Application Note AN30 – Thermal Management for Bridgelux Vero LED Arrays

The Bridgelux family of Vero Array products delivers high performance, compact, and cost-effective solidstate lighting solutions to serve the general lighting market. These products combine the higher efficiency, lifetime, and reliability benefits of LEDs with the light output levels of many conventional lighting sources. 

Optimizing performance and reliability of a lighting system using Bridgelux Vero Series LED Arrays requires careful consideration of thermal management solutions, handling and assembly, selection of electronic drivers and selection of secondary optics. Application Notes AN30, AN31, AN32 and AN36 respectively deal with each of these topics in depth. To achieve optimal performance of the LED Arrays, proper thermal management must be selected or designed.

The purpose of this application note is to assist and provide guidance to luminaire designers in the area of thermal management and component selection for use with Bridgelux Vero LED Arrays. This application note provides relevant electrical and thermal characteristics of the Vero LED Arrays, relationship between electrical power and heating power, a review of the fundamentals of heat transfer, design rules and recommendations for best thermal management of Vero LED Arrays, and discussion about the key components used for thermal management.
