Crystal IS Introduces Partner Distribution Channel

Crystal IS, a developer of UVC LEDs, has introduced the Optan distribution channel. The first five distribution partners will carry select bins of Optan for specific geographic locales. These partners and corresponding geographic regions are: Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM) and Opto Science in Asia Pacific (APAC); Epigap Optronic GmbH and Pacer International for Europe; and Thorlabs handling North America.

Crystal IS say that Optan is the breakthrough product that allows developers to fully exploit the power of UV-based technology to improve productivity, increase accuracy and create greater flexibility in product designs. The superior light output and spectral quality of the Optan UVC LED technology, made possible by the unique, low defect AIN substrate, delivers best-in-class reliability, and longer lifetimes, a game changer for life sciences and analytical instrumentation, including environmental monitoring.

"In addition to delivery, we wanted to be sure Crystal IS distributors offered a full complement of services to customers needing to select a light source for their instrumentation needs," said Larry Felton, CEO of Crystal IS. "To that end, our partner selection process carefully reviewed capabilities in consultation and services in optical systems."

Distribution partners will offer Optan to customers and prospects looking for state-of-the-art light sources for many different instrumentation applications including:

  HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) for purification of proteins and pharmaceutical manufacturing
  Real-time monitoring applications for water quality in drinking water and industrial waste-water
  Ozone monitoring for detection of harmful pollutants

The Optan LEDs are currently available in peak wavelengths from 250 nm to 280 nm and power bins from 0.5 mW to 2 mW, designed for spectroscopic applications because of their high spectral quality and reliability.

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.
