Toyoda Gosei grants silicate-based white LED device license to Harvatek

Toyoda Gosei Co Ltd of Kiyosu, Aichi Prefecture, Japan has entered into a license agreement relating to silicate-based white LEDs with Taiwan-based surface-mount device LED maker Harvatek Corp.

Toyoda Gosei, together with Tridonic Jennersdorf GmbH in Austria and Leuchtstoffwerk Breitungen GmbH and Litec GbR in Germany - the four members of the B.O.S.E. (Barium Ortho-Silicate Europium) Consortium - owns basic patents for a technology that generates white light with blue LEDs and novel yellow silicate phosphors. The technology enables the manufacture of white LEDs with high accuracy and high brightness, the primary applications of which include cell phones, laptops, GPS and other small displays, accounting for a large share of the existing global LED market.

In order to make the white LED technology available to the LED industry, the B.O.S.E. Consortium offers two different licensing schemes: a Device License for using the white LED technology, and a Material License for manufacturing and marketing the phosphors.

Toyoda Gosei has granted the Device License to Harvatek for it to join the pool of white LED makers with the B.O.S.E. Consortium’s silicate-based LED patents.
