LedEngin, Inc. Announces Production Release of Far Red High Power LED Products

Santa Clara, CA - August 27, 2009. LedEngin, Inc. today announced the addition of Far Red products to its high power LED product portfolio for horticultural applications. The Far Red 740nm LED provides record radiometric power up to 400mW in a compact 4.4 mm x 4.4 mm package with exceptional radiant flux density for LED grow lights.

LedEngin Far Red LEDs add to the current portfolio of Red (635nm), Deep Red (660nm) and Blue (460nm) LEDs for horticultural grow lights. The Far Red wavelength simulates seasonal effects and the onset of sunrise/sunset to prolong perceived daylight. This product completes the family of desired wavelengths in the plant absorption spectrum of light believed to enhance plant growth. LED grow lights allow customers to optimize the light to promote accelerated and predictable plant growth while realizing high energy efficiency compared to traditional horticulture lamp sources.

LedEngin proprietary packaging technology and advanced material developments enable a high quality, robust light source with industry leading reliability. LedEngin's LEDs are engineered to optimize light extraction, minimize stress and maximize thermal performance resulting in exceptional reliability, wavelength stability and radiant power maintenance. The robust packaging allows the LED to meet JEDEC Level 1 Moisture Sensitivity Levels for unlimited product floor life. The combination of high power density and high moisture resistance will enable the development of new horticulture fixtures which capitalize on the energy efficiency, robustness, and long lasting benefits of LEDs.

"We are very excited about the addition of Far Red high power LEDs to our product portfolio," said Uwe Thomas, Director of Technical Marketing at LedEngin. "Our new Far Red products combined with our Red, Deep Red, and Blue LEDs provide a complete LED solution for our horticulture customers. No company can offer the full range of high power horticultural LED wavelengths in a common package configuration. We look forward to supporting our customers in their design-in activities for this unique alternative to conventional light sources," added Thomas.

Immediate product availability of 5W LEDs with other configurations possible.
