PerkinElmer signs white LED component agreement with Osram to expand medical lighting range

PerkinElmer : 12 February, 2008  (New Product)
PerkinElmer Optoelectronics has entered into a license agreement with Osram to enable PerkinElmer to access Osram white light emitting diode (LED) patents for the manufacture of LED components.
Osram is one of the leading lighting manufacturers in the world, offering its customers solutions based on semiconductor technology for lighting, sensor and visualisation applications.

Under the terms of the license, PerkinElmer gains non-exclusive, royalty bearing rights to Osram patents for the manufacture of white LED components for use in a variety of lighting solutions. White LEDs offer an attractive alternative to existing lamp technologies such as Halogen MR16 lamps and Cold Cathode Fluorescent lamps (CCFL) due to their higher efficiencies and longer lifetimes at attractive costs.

“Securing this important license allows PerkinElmer to add white LEDs to its range of current and future LED offerings,” said Dr Michael Kramer, managing director LED Solutions. “We look forward to innovating with these ‘green,' environmentally-efficient white LED technologies in our continued efforts to provide the most advanced lighting solutions to the medical lighting industry, as well as other markets including architectural lighting, decorative and mood lighting.”

PerkinElmer plans to incorporate white LEDs into its successful ACULED platform based on chip-on-board (COB) technology. The result will be to expand the company's LED portfolio which includes high power, high efficiency standard white LED products under the brand name ACULED VHL (Very High Lumen) as well as custom combinations that include white chips under the ACULED DYO (design-your-own) brand name.
