Palo Alto, Calif. – Lattice Power, the first company to commercialize high performance, low cost GaN-on-Silicon LEDs, announced today that its new PAR38 LED lamp has been recognized by the Illuminating Engineering Society Progress Committee as providing an important advancement in lighting. The company’s new proprietary GaN-on-Silicon LED PAR38 LED lamp delivers outstanding efficacy, superior brightness and excellent color rendering.
Lattice Power has succeeded where many other companies have failed. Growing GaN material on a silicon substrate has been a vexing problem for the industry as a result of thematerial lattice mismatch and thermal expansion mismatch between GaN thin film and silicon substrate. These mismatches contribute to defects in the material, cracking on the wafer and poor quantum efficiency of the epi-layer.
By developing a series of proprietary technologies to overcome the mismatch problems, Lattice Power is able to manufacture high performance, consistent quality and extremely reliable LEDs. The company’s breakthrough GaN-based LEDs on silicon substrate offers exceptionally high light density and better thermal dissipation.
The company’s GaN-on-Silicon LED PAR38 lamp has the industry’s highest lumen output without active cooling—2000 lumens at 27W. An innovative thermal pipe heatsink provides efficient heat dissipation and eliminates the need for active cooling. Furthermore, the lamp has the highest power and lumen density from a single emitter LED and the lowest thermal resistance from an integrated package at 0.25C/W. The 27W PAR38 LED lamp is available in various color temperature.
As a vertically integrated company, LatticePower designs, engineers and manufactures the components in its lighting products, optimizing performance for commercial applications and reducing time to market at scale. All of Lattice Power’s products are certified to international standards for the general lighting market, including indoor and outdoor applications.
The IES Progress Report submittals, which consist of new products, applications, research, design tools, and publications, are reviewed by the IES Progress Committee, who is responsible for monitoring developments in the art and science of lighting worldwide. The committee is made up of lighting industry professionals who possess expertise in varied areas within the field. Each submittal goes through a comprehensive judging process and is evaluated for uniqueness, innovation and significance to the lighting industry.
