Application Guide: Thermal Measurement Guidelines for LEDs

One of the most critical design parameters in an LED illumination system is the system’s ability to draw heat away from the LED package. High operating temperatures at the LED junction adversely affect the performance of the LED, resulting in color shifts and decreased light output and lifetime for the LED package. Therefore, monitoring the LED function temperature is paramount for the overall system performance.
