Osram Opto Introduces Mini LEDs For Mobile Devices
Chip-sized Ceramos C range is targeted at flash applications in the thinnest smartphones and tablets
Osram Opto Semiconductors is expanding its existing portfolio for flash applications with a tiny LED product featuring a specially developed chip sized package (CSP).
The new Ceramos generation no longer has the conventional ceramic package and bond wiring of its predecessors. Instead it uses a CSP platform (chip sized package) specially developed by Osram Opto Semiconductors. This ensures that the entire chip surface is uniformly illuminated and that there is virtually no loss of light.
Also Ceramos C has a smaller footprint: Measuring 1.4 mm x 1.4 mm x 0.21 mm, it is three times shallower than its predecessor but produces the same brightness despite its smaller package size. This gives designers greater freedom.
Ceramos C is suitable for use in smartphones or tablets that need a compact LED particularly for the front camera, but also for the main flash and for the flashlight function. With a typical colour rendering index greater than 80, the LED is said to offer natural colours no matter where it is used. Ceramos C has a luminous flux of 260 lm and a colour temperature of 4,500 K.
“With our new Ceramos C, it will be even easier to take great pictures and selfies. The excellent illumination enables even absolute beginners to get fabulous results", said Fiona Mak, marketing manager at Osram Opto Semiconductors. “Despite its small size, Ceramos C is extremely powerful and a real bonus for end customers. Our Ceramos C fits perfectly with the trend for miniaturisation because it’s small enough to be easily installed in even the thinnest smartphones and tablets."
