Poing, (PresseBox) - SILICA, an Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT) company, now helps solid-state luminaire manufacturers reduce the cost and complexity of manufacturing high-performance LED lighting, minimise inventory and develop new products faster.

Sharp INTERMO LED modules, now in stock at SILICA, simplify inventory by combining three LED lighting components in one: a chip-on-board (CoB) emitter, holder and thermal interface. Solderless assembly means plug-and-play simplicity: manufacturers simply attach the module to its heat sink by two screws and push-fit electrical connections. The integrated thermal interface material (TIM) eliminates adhesives and grease, cutting manufacturing time and creating a low thermal-resistance path from the module to the heat sink. Sharp's effective thermal management process then results in a module operating life of 50,000 hours.

INTERMO modules come in two sizes: standard 50mm diameter x 6mm high and slim 44m x 3.6mm for space-constrained applications. They are available with attachment systems for Carclo, Ledil, Ledlink and Khatod relectors. Standard modules have a Zhaga Book 3 form factor, making it easy to upgrade existing luminaires conforming to this specification. The modules' compact CoB emitters are particularly effective for collimating narrow, high-flux beams in spotlights and down lights.

INTERMO modules are available with colour temperatures of 3000K or 4000K, CRI 80 or 90 to ensure natural colour rendering, and light flux categories of 3000lm, 4000lm or 5000lm. Lighting consistency between modules is guaranteed to within 3 MacAdam ellipses.
