Growth in LED Lighting

TECHNOLOGY DISRUPTION:

HAITZ LAW: LEDs had been doubling in brightness every 18 months since they were first commercialized and there is every expectation that this trend will accelerate

*LED Market penetration in the signage industry has grown from 3% in 2002 to 14% in 2006

Advantages of LED Lighting

  • Low-Voltage (12 or 24 VDC Systems)

    • Reduces Wiring requirements, Safety – fire / shock

  • High Luminous Efficiency (up to 130 Lumens /Watt)

    • Most efficient lighting available

  • Reduced heat vs. Incandescent (reduces AC Load)

  • Contains no mercury or lead glass (vs. fluorescent / neon) – ROHS Compliant

  • Long Life (30,000-100,000 hours to the ½ life)

    • Reduces maintenance costs and environmental waste

  • RGB options for color changing and other effect lighting

  • Reduced breakage

  • Varying beam angles (i.e. directional) allowing for efficient use of light

High-brightness LED components Micro-electronic LED packaging Segmented and alphanumeric micro-displays



Slide7 l.jpg

New Products

  • New Series of Architectural Lighting Products for Commercial & Residential Applications

  • LED Under-cabinet Lighting

  • LED Downlights

  • LED Fixtures to replace higher-end fluorescent fixtures

  • Transition to LED technology is beginning to be legislatively driven:

  • Mercury Added Neon banned in Vermont in 2007

  • 2010: Australia to ban incandescent bulbs

  • 2012: Canada and California to ban incandescent bulbs

  • Similar initiatives driving other markets towards LEDs


Slide8 l.jpg

Agilight – Micro-LED Technology

  • AgiLight´s NanoFlex are the world’s smallest LED lighting packages

  • Beyond the current products, Nan flex offers enormous growth possibilities to build a multi-billion dollar solid-state-lighting holding company

  • The immediate next focus is the high-security smartcard (credit card/ health card)

  • In addition, the technology will be the platform for other huge market opportunities: Flexible Displays, backlighting for ultra-thin handheld electronics, illuminated fabric, lighting for automotive/ aviation


Slide9 l.jpg

Technology Advantage

  • Key Technical Advantages:

  • Large tangential bonding area (rugged and flexible)

  • Thinnest possible means to produce and LED package (200% smaller)

  • LCP substrate: high temperature processing

  • Precision stamping and laser ablation (reliability)

  • Only way to achieve 360 degree emission pattern (enhanced light output)

  • Excellent thermal transfer for high flux applications

  • Amenable to automated manufacturing processes


Slide10 l.jpg

Strategic Roadmap - Technology Holding

  • Strategic focus on large volume vertical markets for Nan Flex LED

  • 4 key vertical markets:

    • Flexible Displays and Smart Cards / Smart Labels* (1st Product offering and initial focus)

    • Accent and General Lighting

    • Industrial and Printed Circuit Board Products

    • Automotive & Aviation

  • Leverage existing sales/marketing infrastructure to deliver products directly to the lighting and industrial markets

  • Be an OEM partner for the Smart Card industries and PCB; strategic partnerships with established distribution channels

  • Already, AgiLight has a number of letters of intent / support outlining specific product and manufacturing requirements based on the NanoFlex solution (Advantage: we make what we have sold!)


Slide11 l.jpg

Smart Card:

Competitive Advantage

  • Exceeds all ISO standards for credit card thickness and flexibility

  • Integrated keypad input for security

  • Multiple output: Magstripe, IR, Smart Card contact, Contactless RFID

  • Flexible battery that provides up to 3 years of life

  • Preferred LED display technology

    • Emissive: Visible day or night and at any viewing angle

    • Readily multiplexed

    • Low voltage, no need for additional drivers or chip sets

    • Environmentally friendly: no mercury and ROHS compliant

  • Coplanar (Micro-site) packaging of all electronics (ultra-thin / flexible)

  • Display and electronics integrated onto a common flex circuit

  • Single microprocessor required to operate both the display and card

  • Leverages readily available manufacturing processes and equipment

  • Capable of fingerprint authentication (future)


Slide12 l.jpg

Summary

  • Example of a successful green energy start-up

  • (that’s actually making money)

  • The growing signage/lighting business will be complemented by the entry into the micro-LED and smart card business.

  • Technology path and products are clearly defined and achievable

  • Believe strongly we can grow AgiLight into a billion dollar green LED holding company
