Seoul Semiconductor Launches ZC, a Chip-On-Board Type DC LED

Seoul Semiconductor, a Korean LED packaging company launched its Chip-On-Board (COB) Type of Direct Current (DC) LED, named ZC (Z-Power COB). ZC series, developed based on Seoul Semiconductor’s Z-Power LEDs which are mainly used as a light source of high-brightness and high-power, decreases thermal resistance, resulting in an exponential improvement in LED lighting product life expectancy. Moreover, it allows manufacturers to conveniently install and design price competitive products.

The ZC Series is designed as a COB type and removes the need for the LED to be surface-mounted on to a metal plate, allowing manufacturers to bypass the chip connection process before use. Companies can trim manufacturing and management costs and greatly improve end product price competitiveness.

Furthermore the use of highly-reflective aluminum substrates in ZC also greatly improves the brightness and significantly prolongs LED bulb life spans. It is possible to use a single ZC from the ZC series to develop a LED light bulb which then allows light to be distributed more evenly than lights that connect several LED packages to a single module.

SSC's ZC-series will be offered in 6W, 10W and 16W, each of which will be appropriate replacements for 40W, 60W incandescent light bulbs and 100W down lights, respectively.

“The ZC will enable manufacturers to easily produce various LED light designs and providing longer-lasting LED lights,” explained Sunghoon Bae, Vice President of Seoul Semiconductor. “As with the recent release of our AC LED, Acrich 2, the launch of our DC LED, ZC, is aligned with Seoul Semiconductor’s commitment to providing a diverse and innovative product portfolio for consumers alongside continued investment in research and development”

The recently launched ZC Series will begin mass production in December and will subsequently be available to customers.

About Seoul Semiconductor:
According to LED market reports issued by IMS Research in the U.K. and Strategies Unlimited in the U.S., SEOUL SEMICONDUCTOR is the world’s fourth largest LED supplier, holding more than 5,500 patents. In particular, it owns a wide range of LED technology and production capacity in areas such as deep UV LEDs and non-polar LEDs, as well as Acriche, the worlds first commercially-produced AC LED. At present, it provides high-quality LED products through 33 overseas branches (including three local corporations) and 150 domestic agencies and distributors.
