Combines SemiLEDs’ flip chip and ReadyMount™ technologies for innovative white-chip solution

December 10, 2014–Chunan, Taiwan– SemiLEDs Corporation (NASDAQ: LEDS), a global provider of vertical LED technology solutions, today announced that EDN has named SemiLEDs’ newest line of white chip scale packages, the ReadyMount™ Enhanced Chip Scale Package (CSP), or EC series, one of EDN’s “Hot 100 Products of 2014.” The 2014 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry’s most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity.

The ReadyMount™ Enhanced CSP first debuted in August 2014,(add link for EC Press release) an innovative product combining SemiLEDs’ Enhanced Flip chip (EF) approach with the company’s innovative ReadyWhite™ phosphor technology. The EC delivers unprecedented flexibility, reliability and manufacturability in a single 1.4 x 1.4mm low profile device. The glass top surface is also very mechanically robust, and is not prone to the handling damage or stresses faced by wire-bond or flip chips with a silicone covering. The typical 145 degree field of view also demonstrates good color-over-angle characteristics as a result of the ReadyMount technology. enabling extremely high lumen density with its rated input power of up to 3W, the EC is a fully packaged white emitter SMD component, ready for surface mounting on any board level module or COB application, . The complete white chip solution eliminates the need for complex package-level phosphor application, lowering capital costs and simplifying manufacturing configurations.

Mark Tuttle, General Manager for SemiLEDs Optoelectronics Co., Ltd., commented, “It is very exciting to have EDN Network, a leading online network of professional engineers, name SemiLEDs’ ReadyMount white chip scale package as one the Hot 100 Products of 2014. The EC series is an innovative and disruptive technology in the LED field. We are very excited for the new applications it will open up and further enable LED adoption in the lighting industry. “

“Of the many thousands of products announced during the past year, the EDN Hot 100 are the products that especially caught the attention of our editors and readers. We are pleased to share the tradition of showcasing these technologies as we celebrate the 21st anniversary of this program,” said Rich Pell, Executive and Chief Technical Editor, EDN.

The SemiLEDs EC series is ideal for general lighting applications including indoor and outdoor lighting, architectural lighting, and torches/flashlights. The rugged architecture and compact size of the single white die are additionally well suited for mobile device flashes and LCD backlighting applications.

SemiLEDs’ CSP series of LED chips is RoHS compliant with production quantities available now.
