Flip Chip LED is up to 15% Brighter, 5x Stronger, and 25% Cooler than Alternative Technologies

CAROL STREAM, IL – Lumex announces the global launch of its TitanBrite wireless bonded LED featuring "flip chips" that are up to 15% brighter than any others in the market. In addition to the standard 3W and 6W LEDs, Lumex's TitanBrite wireless bonded LED is also available in 9W, ensuring Lumex's wireless bonded LED is the brightest light source in the industry.

Wireless bonded LED technology, often referred to as "flip chip," offers several key performance benefits over traditional SMT (surface mount technology) LEDs including enhanced durability, enhanced heat dissipation and superior light performance. Applications for the TitanBrite wireless bonded LED include:
- Automotive – daylight, running light, dome light, foot well and floorboard runner lighting
- Appliance – cabinet lighting, accent lighting, backlighting
- Industrial control – donut lighting, warning indicators, inspection lighting
- Medical – surgical lights, examination lights, oral surgery lighting
- Signage – channel lighting, backlighting, warning and hazard lights
- Construction – warning lights, light towers, traffic lights
- Military – heavy equipment, construction and transportation lights

Enhanced durability
The enhanced shock and vibration resistance of wireless bonded LEDs compared to traditional LEDs stems from its more durable design. Due to the absence of a wire bond and a hard epoxy layer, the wireless bonded LEDs are five times stronger and more robustly designed than standard, high power LEDs.

Enhanced heat dissipation
Wireless bonded LEDs offer superior heat dissipation and are more adverse to shock and vibration than traditional high power LEDs. They can withstand higher temperatures without compromising performance and have a greater surface area for heat dissipation, making them more efficient at removing heat. Due to the placement of junction pads on the bottom of the flip chip, heat can be transported faster than with a regular high power LED, keeping this technology 25% cooler than traditional high power wire bond technologies.

Superior light performance
Wireless bonded LEDs provide superior light performance when compared with traditional LED technology. Higher light output is achieved in a more compact space and the light performance is not disrupted by shadows or other obstacles to consistent performance. With wireless bonded technology the chip can directly emit light from the top and the side with no wire bond casting shadows or creating uneven light distribution, providing 15% more light output.

Design options:
Lumex's TitanBrite wireless bonded LEDs are the only flip chip LEDs on the market available in both standard and custom colors and shapes. Standard shapes are circular and rectangular. Lumex can also design custom shapes such as octagons and triangles in order to fit any application. Standard colors include warm white and cool white and blue is available for custom products.

The RoHS compliant TitanBrite wireless bonded LEDs are available in 3W wireless bond light bar modules (cool white and warm white) and 6W wireless bond round modules (cool white and warm white) in addition to custom colors (including blue) and sizes for 3W, 6W and 9W. Pricing ranges from $6-$10 per unit. Lead times range from 8 to 10 weeks.
