PHILADELPHIA, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Philips Lumileds today introduced
the LUXEON CoB (Chip-on-Board) portfolio, the first LED array in the industry
to combine exceptional beam uniformity with industry-leading efficacy in the
smallest light-emitting surface. The LUXEON CoB family can deliver up to 6000
lumens and reaches efficacies of up to 120 lm/W (hot tested) for bright white
80 CRI lights. This makes the LUXEON CoB an ideal choice for high lumen
downlights, spotlights and directional lamps. The new LUXEON CoB is being
demonstrated this week at the Philips booth at LIGHTFAIR International
Tradeshow, April 23-25 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Booth #1401).

Due to its uniform, small light-emitting surface (LES) and world-class
efficiency, designers can reduce optical solutions expenses and still achieve
higher center-beam candle power (CBCP). In commercial applications such as
downlights, uniformity and rotational symmetry are particularly important
performance metrics, areas where the LUXEON CoB array excels.

"We engineer our products for optimal light quality and efficacy," explains
Eric Senders, Product Line Director of LUXEON CoB products at Philips
Lumileds. "The LUXEON CoB is designed to speed time-to-market of solid-state
lighting solutions at a lower overall cost, with a smaller footprint, smaller
beam angles and higher CBCP."

The LUXEON CoB arrays are hot tested and specified at 85°C and utilize a
metal-core printed circuit board (MCPCB) solution. This platform enables
better reliability, thermal heat dissipation and handling in LED assembly.
Offered initially in four versions with an LES of 9, 13 or 15 mm, the LUXEON
CoB arrays deliver up to 6000 lm output.
