LEDagon reference system accelerates solid-state lighting designs

LEDagon will be able to provide companies with an opportunity to implement product ideas quickly and economically working with leading suppliers. Arrow, Cree, Haeusermann and Kathrein Austria have formed a partnership that offers a complete spectrum of technologies and services to meet all needs, ranging from design support, through the integration of state-of-the-art technologies, to assembly and component procurement.

LEDagon is based on HSMtec, a copper/FR4 printed circuit board technology developed by Haeusermann. It enables optimised thermal management for High-Power LEDs and arrays, high current capabilities and multidimensional PCB structures for individual lighting- and product-design.LEDagon also adds intelligent control electronics featuring a microcontroller and Xlamp high-performance LEDs from Cree that enable new application areas for LED lighting. Parameters, including position, direction, brightness and temperature, can all be managed via the sensor-based controller. Capacitive buttons and sliders on the housing can be used for setting different operating modes. A seven-segment display shows the current operating mode. Software updates can be downloaded via a mini USB 2.0 interface. A Windows host application is integrated that allows the user to control the system remotely, analyse results or install firmware updates. Energy supply is via a standard DC power supply.

Haeusermann, Kathrein Austria and Arrow will exhibit the LEDagon LED reference lighting system at Light+Building, Frankfurt, 15-20 April 2012.
