SemiLEDs Launches EF FlipChip LED Series; Enhanced Flip Chip Approach Maximizes Lumen Density and Simplifies Integration
August 22, 2014
CHUNAN, Taiwan, Aug. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SemiLEDs Corporation (Nasdaq:LEDS), a global provider of vertical LED technology solutions, today announced sampling and volume availability of the first in its new Enhanced FlipChip, or EF, LED series. The series launches with the EF-B40, a blue 40-mil flip chip that simplifies the packaging and integration process by eliminating wire-bonding while increasing both lumen-density and decreasing the lumen-per-dollar value proposition while enabling packagers to use standard surface mount assembly techniques. Regarding the technical advantages of the EF Series, Mark Tuttle, General Manager for SemiLEDs Optoelectronics Co., Ltd., explained, "SemiLEDs' unique flip chip approach combines a sapphire front surface and proprietary back side architecture that provides the electrical contacts exclusively on the bottom of the chip, making it fully compatible with chip-on-board (COB) surface mount processes. Eliminating wire-bonds also lowers the profile of the chips, and allows them to be placed more closely together, which results in higher lumen-density and reduces the complexity of the optics. The EF series is an ideal platform for COB assemblies, or really for any approach that calls for either secondary optic design or high-density mounting."
