Billerica, MA - February 17, 2009 ― Luminus Devices, Inc., today announced availability of the SST-90 white PhlatLight® LED, a large chip white LED in a new surface mount (SMT) package. The SST-90 combines the benefits of high power and efficiency, enabling lighting fixture OEMs to replace bulbs and LED arrays with a single PhlatLight LED. For LED customers, this results in simplified designs, lower costs and faster time-to-market.

“The SST-90 is a surface mount package in a form factor that OEMs are familiar with and use regularly,” said Dave Sciabica, head of the Lighting Business Group at Luminus Devices. “With the introduction of the SST-90, we continue to enable new applications that benefit from a highly efficient, high-brightness single light source.”

The light emitting surface of the SST-90 is a single, monolithic die that is nine square millimeters in size. The SST-90 produces 1,000 lumens with 10 watts input (at 6,500K) and 2,250 lumens at its maximum rated drive current. PhlatLight LEDs are mercury-free and highly reliable and have a lifetime of 60,000 hours with lumen maintenance of greater than 70 percent. The SST-90 is ideally suited for general lighting applications, including architectural, retail and residential lighting as well as wide area street and parking lot lighting.

The SST-90 white PhlatLight LED will be available for sampling at the beginning of March with production volume shipments starting in the second quarter of this year.

Luminus Devices, Inc. has also announced the CST-90 white PhlatLight® LED, the newest addition to the PhlatLight LED family of products developed for fixture manufacturers in the general lighting industry. The CST-90 white PhlatLight LED enables lighting fixture OEMs to replace bulbs and LED arrays with a single large, LED, resulting in simplified designs, lower costs and faster time-to-market. The PhlatLight CST-90 comes in a connectorized
chip-on-board package with standard mounting features that make it easy to integrate and is simple to service and upgrade even after the fixture has been installed.

“In a direct response to the growing needs of lighting fixture designers, the CST-90 white PhlatLight LED offers excellent system flexibility, reliability and efficiency,” said Dave Sciabica, head of the Lighting Business Group at Luminus Devices. “With the introduction of the CST-90, Luminus is redefining solid-state lighting system design conventions by offering fixture designers a single light source alternative to common LED arrays.”

The light emitting surface of the CST-90 is a single, monolithic die that is nine square millimeters in size and integrates seamlessly with industry standard optics. The CST-90 produces 1,000 lumens with 10 watts input (at 6,500K) and 2,750 lumens at its maximum rated drive current. PhlatLight LEDs are mercury-free and highly reliable and have a lifetime of 60,000 hours with lumen maintenance of greater than 70 percent. The CST-90 is ideally suited for general lighting applications, including architectural, retail and residential lighting as well as wide area street and parking lot lighting.

The CST-90 will be available for sampling at the beginning of March with production volume shipments starting in the second quarter of this year.
