Seoul Semiconductor, a world leading LED manufacturer(CEO Chung Hoon Lee, www.acriche.co.kr) said it would display its hi-quality LEDs in Lighting South Asia 2009 in Mumbai, India.
Lighting South Asia, held for the 7th this year, is the most famous Indian international lighting fair from 20th to 23rd. About 150 companies are expected to join this fair, and providing momentum to promote new lighting market in India and south Asia with various conference and light sources.
Seoul Semiconductor, as a sponsor and exhibitor for this conference, will show various LEDs including the AC-driven Acriche, the promising future innovative light source, P4 series, High CRI Top View LED, BLU LEDs for mobile and for automobile stop lamps.
In this event, Acriche is the main product of Seoul Semiconductor, and in the center of global attention. Acriche is directly operated at AC without converters. This feature clearly differentiates Acriche from almost all LEDs requiring converters to be operated at DC. This feature not only simplifies the circuit design of lightings and maximizes LED’s lifespan, 30k~40k hrs, by providing a solution for a problem with shortened LED’s lifetime by the converters with 10k~20k hrs lifespan.
Acriche is famous for its innovative technology in the global market. Last December Seoul Semiconductor’s Acriche has been awarded in Newtech Korea 2008 and named as Korea Ten Best New Technologies of 2008. was also named “Product of the Year” by Elektronik in 2006, one of the most prestigious electronics publications in Europe.
Seoul Semiconductor is preparing to introduce High CRI Top View LED, released last May, and ultra slim Z1 series. High CRI Top View LED has a CRI of 90, equivalent that of natural sunlight, and 0.2 W of power consumption with 70 lm/W of luminous efficacy and high reliability of over 50,000-hour-lifespan. The thin Z1 is being famously used for indoor-and-outdoor lighting fixtures and appliances.
A Seoul Semiconductor’s official said, ‘about USD 2,500m of lighting fixtures are imported. And the amount imported has been increased by 25~30% per annum. Furthermore, the low entry barrier for import and export and high economy growth rate are good opportunistic symbols for our increase in sales. And this participation in LSA will promote our sales activities.
