Seoul Semi`s mid-power LEDs achieve 180 lm/W and halve costs
The company believes its latest III-nitride LEDs offer world class performance for solid state lighting
Seoul Semiconductor has launched two new mid-power packaged LED lighting products, the 5630C and the 3030. These packaged LEDs have been improved dramatically in terms of luminance efficacy (lm/w) and cost efficiency (lm/$).
5630 packaged LED
The 5630 package offers 180 lm/W efficacy at 60mA in the 5000K CCT range. It is an extension of the mid-power LED lighting family that Seoul Semi released as one of the first ever mid-power LEDs for solid state lighting products.
When it was released, the performance of the 5630 LED was better than existing high-power packaged LEDs. In the past 2 years, it became the best selling item among Seoul's product portfolio. The new 5630C is targeting the high growth segment of LED lighting including bulbs, tubes and panel lights in the US, Japan, and Europe.
3030 packaged LED
The newly introduced 3030 LED extends the Seoul mid-power LED portfolio and offers up to the high-power one watt (1W) range. This performance was achieved by enhancing both the LED chip and package in terms of thermal resistance. Even though traditional 3030 packaged LEDs were mid-power, the new versions can be used in high power applications with the additional benefit of reducing costs by more than 50 percent over 1W high power LEDs.
Marten Willemsen, Vice President of Marketing for Seoul Semiconductor, says, "The 3030 and 5630 packages are LED products which focus on both price competitiveness (lm/$) and luminance efficiency (lm/W). We have already sold billions of pieces in China, USA, and Europe for various LED lighting products."
He adds, "If you use these two LEDs properly, you can chase two rabbits at the same time in terms of 'lm/W' and 'lm/$' which most lighting designers consider the most important factors."
