Components distributor Young ECC Electronics is unveiling new lines of white LEDs that are based on non-yttrium aluminum garnet (non-YAG) phosphor technology.

According to Iric Yodts, business development manager at Young ECC, the company was prompted to develop these products by customers who are looking for cheaper white LEDs that do not infringe on the patents of LED maker Nichia Corp.

"Our new partner has combined a proprietary non-YAG phosphor with the brightest blue chip in the market to produce in excess of 11cd in a 5mm LED and 140 lumens in a 5W LED," said Yodts. "We are confident that by introducing this new line of white LEDs, we can secure market competitive edge by offering cheaper and legal white LEDs."

The devices are integrated with powder epoxy, forming a tablet-like compounded phosphor. The LEDs are suitable for decorative lighting, indoor architectural lighting, torch lighting, camera flash, traffic signaling and other lighting applications.
