Progress on LED efficiency faster than expected

Nichia has developed a white LED chip with 100-lumens/watt efficiency, the top end of the sweetspot in order to compete with fluorescent lights. Such a level was not executed until between 2008 – 2010. Sampling will start in June 2006 with mass production by the end of the year in the form of a 5-mm diameter lamp package.
