Samsung Introduces Versatile New Flip Chip LED Packages and Modules
SEOUL, South Korea --(Business Wire)--
Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced component
solutions, today introduced a new lineup of flip chip LED packages and
modules offering enhanced design flexibility and a high degree of
reliability. The new offerings, for use in leading-edge LED lighting
such as LED bulbs, MR/PAR and downlights, will be available in the
market during the second quarter of this year.

"By utilizing an advanced flip chip technology, Samsung has made
significant improvements to its LED packages and modules," said Bangwon
Oh, senior vice president, LED strategic marketing team, Samsung
Electronics. "Our new Samsung FC and FCOM solutions also strengthen our
overall line-up of LED component solutions, further enhancing our market
Samsung's new flip chip (FC) LED package and flip chip on module (FCOM)
solutions feature highly efficient and versatile LED structures, created
by flipping over blue LED chips and adhering phosphor film to each of
them. Unlike conventional LED packages that dispense phosphor and then
place a plastic mold over each chip, Samsung's FC package technology can
produce LED packages down to a chip-scale size without any mold,
enabling more compact lighting fixture designs.
Samsung's new FC and FCOM series can be driven at a current higher than
that of conventional LED components, and have low thermal resistance.
The low thermal resistance improves the reliability of the FC and FCOM
solutions, resulting in higher flx, and a decrease in the number of
packages needed, plus a reduction in the size of the circuit board.
Also, by attaching a cell film, each package gains uniform thickness and
lower color deviation. As a result, the FC and FCOM solutions provide a
high level of color consistency and ensure the chromaticity control of
MacAdam 3-step ellipses.
The new FC and FCOM LED solutions include a middle power LED package
(LM131A), a high power LED package (LH141A) and an LED downlight module,
all featuring the new Samsung flip chip technology.

high power LED package (LH141A)
Samsung's LM131A and LH141A flip chip packages feature exceptionally
compact form factors of 1.22x1.22 millimeters and 1.4x1.4mm,
respectively. By excluding a plastic mold, the two packages can function
at a high current level in a highly reliable manner, even after long
hour of use. These advantages make them ideal for use in LED lighting
applications requiring a small form factor with high light output,
including LED bulbs and spotlight products such as MRs and PARs.
In addition, the use of a phosphor film assures color quality that
satisfies the MacAdam 3-step.
Flip chip on module (FCOM) for LED downlight
Samsung's new FCOM downlight products are distinguished by their high
light output. Compared to a chip-on-board (COB) engine, which has a
fixed wattage, the new FCOM permits simple adjustments in the number of
FC LED packages to make the module compatible with a variety of
electrical drivers of different wattages, in allowing greater design
To create a downlight with 1000lm output and 100lm/W efficacy, Samsung
FCOMs require a 1.7x1.7 centimeter circuit. Such a small form factor
makes these FCOMs well-suited for size-sensitive LED lighting
applications, which include LED bulbs, MR/PAR spotlights, downlights and
even cove lighting.
Samsung's FCOMs satisfy the MacAdam 3-step and can support MacAdam
2-step depending on customer needs, thanks to the superb color
consistency of the chips and a rating of at least 80 on the color
rendering index (CRI (News - Alert)). The new Samsung FCOMs also offer a range of
correlated color temperature (CCT) - from 2700K to 5000K.
All of these new LED solutions will be showcased at the Light and
Building trade fair being held in Frankfurt, Germany, March 30 - April
4, along with a wide variety of other Samsung LED component solutions.
