Osram Expands Ostar Stage Multichip LED Range
LEDs provide twice the brightness from the same surface area
Osram Opto Semiconductors has expanded its Osram Ostar Stage family. The four chips of the new high-power LED in red, green, blue and white can be operated at up to 2.5A(DC), says the company, providing twice the output of 30W from the same chip and package area compared to the existing version. The new LEDs were developed primarily for use in stage spotlights.
The four high-power chips with the latest thinfilm and UX:3 technology in red, green, blue and white are the basis of the improved brightness of the new Ostar Stage. The 1mm2 chips can be operated for the first time at up to 2.5A providing an output of 30W, which is twice as high as the existing version. The Osram Ostar Stage versions now cover outputs between 15 and 60W.
"The higher current which is necessary for a higher output requires the thermal management of the Osram Ostar Stage to be adapted so that the heat generated in the chip can be removed as effectively as possible", said Wolfgang Schnabel, product marketing LED Industry at Osram Opto Semiconductors.
"At the same time many features such as the package size and beam characteristics match the ones from previous versions. That way customers can stick to their existing optics, and the overall design of their lighting solutions", added Schnabel.
According to Osram, the Ostar Stage gives customers more flexibility for their stage spotlight product portfolio. Spotlights with the same number of LEDs will be even more powerful, and spotlights with fewer LEDs will have the same brightness.
Apart from stage lighting, the new Osram Ostar Stage LEDs are suitable for use in mood and architectural lighting; in the latter case, they are the preferred light source for effect and accent lighting. The high-power LEDs are available from Q1/2016 in high volumes.
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
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.
