Osram launches compact CSP-based Ceramos C LED for mobile devices
Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg, Germany is expanding its existing portfolio for flash applications with a product featuring a specially developed chip-scale package (CSP). With Ceramos C, Osram is following the trend for miniaturization, as the new LED is the smallest yet in its product family, suitable for flash applications on smartphones etc.
The new Ceramos generation no longer has the conventional ceramic package and bond wiring of its predecessors. Instead it uses a CSP platform specially developed by Osram Opto, ensuring that the entire chip surface is uniformly illuminated and that there is virtually no loss of light.
Also, Ceramos C has a smaller footprint (just 1.4mm x 1.4mm x 0.21mm, three times shallower than its predecessor) but produces the same brightness despite its smaller package size, giving designers greater freedom. Ceramos C is suitable for use in smartphones or tablets that need a compact LED particularly for the front camera, but also for the main flash and for the flashlight function. With a typical color rendering index (CRI) of greater than 80, the LED offers natural colors no matter where it is used, claims the firm. Luminous flux is 260lm and the color temperature is 4500K.
“Despite its small size, Ceramos C is extremely powerful and a real bonus for end customers,” says marketing manager Fiona Mak. “Our Ceramos C fits perfectly with the trend for miniaturization because it’s small enough to be easily installed in even the thinnest smartphones and tablets.”
