THE EDGE by Future Electronics Features Nichia’s Breakthrough Optisolis White LEDs

Montreal, Canada – August 6, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is showcasing the revolutionary new Optisolis line of white LEDs from Nichia in the latest edition of THE EDGE.

The Optisolis family of white LEDs from Nichia delivers ultra-high Color Rendering Index (CRI) values. Their light output has the closest possible match to that of natural light, the result of the application of proprietary Nichia blue chip and phosphor technology.

Lighting equipment manufacturers can use Optisolis LEDs to enable artificial lighting schemes in which all colors appear almost exactly as they would under the light of the reference light source. And since ultraviolet emissions are almost non-existent in the Optisolis spectrum, degradation caused by irradiation is dramatically reduced compared to the damage caused by the UV emissions from other commercially available LEDs.

THE EDGE is the latest e-newsletter from Future Electronics, and is geared toward engineers and buyers looking for new or leading-edge products. THE EDGE comes out twice per month, and each edition features product information, datasheets and videos showcasing the most advanced new technology in a specific area, such as sensing, lighting, or automotive.
