Seoul Semiconductor Expands Market Share In Global Automotive Lighting Market

First Korean LED manufacturer to pass GM reliability tests

Seoul Semiconductor has announced the release of new LED packages for the automotive lighting segment to further strengthen its presence in automotive LED lighting.

Since 2011 Seoul Semiconductor has developed efficient and reliable LED packages for the automotive lighting market and has supplied LEDs for headlamps to global auto makers. Seoul Semiconductor's 14 LED packages specifically designed for automotive applications have passed reliability tests at General Motors earlier this year. SSC is the first Korean company with LEDs that conform to GM's reliability standards and its LED packages have been used in various GM vehicles.

 

 Seoul Semiconductor's automotive LEDs (Z3) have been applied to the headlamps of GM's Cadillac ELR

Lae-hyun, Kim, the vice-president of the automotive business division says, "LEDs for automotive applications have to meet strict certification standards for reliability, lumen output and efficiency set by automobile manufacturers in Europe, U.S and Japan. Seoul Semiconductor is already recognized for its performance and now the sales revenue for its automotive LEDs continues to grow".



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.
