Osram Ostar Projection P2W
Osram Opto Semiconductors has introduced two new high-power versions of the Osram Ostar Projection for projectors with a brightness of up to 1700 lumen. The Osram Ostar Projection LEDs offer high luminous flux from the available chip surface. Between 1000 and 8300 lumen can be produced depending on the color and the LED version. An antireflex coated glass cover instead of the usual lens, together with external optics, ensures that the light is well bundled, the vendor said. The two new LEDs can be used in office projectors with brightness levels of up to 1700 lumen. At the heart of the product is a 2-square millimeter LED high-current chip based on thin-film and UX:3 technologies. The two LED versions contain two (P1W) or four chips (P2W) with a total luminous area of 4- and 8-square millimeter, respectively. The two new Osram Ostar Projection LEDs will be premiered at the 2014 International CES. Volume production is due to start in March, Osram said.

Lextar to debut latest plug-in COB
Taiwan-based LED firm Lextar has announced its latest plug-in COB, Core series. Lextar will formally unveil the new product from June 9-12 at the 2013 Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition. The Core series is optical mechanical integrated and delivers high lumen output, Lextar said. Its plug-and-play connector brings additional savings to customers from reduced costs of luminaires, since conventional soldering process was replaced with mechanically designed connector that allows Core to be connected in series. Core series is also applicable to omni-directional bulbs when equipped with designated lens for wider beam angle. As high as 1,500 lumen can be delivered within less than 1cm diameter, giving an unrivaled lumen per area of over 60% advancement. The product has an efficiency of 125 lm/W. Lextar expects Core series to be mass produced in the second quarter of this year.
