Toshiba Reveals Ultra-small Chip White LEDs

The compact scale GaN-on-silicon package is claimed to reduce mounting area by 90 percent
Toshiba Corporation has announced the launch of ultra-small chip scale package white LEDs for lighting applications.

The company claims the device can reduce the mounting area by 90 percent compared to conventional 3.0 x 1.4 mm package products. This is according to a Toshiba survey.

The new TL1WK series will start sample shipment from April.


The new products utilise GaN-on-silicon process technology and a new process technology that fabricates the elements of a packaged LED on an 8-inch silicon wafer. The LEDs are claimed to be the industry’s smallest in sub-watt class (1/4-1/2W) white LEDs as of a March 27th, 2014 Toshiba survey.

The package size is 0.65 x 0.65mm, and the  LED achieves a luminous efficacy of 130lm/W during 60mA operation and superior heat dissipation. Using the new white LEDs makes it possible to achieve a narrow beam in small-size lighting equipments and can contribute to innovation in lighting design.

The new white LEDs will be showcased at “Light+Building", a trade fair for lighting and architecture in Frankfurt, Germany from March 30th to April 4th.

Applications of the LED includes light sources for general lighting, including straight tube lights, light bulbs and ceiling lights.

The colour temperature is 5000K, the colour rendering Index (Ra) is 80 (Min) while the forward current is 180mA (Max).

Colour variations under planning for 4000K, 3000K and  2700K.


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.
