Bridgelux Delivers New Lighting Solutions, Naturally

LDS Bridgelux natural 400

Nov 14, 2019

Bridgelux reinforced its focus and commitment to the lighting market with the commercial availability of Thrive surface mount device (SMD) 2835 and V Series chip-onboard (COB) parts. Thrive white point options are designed to closely match the spectra of natural light by reducing blue spikes and cyan valleys, and providing full spectrum, human centric LED lighting solutions.

The loss of natural light benefits affects those who spend most of their time indoors, with office workers being one of the groups especially at risk. According to Harvard Business Review, the “health benefits of access to natural light are causing some firms to re-imagine their workspace and tout this as a recruiting tool.”1 The lighting industry is moving beyond the efficacy race and towards human centric lighting solutions incorporating circadian elements that may impact well-being for anyone spending extended periods of time indoors.

First announced in March 2019, Thrive uses proprietary chip, phosphor and packaging technologies to deliver a close spectral match to natural light. The high-fidelity spectral output of Thrive creates stunning environments with excellent color rendering and outstanding TM-30 metrics. Unlike other high CRI light sources, Thrive has been engineered specifically to provide a close and continuous match to natural light across the visible wavelength range to enable the next wave of innovation in the lighting market: human centric lighting.

Thrive SMD 2835 1W 9V and V10C are now available for ordering. Additional SMD 2835 and V Series form factors will be available in late Q4 and early Q1 2020.

“Today’s announcement reflects our pledge to customers to deliver a clear path toward flexible, interoperable solutions to meet lighting requirements that demand natural-looking light, particularly projects in the office, education, healthcare, residential and retail markets,” said Dr. Brian Cumpston, Vice President of Solutions Development at Bridgelux. “We are a technology partner committed to delivering new LED light source solutions as our roadmap evolves, including an expansion of Thrive white options onto our Vesta® Series and EB Series™ tunable white light sources, and the expanding family of high efficacy SMD products.”

Bridgelux also announced performance upgrades to its SMD 2835 delivering up to 221 lumens/watt (lm/W), and to its SMD 4014, now delivering up to 190 lm/W, both in 4000K 80 CRI with a variety of 80 and 90 CRI color point options available. These highly efficient light sources are useful for a range of lighting applications including office, retail, residential and architectural lighting, further assisting customers to meet ever evolving regulatory based efficacy requirements.
