Seoul Semiconductor & Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc. (SETi) to Present “UV LEDs: From Niche to Mainstream” at Strategies In Light 2019

Aug. 29, 2019

Seoul Semiconductor and Sensor Electronics Technology, Inc, (SETi), global innovators of LED products and technology, will participate in the annual Strategies in Light conference and exhibit, one of the leading conferences for the international LED lighting industry, scheduled for February 27 – March 1, 2019 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

In addition to showcasing its latest LED innovations, Dr. Peter Barber, director of business development for Seoul Semiconductor and SETi in the Americas, will deliver a technical presentation on March 1 at 10am entitled “UV LEDs: From Niche to Mainstream.”

“With the dynamic evolution of UV technology from the earliest mercury vapor (Hg) lamps to today’s UV LEDs, we’ve seen significant increases in efficiency, power output, and reliability,” explained Dr. Barber, in a preview of his presentation. “These improvements have led to an expansion of the applications where UV LEDs can be employed, including disinfection systems, as well as horticultural lighting applications.”

Two of Seoul Semiconductor’s leading products – SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs and the NanoDriver Series ultraminiature LED drivers – have been named as finalists in the 2019 LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards, presented annually at Strategies in Light. Based on a new technology, the SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs represent a significant advance in the quality of light by implementing spectrum closest to natural sunlight.

Introduced in June 2017, the SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs were co-developed through the combination of Seoul Semiconductor’s optical semiconductor technology and Toshiba Materials’ TRI-R technology, which defines its original concept as “the light closest to the sun for human well-being.” TRI-R1 technology enables the spectrum of natural sunlight to be reproduced by a white LED light source.

Another Seoul Semiconductor technology advance nominated as a Sapphire Award finalist is the NanoDriver Series LED drivers – which feature a unique power topology that results in smaller size, increased efficiency and lower costs – with power densities up to 10X higher than conventional LED drivers. The NanoDriver Series devices, rated for 16W and 24W, are the industry’s smallest LED drivers at just 13.5mm2.

Seoul Semiconductor will exhibit in Booth #10410 at Strategies in Light on February 27 – March 1, 2019 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, located in Las Vegas, NV.
