Samsung Introduces Several Leading-edge LED Components for Advanced Mobile Devices
SEOUL, South Korea --(Business Wire)--
Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced component
solutions, introduced a range of leading-edge LED component solutions
today for use in advanced mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Samsung's new LEDs for mobile devices include two reflector-integrated
flash LED packages - the 3432 1.8t (FH341A) and 3432 1.4t (FH341B), plus
a flip-chip flash LED 2016 (FH201A), as well as two side-view LEDs - the
3810 0.6t (MS062F) and 3810 0.8t (MS082F).
The new LED products will be showcased at the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) to
be held at Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain, February 24-27 (Hall 2,
Booth 2G40). Samsung will start mass producing the new mobile-market
LEDs in March, which are likely to then begin appearing in the open
market in the second quarter.
"Samsung is becoming an integrated LED component solutions provider that
offers highly differentiated value to customers by producing outstanding
LED component solutions which are shaping new directions in mobile
devices," said Bangwon Oh, senior vice president, LED strategic
marketing team, Samsung Electronics.
With its long-standing expertise in the mobile industry as well as
extensive investment in LED technology and manufacturing, Samsung has
now secured a clear competitive edge in LED technology and components
that meets the rapidly changing needs of the mobile industry.
Reflector-integrated flash LED for high-end
Because high-quality smartphone cameras require a wider FOV (Field of
View) angle for better picture quality, Samsung's new
reflector-integrted flash LEDs are designed to enable a great deal of
flexibility by providing a wide FOV within a small space through the
integration of a light source, a lead frame, and a reflector with its
own optics and diffusion features.
Of the latest LED mobile offerings, Samsung's new reflector-integrated
flash LED - the 3432 1.8t (FH341A) delivers over 165 lux at 1A and a
minimum CRI (News - Alert) (Color Rendering Index) of 80, assuring quality photos in
daylight and at night. In recognition of such superb performance levels,
the 3432 1.8t will be used in the next Galaxy smartphone, which is
expected to be introduced later this month.
Also new to Samsung's reflector-integrated flash LED line-up is the 3432
1.4t (FH341B), which is specifically designed for mobile OEMs seeking
extra-slim LED solutions. The 3432 1.4t package includes a reflector and
is only 1.4mm thick, a thickness ideal for smartphones and tablets
thinner than 7mm. In addition, it provides a minimum illuminance level
of 165 lux.
Standard flash LED with high light quality
Another addition to the Samsung mobile family, the new standard flash
LED 2016 (FH201A) applies Samsung's proprietary cell-film phosphor
technology to flip-chip packages, which applies a thin film of phosphor
to each package. Providing exceptional design flexibility, Samsung's
2016 offers 220lm of light output and improves color deviation by
approximately 40 percent compared to packages using Samsung's previous
technology that dispensed phosphor on each chip. This more affordable
LED solution also offers a high level of color quality, which is rare to
traditional flash LED products. By introducing its first 2016-sized
flash LED package, Samsung has further strengthened its mobile LED
High brightness Side View LEDs
Other new LED packages for mobile applications are Samsung's Side View
LEDs - 3810 0.6t (MS062F) and 3810 0.8t (MS082F), which feature high
color reproducibility, thanks to their high brightness levels. Samsung's
Side View LED packages are also power-efficient, operating on less than
Samsung's 3810 0.6t provides 3.1cd, while coming in at a mere 0.6mm in
z-height - ideal for slim smartphones and tablets. The 3810 0.8t offers
more luminous intensity at 3.2cd, with a 0.8mm thickness, making it
suitable for tablet and notebook PCs.
