PhilipsPhilips Lumileds Luxeon Flash Technology : Philips Lumileds Lighting Company, the leading provider of mobile phone camera flash LEDs, working with image sensor manufacturers and handset manufacturers, has demonstrated Luxeon Flash performance that exceeds any phone-based Xenon flash performance. With light output of 1.0 lux sec. at 3 meters, compared to 0.67 lux sec. for a Xenon solution, Luxeon Flash LED technology delivers the light for high quality imaging. Philips Lumileds flash technology will help move cell phone camera image capture capabilities closer to those of digital still cameras. Functional LED flash technology first introduced by Lumileds in 2004 continues to improve as the company makes technology advances.

"We continue to work with carriers and handset manufacturers and image sensor providers on the next generation of cell phone imaging devices," said Julian Carey, Product Manager. "With Luxeon Flash LEDs, illumination of 30 lux or better at 2 meters and beyond is already enabling superior image capture capability for users. The extremely small size and low voltage requirements compared to Xenon solutions make Luxeon Flash an easier and more efficient solution and maximizes overall performance and battery life of the camera phone."

Philips Lumileds - Color variation
Luxeon Flash LEDs combine the industry's highest light output with patented technology that delivers uniform white light from the flash device. "With Luxeon Flash, it's possible to deliver images that have consistent color resolution across the entire image," said Julian Carey. "Other white LEDs introduce color variation that lowers image quality. As the image sensors get better, this variance will be more noticeable." Lumileds' Luxeon Flash LEDs are available as a surface mount LED or as a module with a lens to simplify engineering. Built in Electro Static Discharge (ESD) protection and Lumileds proprietary phosphor coating technology ensure the quality and consistency of the light, which is critical for superior imaging.
