The vertically structured LED chip boasts higher light extraction, better optical efficiency, and more uniform beam profile than conventional square or rectangular LED chips based on sapphire or silicon substrates. The hexagonal architecture enables better current spreading control, for higher-current operation. Honeycomb chips can use same package flat form as square or rectangular chips.

Chemical chip separation is faster and easier than conventional laser scribing or dicing, according to Verticle, making the hexagonally shaped LED manufacturable beyond R&D quantities.

Main optical power range is 370-420mW at 350mA with a forward voltage range of 3.1-3.4V.

The mass production level Honeycomb chip will be introduced and available for sale at Guangzhou LED China 2012, February 20-23.
