BridgeLux Inc. has announced the release of its new BSV Series side-view LED chip product line. Products under the new series are based on the company's patented structure for elongated geometry.

The elongated chips, available in 0.254-by-0.457mm and 0.254-by-0.584mm sizes, feature a rectangular shape, enabling thinner displays for mobile phones, PDAs, digital still cameras, MP3 players and notebook PCs. When combined with commercially available phosphors, the BSV series blue chips will deliver 1500mcd typical luminous intensity for a packaged white LED, allowing it to serve in a wide variety of white-light solutions in backlight applications. The chips are currently in qualification with selected customers, with volume production quantities available in late 2006.

According BridgeLux CEO Robert Walker, "The BSV series will enable our customers to greatly expand their offerings in the backlight market. It's important to note that this side-view product line is just one of our product families based on the targeted intellectual property investments that we have developed to penetrate specific markets and applications."

The company recently filed a patent infringement suit against Cree Inc. for the elongated geometry structure used in the BSV series LED chips (U.S. patent number 6,869,812).
