LEDs are current driven devices, and their drive current has a positive coloration with luminous output. There are numerous ways to drive LEDs, such as direct or pulsed current. Simple or cost sensitive applications may employ current limiting resistors while more complex power management circuits may employ linear or switching regulators. Dimming and color mixing can be achieved through specialized integrated circuit packages or even micro-controllers which enable more customization.
All LED technologies produce heat as a byproduct. Although this cannot be avoided, it can be managed. This is important consideration in any good design, since thermal energy is detrimental and plays a key role in LED performance, lifespan, and reliability. The thermal energy originates from the junction within the LED die and is proportional to the drive current. The energy will radiate out of the LED package and into the circuit board. From there it may be transferred to a secondary heat sink before finally dissipating into the surrounding air.
Photometrics relates to the measurement of visible light. LEDs succeed in producing white light by combining multiple electromagnetic wavelengths. The properties of white light are characterized by color temperature or more specifically, chromaticity coordinates. Properly specifying these values becomes a critical aspect of the ordering process when purchasing from an LED manufacturer, as well as evaluating a specific manufactures yield and binning capabilities. Colored LEDs emit over a narrow bandwidth but color mixing can produce an infinite number of photometric possibilities based on application specifics.
Beam geometry offers precise control of photometric properties, allowing light to be dispersed as needed based on specific applications. Most often, a secondary optic is installed over the LED to narrow or focus the beam and target surface illumination or intensity specifications. Optic design specifications generally target a specific lumen rating for illumination applications, intensity rating for relative flux, or illuminance rating for surface area illumination.
