Luminus Devices Inc has announced a global distribution agreement enabling Mouser Electronics Inc of Mansfield, Texas, to bring Luminus LEDs quickly and efficiently to lighting design engineers and buyers around the world.
The agreement should speed to market what are alleged to be the industry's only big-chip LEDs.
According to Mouser, Luminus patented big-chip LEDs are among the brightest and most versatile solid-state light sources available, enabling the creation of innovative new products and applications.
"Demand for the solid-state lighting industry's only large-footprint LED has grown rapidly in the past 12–24 months," commented Jim Hunter, Luminus vice president and general manager of global commercial markets.
"Mouser is uniquely qualified to help Luminus meet this demand head on."
"Big-chip LEDs provide Mouser's customers with a new, long-lasting, solid-state lighting solution that is ideally suited for future innovative products currently in the research and design phase."
Elsewhere, Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg, Germany, has announced that its OSLON SSL LEDs have been installed in solar-powered street lamps in Ningxia, a central province in China.
LED street lighting is replacing traditional lighting fixtures because they can be applied in various weather conditions, the firm said.
