Lamina Ceramics (Booth #728) has launched a 13,300-lumen RGB LED array, generating light in more than 16 million colors, including white. The company is now accepting orders for delivery of the device during the second quarter of 2005.

According to Lamina, the 13,300 lumen, 860W RGB LED engine breaks a world record with 677 lumens per square inch of saturated colors. (The previous best-to-date array provided 100 lumens per square inch.) Featuring independently controlled channels for red, green, blue, or additive color mixing to produce white, it provides 4,600 lumens of red (at 210W), 7,600 lumens of green (at 320W), and 1,100 lumens of blue light (at 330W). Additionally, it features variable color temperatures ranging from 3,000 - 6,500ºK., with corresponding lumen output ranging from 6,500 - 9000.

The high light output is achieved through a proprietary multi-layer ceramic-on-metal packaging, providing an extremely high level of thermal management and interconnectivity between individual light-emitting diodes, designated “low temperature co-fired ceramic-on-metal” (LTCC-M). LTCC-M enables dense clustering of multiple LEDs to achieve high intensities in very small footprints: the array of LEDs comprising the light engine is round and 5 inches in diameter.

LTCC-M technology has emerged from years of research and development in the Sarnoff laboratories, the same labs that developed inventions such as color television and key technologies used in cell phones, laptops, watches, today's high definition television (HDTV), and satellite TV technology, to name a few. Lamina is the exclusive licensee of Sarnoff's 12 years of research into LTCC-M.

With outputs ranging from 8 to 2000 lumens (and passively cooled), lower intensity light engines are available in a variety of customizable configurations from 7.3 by 8.4 mm (delivering from 8 to 45 lumens) to 26.7 by 31.8 mm (delivering from 162 to 2000 lumens). Wattages range from 1 to 100 in colors including white, amber, red, blue, green, and RGB.
