Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike LEDs earn industry recognition in 2018 IES Progress Report

Date Announced: 14 Aug 2018

ANSAN, South Korea – Seoul Semiconductor(KOSDAQ 046890), a leading global innovator of LED products and technology, has announced that its SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs, powered by TRI-R, were recognized in the 2018 Illumination Engineering Society (IES) Progress Report, presented on August 10, 2018 at the IES Annual Conference in Boston, MA.

As the recognized technical and educational authority on illumination, IES annually announces significant new advancements in lighting products, research, publications, and design tools in its IES Progress Report. Acceptance is based on an impartial judging process used by the committee to evaluate each submission on its uniqueness, innovation and significance to the lighting industry.

SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs are the world’s first LEDs to produce light that closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight, delivering human centric lighting that lowers the blue light peak common in conventional LEDs.

They deliver light that eases eye strain, helps maintain stable human circadian rhythms, and enhances the color clarity of objects. Introduced in June 2017, the SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs are an advanced light source that combine the latest optical and compound semiconductor technology of Seoul Semiconductor with Toshiba Materials’ TRI-R® technology to produce light that closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight.

According to the results of a study done by the Bio-Information Laboratory of Seoul National University Hospital in July of 2018, SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs have been shown to reduce eye discomfort and improve sleep patterns. Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series LEDs have been adopted by premium lighting brands in Korea, US, Europe, China, and Japan to deliver high value human centric lighting for home lighting, smart desk stands and lamps, offices, hotels, and public facilities.

RG-1 level Eye Safety Certification

In addition, the SunLike Series LEDs are the only 25W single light source in the world to receive RG-1 level Eye Safety Certification from the Korea Testing & Research Institute last November. This is the safety level given to light sources with no photobiological hazards.

“It is honor for the SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs, powered by TRI-R, to be recognized in the 2018 IES Progress Report as one of the significant developments in the art and science of lighting, validating our focus on the development of high performance, value added LED technology,” said MinSu Son, marketing vice president of Seoul Semiconductor.

“The demand for human centric lighting continues to rise as experts agree on the importance of quality light for human health,” added Son. “We developed the SunLike Series LEDs to provide lighting designers and engineers with true natural spectrum LEDs that not only minimizes the negative health effects of artificial light, but actively enhances the overall lighting experience.”

In May, 2018, SunLike Series LEDs were recognized with a 2018 Edison Award from the influential lighting industry news site EdisonReport as one of the “Top 10 MUST SEE Products” at the 2018 Lightfair International conference. In addition, SunLike Series LEDs received the Gold Award as a Product of the Year from the German electronics industry magazine, Electronik, in March of this year.
