Chip Scale Review | Tackling the thermal challenge chip-scale packaging creates for high-power LEDs

While chip-scale packaging (CSP) has been around since the 1990s (and in production since the early 2000s), the LED industry has only adopted CSP approaches in earnest within the last few years. Read the full artcile by our Applications Manager, Dr Giles Humpston in the Chip...

Thermal News: LEDs Under the Thumb

LEDs do two things really well. They emit light and heat, in roughly equal measures. The light is generally useful, the heat less so. Heat and LEDs do not make good bedfellows so when designing a solidstate light source, as much care needs to be taken in removing the heat as...

LEDs Magazine: LED thermal management – Predict and measure performance

When you work with LEDs day in, day out, it’s all too easy to forget that LEDs and their close cousin, the solid-state laser, are actually quite wondrous. Think about it: You can connect these tiny devices up to a battery and they produce light, and not just one type of...
