NIKKISO Establishes New Production Facility for Deep Ultraviolet LEDs

NIKKISO CO. has announced that it is establishing a new factory in Japan. The company will initiate production operations in mid 2014 and install an annual capacity in excess of 1 million units for its UVB and UVC LED illumination sources.

NIKKISO Deep UV LED Package

NIKKISO will introduce its new deep UV LED product line for the first time in North America at the SPIE Photonics West exhibition in San Francisco February 4 - 6, 2014, Booth 4918. The company will exhibit products featuring wavelengths from 255 to 350 nm, including several power levels and package types to enable important applications in a wide variety of areas. Among those with immediate demand are surface curing of resins and inks, biomedical instrumentation, dermatology, air purification, and water and surface sterilization.

NIKKISO’s proprietary AlGaN semiconductor technology enables the world’s highest performance, power and efficiency, with industry-leading reliability in the UVB and UVC regions. NIKKISO UVB and UVC LEDs offer substantial advantages over UV lamps including mercury-free operation, compact and lightweight form factor, flexible emission wavelength, directional illumination, instantaneous analog power control via current modulation, and low-voltage operation. Power levels up to 40mW per package are available, with customized multichip assemblies capable of emitting more than 1W. The devices can be utilized in stand-alone light sources, or integrated seamlessly as OEM components into end customers’ final product solutions.

With production technology that enables mass manufacturing on a commercial basis, NIKKISO’s new factory is located in Japan’s Ishikawa Prefecture with a total floor area of 1500 m2. It includes new epitaxial equipment, wafer fabrication, and clean room facilities for volume manufacturing of deep UV LEDs. The production facility represents a $22 million investment in NIKKISO’s deep UV LED business, and will ensure the stable supply of top-quality deep UV LED products to Nikkiso’s partners, thereby accelerating the development of deep-UV LED applications.
