Seoul Semi AC LED Module Reaches New Heights

The firm's latest Acrich2 module saves energy by up to 50 percent and improves compatibility with Triac dimmers
Seoul Semiconductor has announced that its latest Acrich2, AC LED module, which performs at 100 lm/watt  is now available for volume production.

Acrich2 provides lighting designers with a high efficacy light source which also has a high power factor, and improved Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) performance.

In traditional solid state lighting solutions, additional components and costs are required to provide an offline driver solution with acceptable dimming performance. Seoul Semi says its Acrich2 solution can save about $2 over these traditional solutions. 

The new AC module also provides a DC dimming interface that allows the designer to easily integrate new dimming functions such as touch sensor and WIFI control dimming.

The Power Factor improvement which is up to 0.99, will also save costs in electricity. Conventional LED lighting products have lower Power Factors starting at 0.5 but mostly in the 0.7 to 0.8 range.

Seoul Semi says this Acrich2 AC LED module will help the performance of the power grid.

Seoul Semi’s Acrich operates effectively due to its ‘Integrated Multi-cell’ technology, which has been developed by the firm for over 10 years. As a result of this research, Acrich operates on both alternating current and direct current. What's more, it tolerates a wide range of voltages.

4W to 16W Acrich2 AC module are available now and the firm's production line is ready to manufacture large quantity orders.Customised Acrich2 solutions are also available.

According to the LED market reports issued by Strategies Unlimited in the U.S., Seoul Semiconductor is the world’s fifth largest LED supplier, holding more than 10,000 patents.

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.
