Press Release: Philips Lumileds Luxeon Flash power LED's
The functional flash market for camera phones was established less than three years ago when the company released its first generation Luxeon Flash making this product one of the most quickly adopted and dominant products in company history. Luxeon Flash LEDs are uniquely capable of providing the quality illumination for camera flash applications in 2Mp and higher camera phones as well as for video and flashlight applications that are being built into mobile handsets today.

“Prior to the introduction of Luxeon Flash, there were no solutions available that provided the illumination necessary to produce quality images in low light environments and users were limited to taking daytime pictures,” said Richard Weiss, V.P. Digital Imaging Business. “Only Luxeon Flash power LEDs provide the light output for video and still imaging without sacrificing battery life. Xenon can’t provide the sustained light output and requires significantly more space and high-voltage. And, low power LEDs can’t deliver the illumination needed for digital imaging.”

Philips Lumileds has proven high-volume production capabilities, is vertically integrated thereby minimizing supply chain risk, and has demonstrated the quality and reliability required for consumer applications. Technology innovation has allowed Luxeon Flash to more than triple its light output and efficacy in less than three years. Cell phones have rapidly become a primary digital imaging platform providing still image and video capability and as imaging systems improve, more light is required to deliver the resolution and quality that drive increased usage, transmission and customer satisfaction.

Philips Lumileds Lighting Company pioneered power LED technology and is the world’s leading provider of power LEDs for everyday lighting applications. The company’s recent records for light output, efficacy and thermal management are direct results of the ongoing commitment to advancing solid-state lighting technology and enabling lighting solutions that are more environmentally friendly, help reduce CO2 emissions, and reduce the need for power plant expansion. Philips Lumileds’ Luxeon LEDs are enabling never before possible applications in the automotive, camera flash, display, general lighting, and signage markets.
