Seoul Semiconductor announces side-view LED with 8.8-lumen output

March 16, 2013
Date Announced: 16 Mar 2013 -- Seoul Semiconductor's 0.6mm (tall) side view LED is optimized for the fast-growing smart phone and tablet (phablet) market which requires high brightness and high efficacy. The high output LED delivers 8.8 lumens and is 10% brighter than a conventional side view LED.Seoul, South Korea –– Seoul Semiconductor, a global LED manufacturer (, has announced a 0.6T side view LED that achieves 8.8 lumens, the world’s best performance in light output, to occupy the fast-growing phablet market. (phablet: smart PHone and tABLET PC). This new side-view LED achieves the world’s best brightness and energy efficiency by improving the efficacy and the design of its LED chip, package and phosphors. The added performance improves the visibility of phablets in bright places and gives the added benefit of energy savings which helps extend battery life. The company plans to apply this technology to other sizes of side-view LEDs such as the 0.8mm and the 0.4mm.Seoul Semiconductor has been in mass production of 1.0mm type side-view white LEDs since 2002 and has successively launched 0.8mm, 0.6mm and 0.5mm side-view LEDs. The products have been adopted by the major players in the mobile phone and tablet PC market space. Using the accumulated experience and outstanding technology for side-view LEDs, Seoul Semiconductor will continue to offer high-end products with a variety of specifications for the global phablet market.Hyuk-won, Kwon, IT division leader says, “Seoul Semiconductor maintains a leading position in the side-view LED market by continually introducing thinner and brighter products to meet the needs of our customers.” He added that, “The company is committed to serving the needs of the fast-growing global phablet market."Seoul Semiconductor – About UsSeoul Semiconductor ( manufacturers and packages a wide selection of light emitting diodes (LEDs) for the automotive, general illumination/lighting, appliance, signage and back lighting markets.
