Innovation and Simplification:Curable Phosphor PSA Films Developed by FLORY Materials for CSP LED Manufacturing

 Curable Phosphor PSA Films designed for CSP LED high-volume manufacturing were successfully developed and mass-produced by FLORY Optoelectronic Materials Company in Suzhou of China after years of innovation and optimization. The pressure-sensitive nature of this Phosphor Film (PF) eliminates the usage of an extra-layer of PSA in between the phosphor sheet and the CSP chip (Figure 1). The use of Curable Phosphor PSA Films can significantly simplify the CSP packaging process, enhance reliability, improve yields and productivity, and reduce the cost of ownership. In addition, curable and thermally conductive silicone pastes T02-01 with excellent gap filling and high conductivity were successfully developed as well at FLORY Materials.

Plessey Integrates Optics into GaN-on-Silicon CSP LEDs

Plessey announced that it has developed a patented technology for Chip Scale Optics (CSO) based on its award winning GaN-on-Silicon MaGIC ™ LEDs.  Chip Scale Optics permits design of light emission angles down to ten degrees direct from the LED.  Having the primary optics on-chip eliminates the cost of primary optics typically found in packaged LEDs and chip-on-board modules.  Furthermore, it significantly lowers the cost and provides for far greater design freedom for secondary optics within a luminaire.  The first off applications include retail spot lighting, hospitality lighting, high and low bays, street lighting and stadium lighting.  It is estimated that Plessey’s chip scale optics will halve the cost of these lighting applications.
