High Power Point Source White Led NVSx219AWe rolled out a better idea
Tokushima, Japan, November 2nd, 2010 - Nichia today announces the release of a new line of high power point source white LEDs that drives the cutting edge technology of power LEDs to a new level. Code named under Nichia part number “NVSx219A”, or “Nichia 219“, this line of high intensity point source LEDs offers unprecedented luminous efficacy, source brightness, a compact footprint, and superior color quality. It enables interior and exterior general illumination applications where directional, volumetric lighting is desired.
Nichia 219 white LED offers typical 140 lumen output at 1 W input power with 5,000 K color temperature. Using a uniformly phosphor coated chip, Nichia 219 has the industry leading source brightness and tightest optical footprint. The spatial color uniformity is also optimized with Nichia’s leading phosphor technology. At 350 mA drive current, the typical forward voltage is only 3.0 V. Additionally, this package is capable of drive currents up to 1.5 A.
Nichia intends the 219 white LED to be Energy Star® compliant. This includes ANSI standard chromaticity binning, full color temperature selections, high CRI performance, LM-80 test data, and other relevant certifications. To enhance the delivered lumen output under thermally stabilized conditions, Nichia engineers have drastically improved the lumen maintenance at higher junction temperatures.
To make Nichia 219 user friendly, Nichia has incorporated an electrically isolated heat sink in the LED design, and lowered the junction to board thermal resistance, while minimizing the package size to a mere 3.5 mm x 3.5 mm. The symmetrical package shape with a dome lens makes it perfect for secondary optical and mechanical designs.
Nichia 219 white LED packages samples are available in limited quantities. For production quantity lead times, please contact your Nichia LED sales representative or the nearest Nichia sales office. For general inquires, please visit www.nichia.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
