Verbatim and Seoul Semiconductor to introduce halogen-replacement lamps with new LED chip technology.


ďnPolaĒ utililizes gallium nitride (GaN) substrates from Verbatimís parent company Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation for GaN epitaxial growth, replacing sapphire or silicon carbide substrates.  Seoul Semiconductorís patented nPola minimizes defects in the active layer and allows LED chip current densities 5 to 10 times higher than conventional chips.  Consequently, 5 to 10 times brighter light output can be realized from the same chip size.

Verbatimís initial launch of nPola halogen LED lamps will focus on the MR16 form factors, with a primary target of 50W MR16 halogen equivalency.   The combination of high light output and beam characteristics that closely resemble halogen lamps will allow lighting designers and contractors to adequately replace halogen lighting with high performance, energy efficient LED products in both new design and retrofit environments.

SSC and Verbatim will continue to work together to develop innovative LED lighting products.

Verbatim LED lamp with nPola will be presented during Lighting Japan 2013 from 16th to 18th Jan. 2013 and mass Production is expected to start in March 2013.

Verbatim LED lamps are available in lighting and electrical commercial channels.
