Seoul Semiconductor announced that Mimi Lighting, a Korean LED lighting company, applied an innovative technology SunLike to the company’s home lighting products, which to be launched in the 3Q.

SunLike applied to this home lighting is a natural light LED, which minimizes the disadvantages of artificial lighting and maximizes the advantages of natural light. It is an advanced light source that combines the latest optical semiconductor technology of Seoul Semiconductor and Toshiba Materials’ TRI-R technology, a sunlight spectrum reproduction technology.

SunLike is an innovative product that optimizes the balance of RGB (red, green, and blue), the three primary colors of light, similar to the spectrum of sunlight, and lowers the blue light, known to affect human biorhythms, to the level of sunlight.

The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) in Spain announced in April that the greater the exposure time to blue light at night, the more people’s bodily rhythm breaks down, resulting in the higher incidence of breast cancer and prostate cancer. It is the result of the study, “Evaluating the Association between Artificial Light-at-Night Exposure and Breast and Prostate Cancer Risk in Spain.”

Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike is being supplied to global LED customers in Korea, China and Japan that manufacture home lightings, smart desk stands and lamps. As a light source that protects children’s eye health and helps maintain the human circadian rhythm, it is expected to contribute to the enhancement of global customers’ values.

“It is very meaningful that SunLike, the innovative LED technology resembling natural light, has been applied to home lighting and its technology has been recognized by the customers for providing healthy light to consumers,” said Minsu Son, marketing vice president of Seoul Semiconductor. “We will continue to provide optimal solution that increases our customers’ values by developing differentiated, people-oriented light sources.”

In May, SunLike was listed in the “Top 10 MUST SEE Products” at the 2018 Edison Award as its technology was acknowledged by global experts. In addition, it won the Gold Award in the Product of the Year from a German electronic parts magazine, Electronik, in March this year.

Oxford Nanopore Prevails in Patent Ruling against Pacific Biosciences22.1.2019 17:04Pressemelding

Today the European Patent Office revoked Pacific Biosciences patent EP3045542 with claims to a single molecule sequencing process wherein two strands of DNA are linked by a connecting nucleic acid. The validity of the patent had been challenged by Oxford Nanopore. The EPO ruled that the claims to a single molecule sequencing process were unsupported in the application and that the application only supported a template-directed synthesis sequencing method. As Pacific Biosciences were unwilling to accept this change, the patent was revoked. The decision by the EPO is consistent with a recent decision by the International Trade Commission (ITC) to limit the claims of a related Pacific Biosciences US patent to template-directed synthesis.
