emitting diodes (LED) represent a
major shift in the way heat is transferred
from light sources. LEDs require thermal
management since greater than 90% of
the heat must be transferred by conduction.
With power densities approaching
5 W/mm2 thermal management is becoming
the #1 consideration in LED lighting
design. LED power density can reach
10X that of the latest microprocessor and
5X that of space shuttle re-entry. Without
proper thermal management LEDs suffer
decay in brightness, reduction in
time to failure, and color shift.
The design freedom of injection molding
allows heat transfer, enclosure, connector,
and assembly features to be incorporated in
one low cost injection molded part.
CoolPoly LED Series TCPs provide the best thermal
management and electrical isolation options for
general illumination LED lighting.
