Arrow Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with Intematix Corporation to deliver ChromaLit remote phosphor components for high-quality LED lighting. Remote phosphor is a disruptive trend in LED lighting system design that creates opportunities for lighting customers and partners to generate competitive advantage in their markets. Several new LED lighting system manufacturers have adopted ChromaLit in their designs including light bulbs and area lighting and have lowered costs of production and increased performance.
Compared to conventional LED designs, where blue chips are coated with a phosphor compound, ChromaLit uses a phosphor composite separated from the blue LED energy source. This architecture provides reduced system costs, more efficient manufacturing processes, improved light quality and up to 30 percent higher system efficacy.
“Intematix ChromaLit remote phosphor is a critical addition to our LED portfolio,” said Eric Williams, vice president of global lighting for Arrow Electronics.
“Intematix’s distribution business with Arrow allows us to serve a larger slice of the lighting market,” said Steve Barlow, chief commercial officer at Intematix. “Arrow will provide Intematix with access to additional blue LED and associated products, enhancing our joint market expansion. This distribution agreement further enables well-supported solutions to customers in need of remote phosphor lighting.”
