Corsair Capellix LED tech ups the ante with a much lower footprint

Posted on Tuesday, January 08 2019 @ 13:52:25 CET by

Corsair cooked up Capellix LED technology, a new RGB LED technique that promises various advantages over the typically used SMD LEDs. The new Capellix LEDs strip away the package layer of the diode, and bring the substrate layer directly in touch with the PCB.

This lowers the required volume from 2.8mm³ per SMD LED to just 0.2mm³, and makes it a lot easier to integrate the LEDs in compact devices.

Besides the lower footprint, Capellix also promises to be up to 60 percent brighter, up to 60 percent more efficient, up to 40 percent lower power draw, and up to 35 percent higher service life than SMD LED.

The company will adopt Capellix across its full line of RGB LED products. The first product shown at CES 2019 is 2019 Dominator Platinum RGB. These modules will feature 12 individually addressable Capellix aRGB LEDs. You can expect them in February 2019.
A silicone diffuser puts out light from these diodes through slits along the sides and top of the modules. The LEDs are fully compatible with Corsair iCUE software, in addition to pretty much any addressable-RGB software. The modules themselves feature hand-binned DRAM chips, cooled by die-cast, micro-arc oxidized anodized aluminium heatspreaders.
