The Acrich MJT family of LEDs from Seoul Semiconductor reaches 210lm/W
Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd has announced that its Acrich MJT 5630D package, applicable to incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps, and other lamps, have reached the world's best luminous efficiency of 210 lm/W, which the company says is the highest luminous efficiency set across the world for single LED package.
Seoul Semiconductor has provided 5630 LED packages (5.6 mm wide x 3.0 mm long) for application in the lighting and IT fields. The currently-launched MJT 5630D+ LED package's most distinctive characteristic is the upgrade of its luminous efficiency to the world's best level of 210lm/W by using the LED chips that contain the multi junction technology (MJT: Multi Junction Technology) owned by Seoul Semiconductor.
According to the SSL Plan (Solid-State-Lighting R&D Plan) released in May 2015 by the US Department of Energy (DOE), the LED is likely to take up 40 percent of the US lighting market that includes fluorescent lamps and halogen lamps by 2020 . In addition, it forecasted that by 2030, more than 88 percent of the lighting equipment will be replaced by LED, thus, leading the energy saving trend.
Mr. Ki-bum Nam, CTO of Seoul Semiconductor, said, "The Acrich driving technology and Acrich MJT technology emphasized by the US DOE are the next generation LED technologies which would lead the future LED market". He added that, "We will further prove our distinctive technology by achieving the luminous efficiency of LED package of 220lm/W within a year, the US DOE's target achievement by 2020."
