Samsung Adds Advanced Color Quality Features to its CoB Solutions

Samsung Electronics introduced new color quality improvements for its small LES (light-emitting surface) chip-on-board (COB) package LC series, LC010, LC020 and LC040. The improvements are based on “Vivid” color technology that has been optimized for high color quality LED lighting especially in premium commercial lighting applications.

“With Samsung’s new small LES COB packages, LED luminaires can enjoy exceptionally high color quality and design flexibility,” said Jaewook Kwon, Vice President, LED Strategic Marketing Team, Samsung Electronics. “Samsung will continue to provide differentiated COB LED packages to lead the commercial LED lighting market.”

Samsung’s small LES LC series offers three alternatives: the LC010C with an operating wattage of 10 W and an LES diameter of 6 mm; the LC020C with 20 W and an 8 mm LES diameter; and the LC040C with 40 W and an 11 mm LES diameter.

The small LES LC series reduces the space required for the LES by 50 percent, while doubling center beam candle power (CBCP) over that of existing standard COB LED packages. (The CBCP measures the luminous intensity at the center of the beam of a directional lamp, in a unit of candelas.)

The improvement in the quality of light for the small LES LC series is enabled by Samsung’s Vivid color feature, which provides special color spectrums optimized for retail markets such as grocery and luxury goods stores. The Vivid color spectrums add more brilliance to displays of fresh meat and fruits, for example. Samsung’s small LES line-up also features high CRI levels – over 80, 90 and 95 CRI respectively. These improvements will help satisfy requirements for premium commercial lighting applications where color quality is a critical factor in lighting performance. 

In addition, Samsung flip chip and phosphor dispensing technologies were adopted to reduce the size of the LES throughout the LC series, in compliance with Zhaga Book 12. The small LES LC series can increase cost effectiveness by significantly reducing the size of key elements within a luminaire such as its optics, heat sink and holders. Also, they can be easily adapted to spotlight even at a narrow angle of between 15 and 25 degrees.

The newly improved small LES LC series will be mass produced beginning this month and is available in 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K, 4000 K, 5000 K and 5700 K CCTs.

Samsung will showcase its small LES LC series along with many other innovative Samsung technologies and LED component solutions at Booth #2511, LIGHTFAIR International being held in San Diego, USA from April 26th thru 28th.
