Seoul Semiconductor Updates Acrich2 and Achieves Highest Efficacy in an AC LED Module

Seoul Semiconductor, a leading LED manufacturer, has announced that its latest Acrich2, AC LED module, is now available for volume production orders with 100 lm/watt performance. Acrich2 provides lighting designers a light source with high efficacy, outstanding Power Factor, and improved Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) performance.

In traditional Solid State Lighting solutions, additional components and costs are required to provide an offline driver solution with acceptable dimming performance.  The Acrich2 solution can save about $2.00 over these traditional solutions.  The Acrich2 AC module also provides a DC dimming interface that allows the designer to easily integrate new dimming functions such as Touch Sensor and WIFI control dimming.

The Power Factor improvement, to as high as 0.99, will benefit electric providers by saving electricity cost. Conventional LED Lighting products have lower Power Factors from 0.5 and mostly in a range from 0.70 to 0.80. Seoul Semiconductor’s Acrich2 AC LED module with high Power Factor helps the performance of the power grid.

Seoul Semi’s critical technology for Acrich is ‘Integrated Multi-cell’ technology. Acrich operates effectively due to its integrated multi-cell technology. Seoul Semiconductor has focused on researching multi-cell technology for over 10years. As a result of this research, Acrich operates both alternating current and direct current. More so, it tolerates a wide range of voltages.
4W to 16W Acrich2 AC module are available now. Our production line is ready to produce large quantity orders. As a customer demands for various Acrich2 solutions, customized modules are also available.
