Bridgelux is the first, new US-based light-emitting diode (LED) chip company in the past 20 years. The Company’s focus is bringing innovation to light by providing high power, energy-efficient and cost-effective LED solutions. Bridgelux actively supports its customers by delivering value-added, application-specific solutions that will open up new markets in solid-state lighting (SSL). Customers leverage Bridgelux’s technology to replace traditional lamp and luminaire technologies (such as incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lighting solutions) with solid-state products that provide high performance and energy-efficient white light for general lighting applications. Bridgelux’s current and future-generation products support global clean energy initiatives by reducing energy consumption and offering environmentally friendly solutions.

Bridgelux drives its LED chip technology development with the goal of delivering the most cost effective and highest quality lighting solutions. This is achieved by focusing both on efficacy, measured in lumens per watt (LPW) and reducing system cost. Bridgelux maintains an active focus on both of these key drivers in all product development activities, keeping the end application requirements in mind to drive development efforts.

With its latest product introduction, the Bridgelux LED Arrays, the Company believes that these products will play an enabling role in breaking through existing cost barriers, which are currently slowing the adoption of SSL. The family of LED Array products specifically addresses the quantity of light, energy efficiency, color rendering (CRI), targeted lighting color temperatures (CCT), color consistency, beam uniformity and cost. These features will allow lamp and luminaire manufacturers to easily integrate the light sources into their designs—resulting in high performance, environmentally friendly LED-based lighting products that can displace conventional products for use in hospitality, commercial and “always-on” environments.

Bridgelux has a unique vertical integration strategy, which allows the Company to control its core technologies, drive product performance and technical innovation—increasing company value and accelerating revenue growth by delivering high quality light sources at a disruptive price.

Bridgelux is a VantagePoint cleantech portfolio company, and a chrysalix portfolio company.
