Osram Opto Semiconductors has introduced a super-bright LED, the Diamond Dragon. The LED achieves brightness of up to 250 lumens and will be available in whites ranging from 2700K through 6500K as well as all monochromatic colors. The Diamond Dragon is ideal for indoor and outdoor general lighting, automotive forward and signal lighting, and other high performance applications. The exceptionally low thermal resistance of Rth = 2.5 K/W provided by the Diamond Dragon's SMT package allows heat produced in the chip to be efficiently removed from the LED package. The maximum junction temperature of 175-degrees Celsius makes these LEDs extremely robust and enables applications where the LED cannot be easily cooled.
