Description: 

Philips Lumileds Lighting Company is a manufacturer of high-power LEDs and a pioneer in the use of solid-state lighting solutions for everyday purposes including automotive lighting, computer displays, LCD televisions, signage and signaling and general lighting. The company's patented LUXEON® Power Light Sources combine the brightness of conventional lighting with the advantages of LEDs.

Lumileds began as the optoelectronics division in Hewlett-Packard (HP). In 1999 HP split its company into two, and the optoelectronics group was assigned to the new Agilent Technologies. In November of the same year, Agilent Technologies and Philips formed Lumileds and in 2005 Philips acquired Agilent's share of Lumileds.

Philips Lumileds holds a patent for auantum dot white and colored light emitting diodes published in 2005.
