Since its establishment in the US in 2005, SemiLEDs has asserted itself as a groundbreaker in the LED industry. This is due to a commitment to innovation and the development of the game-changing Vertical LED chip on Metal alloy substrate. Today, SemiLEDs offer a wide range of ultra-high power LED chips and packages and has enjoyed notable success in the UV LED market.
The company was awarded with the World Economic Forum’s prestigious ‘2009 Technology Pioneer Award’. SemiLEDs' proprietary technology and process outshines the competition because of two unique advantages:
1. Copper Alloy Base- giving thermal conductivity of 400 W/m-k.
2. Vertical Structure- providing perfect Lambertian pattern
As a NASDAQ listed American company with a strong presence in Asia (state-of-the-art RD and manufacturing facilities in both China and Taiwan), SemiLEDs is well placed to respond to the demands of the global LED market.
