JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, the developer of standards for the microelectronics industry, has announced the publication of a new series of standards for component level testing of high-brightness/power LEDs.

JEDEC's JC-15 Committee has introduced the new JESD51-5x series of standards aimed at thermal characterisation of power LED components. The series is in compliance with the International Commission on Illumination (CIE)'s existing LED measurement recommendations. JESD51-50, 51, 52 and 53 are all available for free download via the JEDEC website.

According to JEDEC, the standards include clear recommendations for which data to include on LED data sheets, as well as test environments and procedures defined specifically for power LEDs, removing previously existing ambiguity about how thermal performance of an LED package or a metal core printed circuit board (MCPCB) assembled LED device is identified.

"Clear guidelines for the thermal testing of LEDs were needed, and the publication of JESD51-50, 51, 52 and 53 is the result of quick action by industry leaders and JEDEC's JC-15 Committee," John Kelly, JEDEC President noted.

The new standards will be featured in a presentation at the upcoming CORM (Council for Optical Radiation Measurements) 2012 event on May 31st in Ottawa, Canada.
