The Osram Ostar Stage is equipped with four high-current chips based on the latest thin-film and UX:3 chip technologies. With an area of 2mm² each, the chips are twice as large as the previous ones, but at 5.7 x 6.4 x 1.3 mm, the package size is only slightly larger. Thin-film chips in red (625 nm) and UX:3 chips in green (530 nm), blue (“deep blue”: 453 nm) and white are used. Up to 4.5A can be applied to each chip, which allows more light to be produced from a small surface. With a binning current of 1.4A the red chips achieve typical values of 140 lm, and the green chips 280 lm. The “deep blue” chip provides a light output of 1.8W. If the LED is operated at the maximum current of 4.5A, the brightness per colour increases by factor 2.6. Thanks to a new ceramic converter, the white chip in the Osram Ostar Stage will have a lifetime of 20,000 hours (L50/B50) at full output, achieving a brightness of more than 1000 lm.
