Seoul Semiconductor signs-up European distributor

South Korean LED lighting maker Seoul Semiconductor Co Ltd (SSC) has signed Silica (an Avnet Company) to distribute its entire line of LEDs and solid-state illumination products throughout Europe.

Among SSC’s LED products is the recently introduced Acriche, which the company claims is the world’s only semiconductor light source capable of running directly from household AC power without the need for additional converters. Both SSC and Silica foresee LED technology such as Acriche becoming the primary lighting source for commercial and residential applications.

Miguel Fernandez, Silica's president, said: “Silica expects to have a strong emphasis on the illumination market in the future and the partnership with Seoul marks a major development in our product strategy. We will work with customers through a pan-European team of dedicated illumination-focused engineers to ensure that our customers will enjoy not just a single source of supply, but also the in-depth technical support that is essential for realizing successful product design within the shortest possible timeframe.”

Silica has 37 branch offices throughout Europe and offers a portfolio of semiconductor products from 23 vendors, as well as technical support.
