DEKRA Opens Lab in China for LED Testing

Taiwan-based Integrated Service Technology (iST), a joint venture of German inspection company DEKRA, recently opened a new LED lighting lab in Shenzhen, China. The new lab meets the ever-growing demand for product testing and certifications within the local LED industry, providing one-stop services for China-based manufacturers. Aaron Lee, General Manager of iST and Jia Tian, R&D Director of Lumileds, attended the opening ceremony and gave remarks.

With the rapid growth of the LED industry, its multi-tier supply chain has comprised increasingly almost every aspect of the industry, including LED substrates, epitaxial wafers, chips, packaging and other LED applications.
However, as exports of LED products continue to increase and the market rapidly evolves, it is more difficult for companies to maintain a competitive advantage over their peers. In addition, as LED product range expands, verification requirements become more rigorous, which raises the standard on product quality. Thus, many LED manufactures who aim to deliver high-quality products have invested in increasing the reliability of their products to extend the product lifecycle.

iST specializes in the analysis on system failure cases and environmental reliability of electronic systems used in automotive, IT, telecommunication and LED lighting applications. The new lab in Shenzhen offers a complete range of product testing, such as testing services for LED chips, LED packaging and LED lighting fixtures, to the entire LED value chain. In addition, the lab provides one-stop services for local customers in the area of product safety, performance, power consumption and certification.

Along with the opening ceremony, iST also organized a seminar on testing and verification methods of automotive LEDs, bringing together over 100 manufactures and companies across the industry. This seminar served as a platform for business leaders and experts from iST to discuss verification criteria for new LED applications as well as international standards. It was a vivid seminar with intensive and fruitful exchange.
iST owns well-equipped laboratories in Taiwan with advanced technologies and highly skilled professionals, providing high quality LED testing services that are approved by EPA Energy Star and Lighting Facts and are in accordance with LM79 and LM80 standard. iST’s services are also adopted by several global manufacturers. With the opening of the Shenzhen lab and DEKRA’s global network, iST hopes to develop new business opportunities within the LED industry.
