Solid State Supplies adds multi-die custom LEDs from LED Engin
Adding to its lighting technology, Solid State Supplies now offers customised LED emitter arrays from LED Engin (a division of Osram Specialty Lighting).
For certain optoelectronic applications, such as scientific instrumentation, horticulture and machine imaging, engineers need more than off-the-shelf emitters to avoid the use of multiple discrete components in order to meet specific spectral requirements. This course has the disadvantage that it will significantly increase the board space utilised or bring about compromises in overall performance, advises Solid State Supplies. By using custom solutions that combine LEDs at the die level, it is possible to avoid the issues introduced by employing discrete LEDs, which ensures markedly smaller form factors and that stronger performance benchmarks are maintained, adds the distributor.
Through its supply chain partnership with LED Engin, Solid State Supplies is able to offer a broad range of standard devices that can be drawn upon to create custom configurations – including its LZ1, LZ4, LZ7, LZC and LZP options. By mixing and matching emitters from these ranges (covering wavelengths all the way from 365 to 940nm), highly optimised custom die configurations can be implemented. These can be housed within four, seven, 12 and 25 die packages. Custom optics, including flat and dome lenses, are also available if needed.
Solid State Supplies provides detailed pre- and post-sales technical support. This includes use its in-house developed simulation tool, that allows the custom design to be modified iteratively before going to assembly.
Solid State Supplies supports UK electronic equipment designers and manufacturers with products focused on two main areas: embedded processing and connectivity (wired and wireless), and power semiconductors and modules. Solid State Supplies says it represents a limited number of suppliers in order to provide outstanding technical and commercial support. These suppliers include leading global brands and smaller niche companies that offer products with exceptional performance in specific applications.
Customers are in military and aerospace, industrial and medical electronic equipment markets.
