LUXEON® K2 LEDs, the newest generation of high-power LEDS from Philips Lumileds Lighting
Company, won the New Product Showcase Award at Lightfair International 2006 in Las Vegas. Judges
consisting of a panel of lighting professionals honored LUXEON® K2 in the specialty lamp category in a
competition focusing on the most innovative products in the lighting industry.
The LUXEON® K2 family earned the award for a series of technology breakthroughs that are paving the
way for the development of solid-state luminaires with more useable light, reduced thermal management
engineering, simpler manufacturing and lower cost. These capabilities stem from die and packaging
advancements that set new industry benchmarks for light output, temperature tolerance and drive current.
New industry-leading performance thresholds set by LUXEON® K2 include a 140-lumen or higher light
output in white, a 185°C maximum junction temperature, a maximum 1500mA drive current, and a
JEDEC Level 2a rating for moisture tolerance. These and other features enable development of brighter
LED-based lighting products, lower the cost per lumen, reduce the cost of system thermal design, and
yield other benefits that promise to expand the market for solid-state lighting applications.
“LUXEON® K2 marks a turning point in the use of LEDs in general lighting, and the Lightfair judges
clearly recognized that,” said Doug Silkwood, VP Marketing of Philips Lumileds. “With the technology
that underlies our newest LUXEON® light source, lighting designers and engineers can take full
advantage of the longer life, smaller footprint and energy efficiency of LEDs to produce a wide range of
new products that will change the way people light their homes, offices and buildings of all kinds.”
