ELECTRONICS: Seoul Semiconductor will introduce the first 100 lm/W AC LED light source during the first quarter of 2010. Offering 25 percent greater efficiency than existing LED light products, this latest offering from Seoul Semiconductor’s Acriche brand will be available for sampling by March 1.Seoul Semiconductor notes that Acriche outlasts incandescent and compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, and due to its long life is less costly to use than traditional lighting methods.
Like other Acriche products, the new 100 lm/W LED needs no ac-dc converter. Additionally, it generates less than 1/10th the carbon emissions of an incandescent bulb, an important consideration in meeting new regulatory standards in markets worldwide.
Mass production of the new Acriche will begin in the first quarter of this year.
