Permlight Products Inc., a provider of LED lighting solutions and power supplies for indoor and outdoor applications, has entered into an exclusive strategic relationship with Ceramics Process Systems Corp. (CPS), to jointly develop semiconductor-based lighting systems utilizing the latter's advanced composite metal matrix material heatsinks.

CPS' metal matrix composite heatsink technology combines silicon carbide and other high thermal conductivity materials, including pyrolytic graphite with aluminum, to create application specific heatsinks that have higher thermal conductivity than most conventional metals.

"We expect that the relationship with CPS will greatly accelerate our plan to commercialize our LED lighting systems in more than just sign applications," commented Manuel Lynch, president and CEO of Permlight. "By using their advanced thermal control techniques we are confident we can introduce new products that will offer customers choices of pushing the brightness envelope by driving the same number of LEDs at much higher power or maintaining current levels of brightness but significantly reducing cost by using fewer LEDs at higher power levels."
