Dowa To Mass-produce High Output UV LEDs

280nm peak wavelength deep UV LEDs output 75 mW in 1mm x 1mm package

Dowa Electronics Materials has developed a deep ultraviolet LED chip it says features the industry's highest output power, with a peak wavelength of 280 nm, output of 75 mW and dimensions of 1 mm x 1 mm. The company will be mass-producing these new products, with capacity equivalent to one million LED chips per month.

Since deep ultraviolet lights with a wavelength of 280 nm have a high efficiency of disinfestation, replacing the conventional mercury lamps with these LEDs enables facilities to be smaller and mercury-free. With other advantages such as power saving, this product is expected to find new smart applications.

Combining an AlN template with crystal growth technology, Dowa Electronics Materials successfully began to mass-produce robust, deep ultraviolet LED chips in 2010. Its development of what it believes is the world's highest output power deep UV LED chip is thanks to better luminous efficiency applying improved crystal growth technology together with an optimised LED chip design of dimension and structure.

The new UV products may provide light source manufacturers with a greater flexibility for selection of package formats, such as lamps and chip-on-board (COB). Dowa will also supply some finished products such as various kinds of the surface mount device (SMD) and conventional TO-Can package.

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.
