The low-profile rectangular shape of the new Synios E4014 from Osram Opto Semiconductors (Sunnyvale, CA) enables the light from this LED to be injected into light guides so that a wide range of design ideas can be realized. The mid-power light emitting diodes also have a robust plastic package and a uniform distribution of light. The LEDs are intended primarily for visually enhancing white goods such as appliances and for lighting systems in vehicles and displays.

The extremely low height of the Synios – only 0.57 mm – and its tiny footprint of 4 x 1.4 mm provide the ideal solution for low-profile, elongated luminaires and lighting designs, including display backlighting. The LEDs do not have a lens so they can easily be used for injecting light into light guides. The new E4014 opens up a whole range of design-oriented lighting solutions, such as integration in the glass shelving in refrigerators and other white goods, car interior lighting, and strip lighting on the floors of buses and trains.

"White goods appliances are not typically known for their premium lighting design. The new Synios is ideal for enhancing the look of household appliances and for meeting the more demanding requirements of enhanced lighting design. For lighting tasks at a lower performance level, we already offer the Topled E3014 in our portfolio," said Gary Schneider, Program Manager at Osram Opto Semiconductors.

The color temperatures of Synios are between 4,000 and 5,000 K and can be tailored perfectly to the particular application. The robust plastic package is one of the benefits of the new Synios LED, in addition to the extremely uniform distribution of light, high efficiency, excellent flexibility and long life of around 50,000 hours.
