Seoul Semiconductor has released a new LED product called “nPola” at 'So Gong Dong Plaza Hotel' in Jong Lo Gu, to an audience of the Korean LED industry and press on July 3rd.
According to the company, the unique patented technology rights have been under development by Seoul Semiconductor for over 10 years. The brightness has been dramatically improved by 5 times over the conventional LED based on equivalent die surface area. The company expects further improvements will increase this to more than 10 times existing LEDs.
Currently, the brightness of a power chip LED in mass production is around 100 lumens in warm white but this new product produces 500 lumens which is 5 times better. As an example, when making a LED bulb for a 60W household bulb replacement, generally, 10-20 LED packages are used, but when this new product is applied, the same brightness can be achieved with only 1-2 packages.
The company said it will immediately begin production of this new product with sales domestically and in strategic markets abroad.
