May 26, 2010
Date Announced: 26 May 2010 “Shwo [Shuo] is the English translation for the Chinese word meaning Twinkle and is often used as a description of stars or other bright, celestial objects as seen from Earth. This word is a relevant description for this bright, compact Everlight LED package.”Tucheng, Taipei – May 26, 2010 – Expanding Everlight’s Lighting Series component portfolio, Everlight Electronics introduces another high power, high brightness LED package, the “Shwo” Series - our powerful, bright and economic (superb $/lm) LED series in a compact ceramic package.The Shwo series is a surface-mount high-power device featuring high brightness combined with a compact size (3.5x3.5x1.85mm) that is suitable for all kinds of lighting applications such as general illumination, flash, spot, signal, industrial and commercial lighting. With the capability of 100~700mA driving currents, the Shwo family can be driven up to 3 watts. The minimum luminous flux (lm) of the 1W Shwo can be up to 100 lm at 6500K(CCT) or 80 lm at 3000K(CCT) when driven with 350mA current. The minimum luminous flux (lm) of the 3W Shwo can be up to 160 lm at 6500K(CCT) or 120 lm at 3000K(CCT) when driven with 700mA current. The thermal pad of this device is electrically isolated providing convenience in thermal and electrical design. The Shwo series also has the advantage of low thermal resistance. It is one of the most promising devices in Everlight’s high power Lighting Series product offering and is ready to face the challenges of today’s Solid-State Lighting requirements. Everlight is also promoting closer working relationships between our R&D, Sales and Marketing teams to better meet and exceed our customer’s expectations in both product offering and technology perspectives. The Shwo LED series and its many technical features are a result of fostering a closer relationship between these teams.Features• Small package with high efficiency• ESD protection up to 8KV• Soldering method: SMT• Binning Parameters: Brightness, Forward Voltage, Wavelength and Chromaticity• Moisture Sensitivity Level: 1• RoHS compliant• Matches ANSI binning• Lumens Maintenance conforms to IESNA LM80 test methodApplications• General Lighting• Decorative and Entertainment Lighting• Signal and Symbol Luminaries for orientation marker lights (e.g. steps, exit ways, etc.)• Exterior and Interior Automotive IlluminationSample Available: Yes.Mass Production: End of Second Quarter 2010.
