless fixture integration, Soraa's Optical Light Engines are compatible with a wide variety of industry-standard LED drivers and suitable for use in enclosed, non-ventilated indoor and outdoor fixtures.

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.
