Sharp Corp Develops Two New Kinds of LED Devices
Aug 22 14
Sharp Corp. developed two kinds of LED devices that adjust color in accordance with brightness by using only one circuit system. The devices, "GW6NGWJCS0C" and "GW6TGBJC50C," are targeted at lighting apparatuses such as downlights and spotlights. The new LED devices developed by Sharp have two light sources that have different colors and are made by sealing an LED chip with two kinds of fluorescent plastics. By changing the output of each light source and mixing colors, the color temperature can be adjusted between 2,000 and 3,000K. In general, two circuit systems are necessary to control the outputs of two light sources. However, Sharp enabled to do it in accordance with brightness control only with one circuit system by applying its own current control technology. As a result, it became possible to simplify the circuit design of LED lamps and easily embed them in lighting apparatuses. Moreover, with a packaging technology called "Zenigata" (shape of a coin), it is possible to realize an LED optical design that has a small light source area and reduces the unevennesses of brightness and color. Furthermore, because of the high color rendering index (Ra) of 92-94, it is possible to reproduce the natural color of an object on which light is applied. Sharp will start to deliver samples Aug. 22, 2014, and begin volume production in September.
