LED manufacturer Lumichip expands in Finland, opens development center

April 27, 2012 — Lumichip Limited, a light-emitting diode (LED) manufacturer, expanded its commercial operations in Finland and opened a new development center in Espoo, Finland. The new development and customer service center are at the Micronova Building, Otaniemi campus, part of the Finnish high technology development cluster in Espoo, where global technology companies and research institutions such as VTT and Aalto University operate.

“Lumichip has an increasing client base in Europe and Scandinavia,” noted Dr. Juha Rantala, chairman of the Lumichip group. Lumichip’s new global commercial service center will support all technical aspects and product sales for LED customers.

The company’s investments in Finland also include research, from basic LED component to advanced light engine technology design, and production of custom-designed LED light systems. “Our chip and package design and manufacturing will continue in Asia, but we wish to leverage the leading edge electronics and systems development expertise available in Finland into our new products and services,” Dr Rantala said.

Lumichip’s new European Micronova site is within the Finland National Research Infrastructure for micro- and nanotechnology and its modern facilities include 2600m2 of cleanrooms and processing lines for silicon CMOS, MEMS, III-V optoelectronics and various thin film devices. The available technologies and expertise of the center will be part of Lumichip’s technology roadmap for better LED devices and systems with intelligence, reliability and cost efficiency.
