Sharp Introduces Nine High Color Rendering LED Lighting Devices in Two Package Styles

Sharp will introduce nine new LED lighting devices, including SMD chip LEDs suitable for planar lighting fixtures and Zenigata LED devices ideal for use in spot lighting and bulb-shaped lamps. Sharp has developed a series of new High Color Rendering LED lighting devices in two package styles. The SMD (surface mount device) chip LEDs are based on a proprietary double molded structure adopted for use in the LED backlights of Sharp Aquos LCD TVs. Zenigata LED devices are now more compact with approximately half (56%) the surface area of previous models, and provide easy drop-in integration into lighting fixtures and equipment.

With LED rapidly replacing conventional lighting products, more and more people are demanding LED lighting capable of depicting illuminated objects such as foods or flowers with colors close to those perceived under natural light.
