Toshiba introduces new high luminous flux white LEDs

May 6, 2011
Date Announced: 06 May 2011 Irvine, Calif. - Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., (TAEC)* has announced the addition of a new series of LEDs. Using a new package design, TAEC has developed small high luminous flux white LEDs with high luminous efficiency. With a broad lineup ranging from high-efficient, high-output models to high-color rendering models, these LEDs can be used as light sources for a variety of lighting applications, including replacement lamps, architectural lighting, retail display, commercial/industrial, outdoor and residential lighting.Ideal as a replacement for traditional fluorescent bulbs in general lighting applications, Toshiba's new high-output white LEDs provide one of the industry's highest level of efficiency at 120 lm/W, are housed in a very thin package (0.65 mm thick, making them suitable for small equipment) and have a long lifespan due to low thermal resistance. Additionally, a unique packaging structure and wide directional characteristics make these LEDs appropriate for lighting large areas.Features include:* Luminous efficiency up to 120 lm/W. (1-watt type)* One of the industry's thinnest packages for 1-watt white LEDs. (*)* Package size: length: 3.1 mm; width: 3.8 mm; height: 0.65 mm* Wide directional characteristics: 130 degrees to 140 degrees (typ.)* Color variation: 6500 to 3000 K (this chromaticity range is compliant with ANSI C78.377)* High color rendering models close to natural light* Support for lighting applications with the following requirements: 40 kh@Tj=80 degrees C; 70 percent survival rateAvailabilityThe Toshiba white high flux LEDs are available now. Budgetary pricing begins at $3.92, with volume discounts available.Toshiba's Discrete ProductsSince 1986, Toshiba Corp. has ranked as the top discrete supplier on a worldwide basis, based on annual revenue from international shipments of total discrete products. According to the most recent annual report from market research firm Gartner Dataquest (San Jose, CA), Toshiba remained the top discrete semiconductor supplier. (Source: "2009 Worldwide Semiconductor Market Share Report," Gartner, released April 2010). More specifically, Toshiba is a leading supplier in a number of discrete product categories, including power transistors, rectifiers and thyristors, LMOS logic, CMOS logic, photocouplers, Toslinks™, LEDs, small signal diodes and transistors. The company's discrete devices are designed to meet the growing demand for high-performance and lower voltages in today's wireless telecommunications and consumer electronics applications, while emphasizing its strength in the automotive and industrial markets.*About Toshiba Corp. and TAECThrough proven commitment, lasting relationships and advanced, reliable electronic components, Toshiba enables its customers to create market-leading designs.
