Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS), the innovative technology solutions company that
brings invention to market, today announced it has expanded its LED bulb
product portfolio to include both PAR30 and BR30 bulbs. Like the previously
introduced Rambus A19 bulb, the two new products are built on the company’s
MicroLens® optical technology, provide excellent energy efficiency and broad
dimmer compatability, and are designed to provide highly effective thermal
management. The new Rambus PAR30 (65-watt equivalent) and BR30 (75-watt
equivalent) LED bulbs are designed to address the energy efficiency, reduced
glare and lighting experience needs of consumers, property managers,
retailers, lighting designers, and specifiers across a wide range of indoor
and outdoor lighting applications.

“The LED market is experiencing record growth as consumer and professional
demand for energy-efficient products continues to rise and new innovations
improve the performance, cost and overall value of LED-based products,” said
Jeffery Parker, president of the Rambus Lighting and Display Technology
business. “Rambus is at the forefront of LED bulb innovation with our optical
technologies, significantly improving light distribution, performance, and
overall product lifetime.”

Both the Rambus PAR30 and BR30 LED bulbs exceed lumen output specified by
Energy Star. In addition, the superior micro-electronics improve dimmability
and provide a better lighting experience. The full portfolio of Rambus LED
bulbs are currently available for commercial orders, with shipments expected
to start by the third quarter of this year.

The Elite Group will promote and sell the Rambus LED bulb portfolio to retail
markets within North America, including the broad range of major retail
customers already working with Elite. Elite Group’s L’Image home products
division will be demonstrating bulbs built on Rambus’ technology at the
upcoming National Hardware Show (Booth # 3111), from May 7 – May 9 in Las
