LED lighting modules – taking the heat out of the situation

Dec. 19, 2005
Thermal management using appropriate packaging materials is essential for high-power LED applications, explains James Stratford of Universal Science.
The appeal of using LEDs to solve lighting applications is growing rapidly. The numerous and significant benefits of using modules that incorporate a matrix of LEDs are being recognised by design engineers working in a number of key industry sectors including aerospace, architectural lighting, and the "golden egg" market of automotive.

The attributes of design flexibility and low power consumption, plus even and reliable light and long lifetime, distinguish LED modules from designs based on traditional filament lamps and fluorescent tubes. LED modules can also have knock-on benefits such as greatly reducing the size and complexity of the module and simplifying the lens design.
