Everlight Opens Automotive Factory In Taiwan

New factory will achieve production capacity up to 200KK per month 


LED company Everlight Electronics has opened a new factory in Taiwan dedicated to automotive products. The Miaoli Tongluo New Factory is the result of investments of more than $300 million.

Everlight started to expand its automotive activities in 2014. Today, the company owns a comprehensive portfolio of automotive products for  interior/exterior vehicle applications. 

All products are sulphur-resistant and passed the corrosive gases test for H2S, SO2, CL2 and NO2, etc, according to the company. Thus the caveats against LED products which failed the sulphur-resistance test, in terms of brightness, colour coordinates, voltage and function failure, etc, can be effectively reduced.

The factory combines human factor engineering and automation AOI that clearly divide warehousing and production. This concept takes care of the connection routes between upstairs and downstairs at the same time. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) was introduced to aid the MES (manufacturing execution system) in process control. All products will  be engraved with as laser code before die bonding, for the convenience of tracking the in-process and post-process status of the product.

Everlight says that the design of the factory has allowed it to lessen manpower, effectively reduce the logistic processes, maximise the production efficiency, and achieve a production capacity up to 200KK per month while at the same time pursuing high quality.  

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
