LEDLUM

Tiny Light Engine for Large Scale LED Lighting

 

Mission of LEDLUM:

LEDLUM develops a highly integrated very cost competitive light engine technology platform for Solid State Lighting (SSL) connected directly to the electrical power grid. LEDLUM proposes to develop for the first time an integrated system level solution for realising a highly miniaturised, efficient light engine.

 

Motivation:

By developing the world’s smallest Light Engine, LEDLUM establish Europe as the world leading innovator in SSL solutions. The new platform reduces size by 90%, material cost by more than 50% and losses by 20% compared to state-of-the-art solutions. Further LED-Drivers are the limiting factor for SSL Engines in reliability, lifetime and maintenance. The root cause is the electrolytic capacitor; whose removal is essential to increase the lifetime of LED drivers to match the LEDs (100.000 hrs). This is not practically possible with existing components and circuits, but combining the very high frequency (VHF=30-300MHz) technology with innovative energy-storage-concepts enable LEDLUM to achieve this. Based on this new VHFapproach LEDLUM uses embedding technology for both magnetic and capacitive components, hence enabling integration of light-source and driver/control-electronics on the same substrate.
