These two LED chipmakers had announced record-breaking research results for their LEDs, with values as high as 155 lm and 140 lm/W for white LEDs made using 1 mm2 chips and driven at 350 mA.
These results are important. More than the values themselves, the results indicate the continued progress being made by LED manufacturers.
Innovation is also happening in the labs of other companies that haven’t made recent announcements. And, perhaps most importantly, many of the technology enhancements that have resulted in these higher numbers will eventually move across to the next generation of production devices.
Watch this space — when these devices arrive, Driving Vision News will tell you all about them.
