  • Patent number: 11732865
    Abstract: An LED module includes a heat sink. The heat sink has a mounting surface that defines, with respect to ambient light incident thereon, one main direction of a beam perpendicular to the mounting surface and secondary directions of the beam inclined to the main direction of the beam at angles having absolute values smaller than or equal to 90 degrees. The heat sink also has a reflection surface oriented such that, with respect to the ambient light incident on thereon, a main direction of the beam of the reflection surface is perpendicular to the reflection surface and points in a direction included in the angle range determined by the main direction of the beam of the mounting surface and the secondary directions of the beam of the mounting surface. The LED module further includes an LED light source on the mounting face and pigments on the reflection surface.

  • Patent number: 11274819
    Abstract: A support for light-emitting elements is disclosed. The support comprises a mounting section comprising at least one mounting face. The at least one mounting face has an arrangement direction and is configured to accommodate at least one light-emitting element along the arrangement direction. The support comprises a body section adjacent to the mounting section and having a length that extends parallel to the arrangement direction. The body section protrudes sidewards from the at least one mounting face. The support comprises a plurality of conductors connecting the body section to the at least one mounting face. Each contact section corresponds to a conductor. The plurality of conductors are a layered structure of conductors. An extension direction of the layered structure of the conductors extends substantially perpendicular to the arrangement direction of the at least one mounting face. The layered structure of conductors comprises an angled section.

  • Patent number: 11266017
    Abstract: A lighting device, a method of manufacturing a lighting device and a support are described. A support includes a layered structure of alternating conductors and insulating layers. The layered structure includes a mounting section and a body section adjacent the mounting section. The mounting section includes at least one mounting face that has an arrangement direction and at least three alternating contact sections along the arrangement direction. Each contact section is electrically coupled to one of the conductors and separated from a neighboring one of the contact sections by one of the insulating layers. The body section has a width that protrudes sidewards from the at least one mounting face and a length that extends substantially parallel to the arrangement direction.

  • Patent number: 10999936
    Abstract: A method for applying at least one electronic component to a surface is described. The method includes placing a component stencil on a support. At least one electronic component is arranged in a corresponding opening of the component stencil with a top surface of the electronic component on the support. A contact material stencil is positioned on the component stencil such that at least one opening in the contact material stencil is over a corresponding contact region on the bottom surface of the at least one electronic component. A contact material is applied on the at least one contact region of the at least one electronic component within the corresponding opening of the contact material stencil. The contact material stencil is removed from the component stencil. The component stencil is removed from the support. The at least one electronic component is applied to the surface.
