Seoul Semiconductor Achieves 180 lm/W and Cuts Cost 50% with New Mid-Power LEDs

Seoul Semiconductor, a global LED manufacturer, has announced two new mid-power packaged LED lighting products, the 5630C and the 3030. These packaged LEDs have been improved dramatically in terms of luminance efficacy (lm/w) and cost efficiency (lm/$). The 5630 mid-power packaged LED efficacy is now 180 lm/W which is world class performance for solid state lighting. The 3030 mid-power LED reaches cost points 50% lower than existing high-power packaged LEDs.

The 5630 package is the world's best performance in light output with 180 lm/W efficacy and is an extension of the mid-power LED lighting family that Seoul Semiconductor released as one of the first mid-power LEDs in the world for solid state lighting products. When it was released, the performance was better than existing high-power packaged LEDs. In the past 2 years, it became the best selling item among Seoul's product portfolio. The new 5630C is targeting the high growth segment of LED lighting including bulbs, tubes and panel lights in the US, Japan, and Europe.

The new 3030 LED being introduced extends the Seoul mid-power offering up to the high-power one watt range by enhancing both the LED chip and package in terms of heat resistance. Even though traditional 3030 packaged LEDs were mid-power, the new versions can be used in high power applications with the additional benefit of reducing costs by up to 50%.

Marten Willemsen, Vice President of Marketing for Seoul Semiconductor, said, "The 3030 and 5630 packages are LED products which focus on both price competitiveness (lm/$) and luminance efficiency (lm/W). We have already sold billions of pieces in China, USA, and Europe for various LED lighting products." He added, "If you use these two LEDs properly, you can chase two rabbits at the same time in terms of 'lm/W' and 'lm/$' which most lighting designers consider the most important factors."

The products are in mass production and are globally available now through Seoul Semiconductor's Distributors.
