SAN JOSE, Calif. -- December 05, 2012

Building on the market-leading innovations of hot testing and Freedom from
Binning™, Philips Lumileds introduces LUXEON^® T, the next generation
illumination-grade LED tested and specified at 85°C to ensure in-application
performance with tight color control, to within 3-Step MacAdams (SDCM).
Optimized for efficacy and supported by the industry-leading forward voltage
of 2.7V and the lowest thermal resistance of 3°C per watt, LUXEON T allows
designers to achieve the highest possible system efficacy and the flexibility
to reduce the number of emitters, all without compromising on high color
rendering (CRI) across the full Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) range from
2700K to 5000K.

“With its high efficacy and luminance, LUXEON T is ideal for directional
applications such as MR16 and PAR retrofit lamps,” says Kathleen Hartnett,
Product Line Director. “LUXEON T is able to deliver high center beam candle
power (CBCP) and precise optical control, which are required to deliver the
narrow beams desired for these systems.”

LUXEON T delivers up to 140 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 85°C in neutral white
at 5000K 80 CRI minimum from a compact 3.7mm x 3.7mm package. The breakthrough
performance of LUXEON T is realized through Philips Lumileds technology
leadership—in epitaxial growth delivering leading wall plug efficiency and hot
cold factor, new phosphors to enhance conversion efficiency, and package
optimization for light extraction and lowest thermal resistance.

LUXEON T is now available in five different CCTs, 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K
and 5000K all specified at high-CRI, 80 minimum. In addition to the
market-leading 80 CRI range, LUXEON T is available with 95 typical CRI and
exceptional red rendering (R9) of 90, making it ideal for the professional
lighting market. To enable system level performance improvements in outdoor
and industrial applications including high bay, street and roadway lighting,
LUXEON T will be extended to the 70 CRI range in January 2013.

LUXEON T is available from Future Lighting Solutions:
