Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd., a leading global innovator of LED products and technology with continued research and development in compound semiconductors for over 30 years, has recently launched WICOP TE (Top Electrode) designed to significantly improve the thermal efficiency of headlamps for vehicles. WICOP LED was applied to 10% of the global vehicle production in 2020, and is expected to see an increasing demand in the future electric vehicle market. Seoul Semiconductor expects to accelerate the move to expand its market share in the global automotive lighting LED market worth approximately USD 2.7 billion.
Due to the growing demand for electric vehicles, the interest in high-efficiency LED products for a light headlamp and less batteries consumption is increasing. Accordingly, the thermal dissipation performance of the headlamp has become an important task in order to improve the efficiency and lifetime against the temperature increase.
Seoul Semiconductor’s WICOP TE for headlamps has deviated from the previous method of attaching the LED package to the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and can attach the package directly on the heatsink, designed to quickly discharge the heat generated in the headlamp.
