Default ANN: LED Luminosity Breakthrough



13 November 2003.

Announcement: Press release embargo until 15 November 2003.

Light Emitting Diode (LED) Intensification Breakthrough in New Zealand
laboratory.

Using ultra-small electronic componentry to intensify (make brighter)the
ubiquitous LED, the LED output can be increased by up to four times without
blowing them up as would be expected when you shove too much voltage into
them. The Free Electron laboratory technicians in Lower Hutt, North Island,
New Zealand have developed a device to intensify LED's by overpowering and
cooling LED's to make an otherwise mediocre LED shine furiously bright.

Given the headlong rush to more Lumens per Watt and the wide range of
applications that LED's lend themselves to, it is surprising that such
an add-on component has not, before today, been developed. The LED
Accelerator brings a solution to bear upon the problem of otherwise poor LED
luminosity performance. At an increasing rate LED's are being used in
industry, transport, home and personal lighting, security, communications,
toys and consumer electronics, the future is bright then, for a company
that will manufacture and distribute the LED Accelerator.

In the next few days it is expected that rights to the device will be
auctioned by eBay and at other auction sites in Europe, and Australasia.

Default ANN: LED Luminosity Breakthrough

Time to update information for detractors, supporters and other souls kind
enough to provide feedback herein:

The circuit does not change the colour of the LED.

Most LEDs do not operate at 100% duty - brake lights for example, life
reduction expectancy therefore UP TO 30%.

The circuit does not directly influence the efficiency of the LED, it just
allows a higher voltage to be safely applied to the LED.

In this incantation the circuit is designed for arrays of LED's, such as
traffic lights, indicators and tail lights. It's use will be more
applicable, therefore, to interior lighting, automotive, traffic and
industrial applications.

The low power version sinks 1 Amp, and the power device <4 Amps - which is a
huge output so far as LED applications are involved. At the four Amp rating
8 devices could easily power aircraft runway lights.

-------------------------------

A typo on the website has been fixed.

Thankyou for suggestions insofar as Lumileds and Luxeon are concerned.

Do please post on-topic communiques to this NG rather than posting emails as
is the want in NG culture.

An announcement will be issued shortly as to auctioning the rights to
use/manufacture the device.

Yours faithfully

Peter E. Lowrie.
