New Lumileds power LED is a small secret

Feb. 12, 2007
Lumileds will unveil a miniature power LED in a few weeks' time.
Attendees of last week's LED4Europe event in Brussels got the briefest sneak preview of Philips Lumileds' latest power LED, which is certain to have a huge impact on the LED marketplace.

The performance characteristics of the device where not discussed, and Lumileds is keeping the name under wraps before the planned launch in early March.

However, the key feature of the device, containing a single 1x1 mm2 LED chip, is its very small size, only a fraction of the size of the Luxeon K2.

Key customers are evaluating the new device now. Unlike the K2 (which was announced a year before it was actually available), the new LED will be available immediately once the announcement is made.
