Samsung Introduces Several Leading-edge LED Components for Advanced Mobile Devices

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced component solutions, introduced a range of leading-edge LED component solutions today for use in advanced mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Samsung’s new LEDs for mobile devices include two reflector-integrated flash LED packages ─ the 3432 1.8t (FH341A) and 3432 1.4t (FH341B), plus a flip-chip flash LED 2016 (FH201A), as well as two side-view LEDs ─ the 3810 0.6t (MS062F) and 3810 0.8t (MS082F).

The new LED products will be showcased at the Mobile World Congress to be held at Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain, February 24-27 (Hall 2, Booth 2G40). Samsung will start mass producing the new mobile-market LEDs in March, which are likely to then begin appearing in the open market in the second quarter.

“Samsung is becoming an integrated LED component solutions provider that offers highly differentiated value to customers by producing outstanding LED component solutions which are shaping new directions in mobile devices,” said Bangwon Oh, senior vice president, LED strategic marketing team, Samsung Electronics.

With its long-standing expertise in the mobile industry as well as extensive investment in LED technology and manufacturing, Samsung has now secured a clear competitive edge in LED technology and components that meets the rapidly changing needs of the mobile industry.

Reflector-integrated flash LED for high-end mobile devices
Because high-quality smartphone cameras require a wider FOV (Field of View) angle for better picture quality, Samsung’s new reflector-integrated flash LEDs are designed to enable a great deal of flexibility by providing a wide FOV within a small space through the integration of a light source,  a lead frame, and a reflector with its own optics and diffusion features.

Of the latest LED mobile offerings, Samsung’s new reflector-integrated flash LED ─ the 3432 1.8t (FH341A) delivers over 165 lux at 1A and a minimum CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 80, assuring quality photos in daylight and at night. In recognition of such superb performance levels, the 3432 1.8t is expected to be used in leading-edge smartphones this year.

Also new to Samsung’s reflector-integrated flash LED line-up is the 3432 1.4t (FH341B), which is specifically designed for mobile OEMs seeking extra-slim LED solutions. The 3432 1.4t package includes a reflector and is only 1.4mm thick, a thickness ideal for smartphones and tablets thinner than 7mm. In addition, it provides a minimum illuminance level of 165 lux.

Standard flash LED with high light quality
Another addition to the Samsung mobile family, the new standard flash LED 2016 (FH201A) applies Samsung’s proprietary cell-film phosphor technology to flip-chip packages, which applies a thin film of phosphor to each package. Providing exceptional design flexibility, Samsung’s 2016 offers 220lm of light output and improves color deviation by approximately 40 percent compared to packages using Samsung's previous technology that dispensed phosphor on each chip. This more affordable LED solution also offers a high level of color quality, which is rare to traditional flash LED products. By introducing its first 2016-sized flash LED package, Samsung has further strengthened its mobile LED component line-up.

High brightness Side View LEDs

Other new LED packages for mobile applications are Samsung’s Side View LEDs ─ 3810 0.6t (MS062F) and 3810 0.8t (MS082F), which feature high color reproducibility, thanks to their high brightness levels. Samsung’s Side View LED packages are also power-efficient, operating on less than 2.9 volts.
Samsung’s 3810 0.6t provides 3.1cd, while coming in at a mere 0.6mm in z-height – ideal for slim smartphones and tablets. The 3810 0.8t offers more luminous intensity at 3.2cd, with a 0.8mm thickness, making it suitable for tablet and notebook PCs.
