Tyntek Ends Investment in Alpha Plus Epi, Shifts Chip Manufacturing to China

Taiwanese LED package manufacturer Tyntek has ended investment in LED upstream chip manufacturer Alpha Plus Epi Inc (Alpha Plus Epi) with an estimated recognized loss of NT $1 billion (US $33.4 million) for 2013. The company however does not plan to completely back out of the LED chip market. Instead, the company is shifting focus from the Taiwan market to China. Tyntek through a joint venture with Fujian Electronics & Information established Fujian Prima Optoelectronics in 2010. This new epitaxy factory is projected to begin mass production in 2H14.

TYNTEK launched K-mark certified LED bicycle headlamp

TYNTEK Applied Product Division introduced a very bright 3W single LED headlamp. It achieves 40Lux from 10meters away. The lamp meets German bicycle headlamp regulation and it is K-Mark certified. TYNTEK's Optical Center designed the reflector which creates relatively sharp horizontal cutoff line. The light pattern is cut off to the top of the beam to keep focused light out of the eyes of oncoming drivers. To be simple, beam is brightest at the top getting progressively dimmer towards the bottom just like a high quality automobile low beam.
