The demand for more versatility, greater luminous efficiency and more driving power only increases thermal management concerns as light output and color quality are inversely proportional to junction temperatures. Therefore, understanding the thermal characteristics within these devices is imperative to producing more reliable products that are in compliance with industry and consumer standards.

Our team of simulation specialists have years of experience in extracting the design insight from diverse lighting applications to empower more innovative design solutions and address even the most challenging performance goals.

“Leveraging the IDP, now Rand Simulation, team not only gave us insight into the thermal performance of our Star Mini-Bar LED light, but they also provided design ideas and guidance for reducing LED junction temperatures helping to ensure the design would perform within Class 1 SAE specification. The insight gained from the partnership gave us the additional confidence we needed in the design before committing to final tooling.”
