Seoul adds HB-LED lamps to speed penetration of solid-state lighting market

South Korean LED maker Seoul Semiconductor Corp has added two new high-brightness (HB) LEDs, the Z6 and Z7, to its Z-series family. It has also unveiled a plan to release one or two new products each month to meet increasingly diverse customer needs and demands brought about as LEDs proliferate in the general illumination solid-state lighting (SSL) marketplace this year.

The Z-Power LED Z7 series (4W) is a white HB-LED constructed on a special ceramic PCB. It offers 440lm brightness at 5500K color temperature. In particular, the Z series offers compact LED placement in a 9mm x 7mm x 3.2mm package for designing high-brightness solutions in demanding indoor and outdoor lighting products.

The Z-Power LED Z6 series has individually addressable 1W, red/green/blue and white LED die which can create full-color LED products. If all die are operated at the same time, white color (4W) can be created in a diverse range of color temperatures (pure, warm and neutral). The Z6 also offers more design flexibility, with independent circuits controlling each of the four LED chips inside the package.

The Z6 series, which is available in an ultra-small package (9mm x 7mm x 1mm), is designed especially to create dynamically colored lighting such as landscape lighting, stage lighting and digital signage with full-color performance. Color mixing properties are claimed to be superior to rival products. The series is also scheduled to be released at a 30% less expensive price point.

“We expect to impact new technological and economic inflection points in the LED lighting market with the new Z-Power LED Z6/Z7 series,” comments VP of sales Brian Wilcox.

Samples for both the Z6 and Z7 series are available now. Mass production will begin in February.
