Nichia Corp. and Citizen Electronics Co. Ltd have entered into an alliance for the packaging and marketing of white LEDs. Under the agreement, Citizen Electronics will purchase production quantities of Nichia InGaN dice for the manufacture of packaged white LEDs. The packaging and marketing of white LEDs by Citizen Electronics will be licensed under Nichia's white LED patent portfolio.

"The marketing of unpackaged die and the licensing of Nichia technology are both a first for Nichia, so this alliance was not something we rushed into," said Noboru Tazaki, managing director and general manager of Nichia's Optoelectronics Products Division. "In Citizen Electronics, we found a partner that could take Nichia's technology to a broader market in a high-quality package, and that made the difference."
