Seoul Semiconductor introduces Acriche A7 high-power AC-LED for lighting applications

Feb. 17, 2011
Date Announced: 17 Feb 2011 Direct AC-driven high-power (3.2W) LED brings high efficiency, excellent cost and performance in a highly reliable, ultra-small, ceramic-circuit packageLeading global LED provider Seoul Semiconductor (SSC) today announced its new AC-powered LED lighting product named Acriche A7. Seoul Semiconductor had recently released two new high-brightness white LED products according to their 2011 plan that aims to release new products every month.The brand-new Acriche A7 is smaller in size but significantly improved in terms of reliability and ESD-withstand. Acriche, which can operate under both AC and DC power supplies, is one of the flagship products of Seoul Semiconductor. It can be operated on common household AC voltages such as 110V/220V without a converter. A7 is a 3.2W LED, which has been a popular choice for general illumination applications. It provides 305lm and is offered in an ultra-small, ceramic-circuit package (8x8x3.7mm). Above all, it is very low in "cost/lm" among other lighting-class LED products making it well-suited for commercial lighting products such as down lights, MR16, PAR30 and PAR38 replacement lamps, A7 can last over 40,000 hours and improves the lifespan of the end product because a converter is unnecessary. Traditionally, DC LED lamps have lasted about 10,000 hours because of the short lifespan of some of the components in the converter. However, with the Acriche that does not require any converters, the lamp manufacturer can achieve cost-savings while improving system efficiency and lifetime. The A7 series samples are now available upon request. Mass production will begin on Feb 15.
