Lumileds - Philip's Luxeon Rebel

from PSFK Trend: PSFK by Piers Fawkes A new micro-LCD light system that Philips have developed. At just 3mm by 4.5mm, the Luxeon Rebel delivers 80 lumens per watt which makes it just about the most efficient light source around. The small size reduces the manufacturing costs and the size of the circuit board helps it fit in fixtures that are 50% slimmer. It is also colour balanced in warm, neutral or cool white so it will look good in the home. “LUXEON Rebel will cause a rapid change in solid-state lighting design,” said David Eastley, Product Manager. “LUXEON Rebel takes advantage of our latest chip, phosphor and packaging technologies to accelerate the use of LEDs in a wide range of lighting applications, particularly residential and other ‘white lighting’ applications for which LED options have been limited.”
