SemiLEDs Introduces the New I-core™ LED Chips

SemiLEDs is proud to announce the introduction of the new I-core™ (IC) LED, an innovative new chip that will be featured in SemiLEDs’ ultra high bright LED product portfolio.The release of the IC™ from SemiLEDs, a world leader in developing LED technology, demonstrates its commitment to creating customer focused, forward thinking solutions. The IC™ is the first product released in the I-core™ series of LEDs from SemiLEDs which are designed to provide further improvements in brightness, reliability and overall efficiency.

The I-core™ LED features a sleek new design with new electrodes convenient for wire bonding. The advantages of the IC™ LED are realized in improved reliability which is delivered through the optimization of stress management for the chip at high current operation. The IC™ LED is not only more reliable, but significantly brighter as the creative robust design of the IC™ LED results in significantly improved light extraction. The advantages of the IC™ LED are further emphasized through SemiLEDs’ patented and proprietary MvpLED™ chip technology which features a vertical structure with a copper alloy base for thermal dissipation effectiveness. The results of the IC™ LED have been impressive as an optimized white light package, 40 mil I-core™ chip can deliver 120 lm/W, a significant improvement over its previous version.

SemiLEDs plans to make the IC™ LED available in its ultra high bright chip portfolio in blue (white), UV and green. For more information on the new I-core™ LED or for information on any of SemiLEDs’ products please visit www.semileds.com or contact sales@semileds.com.
