Led Ray Data Now Available Online From OSRAM Opto Semiconductors

SANTA CLARA, CA--OSRAM Opto Semiconductors is the first LED manufacturer in the world to provide direct web access to the ray data files for its light emitting diodes. The ray files, which can be downloaded from
www.osram-os.com/ray-files, indicate the pattern in which light is emitted from an LED and include the coordinates of the emission point, the direction of emission, the intensity and the wavelength.

Visitors to OSRAM's ray files site can view specifications on most of the company's entire LED portfolio, including infrared emitter diodes (IREDs). "Our customers have access to all the latest data at any time of the day or night, so it is now even easier for them to plan their lighting systems, test the LEDs and produce their lighting concepts," said Wolfgang Lex, head of the LED Business Unit.

From www.osram-os.com/ray-files, one can immediately view and download all the ray data and a custom CAD model for board design (3D design and package), along with information on how to use this data, all without complicated navigation or a long list of supplementary questions to answer. Product information focuses on fine measurements and small distances so that external optics and light guides can be customized.

This online resource from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors means that access to semiconductor technology is no longer limited to LED specialists. "Our data on the internet also gives new customers a chance to develop LED solutions themselves without having to rely on external partners," Lex added.
