OSRAM Opto Semiconductors: Trend Setter in New White Binning for High Quality White LEDs


Santa Clara, CA (February 11, 2008) - OSRAM introduces new, advanced fine binning for white LEDs and delivers significant improvements in off-angle color uniformity as well as a typical color rendering index (CRI) of 80+. OSRAM Opto Semiconductors' LEDs offer the right products for high-quality lighting solutions. This advanced binning process for white LEDs corresponds to a 3-step McAdams ellipse and is available for Power TOPLED®, Advanced Power TOPLED® and our DRAGON® family of products.

Lighting applications will benefit from finest white binning in the industry.

Lighting applications such as backlighting of diffused surfaces and linear array applications will benefit from the uniform light enabled by this new breakthrough technology, now available in a broad product portfolio, which is fully
ANSI/Energy Star-compliant in the United States.

High color rendering is important for workplace, residential and retail lighting. OSRAM's improved CRI of 80+ for warm and neutral whites will enhance applications throughout the lighting industry. With OSRAM's new fine white binning, it is now easier and potentially more cost-effective to build lighting applications with the highest requirements in uniformity.
