Revolutionary Innovation from Luminus: World’s First Round LED

Big Chip Round LEDs boost system-level throughput and efficiency, opening new markets to solid-state lighting

Luminus Devices, Inc.,announced today it will be releasing a family of round LEDs that will accelerate the adoption of solid-state technology by displacing conventional light sources in high brightness lighting applications.

“Optical architectures of high power entertainment fixtures are frequently defined by a circular aperture, so using a traditional square LED was like putting a square peg into a round hole,” said Don McDaniel, Global Marketing Director for Entertainment Lighting at Luminus. “Our new round LED increases system-level efficiency by as much as 30%, enabling our customers to use a single LED to replace a 250W HID lamp.”

Other markets and applications that will benefit from Luminus’ round LED technology include medical, machine vision, portable and retail spot lighting. “There are obvious benefits to fiber coupled lighting systems,” explained Chuck DeMilo, Global Director of Product Marketing, Lighting Business Group, at Luminus. “The fiber is round, the optic is round, but the LED has always been square – it was an optical mismatch. This has now been resolved with the round LED breakthrough that will enable us to replace the 300W Xenon lamp in an application like endoscopy.”


According to Luminus President and CEO Keith T.S. Ward, “We made a decision to invest significantly in R&D and operational infrastructure to revolutionize LED lighting– making the round LED concept a reality. The importance of this innovation can’t be overstated, and our customers are extremely excited.”
