An ExceLED AlGaInP LED from Rohm

High-brightness LEDs have been widely adopted in the industrial and automotive industries because of their superior reliability and energy efficiency. Rohm Co. Ltd intends to bring this level of reliability and energy efficiency to home and portable electronic applications with its new ExceLED series of AlGaInP LEDs.

The ExceLED series offers six standard packaging optionsfive chips and one lampand five colorsgreen, yellow-green, red, yellow and orange. These four-element LED devices are 1.6 to 16 times brighter than conventional 2- or 3-element products, the company said, making them especially suitable for home electronics such as PCs and AV equipment that require small-size LEDs. This brightness level likewise remains stable even in low-current conditions, enabling the new LED devices to save power in battery-driven devices such mobile phones, digital still cameras and portable music players. The ultra-precise processing technology used for the ExceLED series ensures minimal luminosity degradation even after 10 years, according to the company.

Rohm believes the electronics market will soon shift from standard-type LEDs to the high-reliability and high-brightness type. With Asia being the manufacturing hub for electronic devices, the company sees a significant market for high-reliability products such as ExceLED in this region.
