LED beam control modules for medium and high power lighting applications

March 14, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Plessey Semiconductor (Plymouth, UK) has revealed ain integrated LED beam control module, branded Stellar; it is a GaN-on-silicon, LED product and showcases the combination of Plessey's MaGIC low cost, high efficiency, surface-emitting LEDs with unique modular optics representing, the company says, the next phase in LED lighting.

Dr. Keith Strickland, Plessey's CTO, said, "As part of our chip scale optics development we have developed a variety of solutions for beam control [directly] off the LED chip. This is an exciting development for LED modules and lighting designers. Getting light to where you need it is critical in industrial, retail, hospitality and outdoor lighting. Stellar provides lighting designers with the design freedom needed for lightweight, low profile, less bulky designs."

Stellar, the company adds, will permit lighting designers to improve the reliability and quality of light using its state-of-the-art LED light engine for most applications.


The introduction will be featured at the Frankfurt Light and Building exhibition, open until Friday 18th March. ( http://light-building.messefrankfurt.com/frankfurt/en/besucher/messebesuch/eintritt_fachbesucher.html)
