Seoul Semiconductor Launches ZC, a Chip-On-Board Type DC LED
The ZC Series is designed as a COB type and removes the need for the LED to be surface-mounted on to a metal plate, allowing manufacturers to bypass the chip connection process before use. Companies can trim manufacturing and management costs and greatly improve end product price competitiveness.
Furthermore the use of highly-reflective aluminum substrates in ZC also greatly improves the brightness and significantly prolongs LED bulb life spans. It is possible to use a single ZC from the ZC series to develop a LED light bulb which then allows light to be distributed more evenly than lights that connect several LED packages to a single module.
ZC will be offered in 6W, 10W and 16W, each of which will be appropriate replacements for 40W, 60W incandescent light bulbs and 100W down lights, respectively.
“The ZC will enable manufacturers to easily produce various LED light designs and providing longer-lasting LED lights,” explained Sunghoon Bae, Vice President of Seoul Semiconductor. “As with the recent release of our AC LED, Acrich 2, the launch of our DC LED, ZC, is aligned with Seoul Semiconductor’s commitment to providing a diverse and innovative product portfolio for consumers alongside continued investment in research and development”
The recently launched ZC Series will begin mass production in December and will subsequently be available to customers.
