A pioneer in light emitting diode (LED) technology in South Korea, Lumens has attained remarkable feats in its 13-year history. It rose to become the 8th leading LED supplier worldwide and posted

20 per cent year-on-year growth over the last 10 years.

“Our vertically integrated ecosystem enables us to develop customised solutions encompassing all our LED processes – from core chips, substrates, packages and modules to various lighting applications and control systems,” says Dr Yoo Tae-kyung, chairman and CEO. Lumens serves well-known brands such as Samsung, Hyundai, Kia, Volkswagen and SL.

Lumens pioneered the development of the world’s first patented silver-free flip-chip technology. Its silver-free flip-chip technology has no wire bonding, which eliminates the risk of wire damage for a longer lifespan, and uses dielectric semiconductor thin films for higher reflectivity and luminous efficiency.

For its AC LED light engines for lighting applications, Lumens’ AC-ALL directly connects to an alternating current line voltage and features the world’s first flicker reduction solution. Lumens has collaborations with Korea Institute of Science and Technology in developing LED lights for horticulture.

Lumens has been active in the automotive lighting field by obtaining safety quality certificates in South Korea and China for LED PKG and LED Module, and has been supplying automotive lighting for major Korean and Chinese carmakers.

In the pipeline is Lumens’ micro-LED with an integrated single chip for high-resolution display imaging. Its micro-LED is designed to reduce power consumption by up to 50 per cent and has a threefold increase in luminous efficiency. With the use of these micro-LED technology based products, it will soon supply micro-LED HUD, which is possible to display a much clearer image.

Lumens is also developing Active Optical Cable, which will replace all digital connectivity with a much faster, lighter and more flexible connection. It also developed flip chip-based ultraviolet (UV) LED emitters used for blood and protein analysis and air and water purification.

Lumens seeks co-technology development partners in Asia possessing micro-LED display and UV-C LED expertise with a focus on China, Japan and India.
