Named as a winner in the Sapphire Award category “ICs & Electronic Components for Solid State Lighting,” Seoul Semiconductor’s advanced technology Acrich NanoDriver Series LED drivers feature a unique power topology that results in smaller size, increased efficiency and lower costs – with power densities up to 10X higher and component reduction up to 30% higher than conventional LED drivers.

The Acrich NanoDriver Series devices are the world’s smallest miniature LED drivers, measuring just 13.5mm2 with a profile of 1.42mm, and are available in four versions rated for 16W and 24W output power for operating LED lighting with input power of 120V or 230V (50 – 60Hz). Manufactured with Seoul Semiconductor’s patented Acrich technology, the Acrich NanoDriver Series devices feature an IC directly attached to the substrate, dramatically reducing the size of the driver.

“The new NanoDriver Series is a game-changer for lighting designers, enabling them to reduce the size, weight and volume of their light fixtures,” explained Nam Ki-bum, sales executive vice-president at Seoul Semiconductor. “This breakthrough in size reduction for the Acrich NanoDriver Series is the result of the company’s continuing investment in high voltage LED technology, combined with a unique power topology that results in smaller size, increased efficiency and lower costs.”

“We are targeting these LED drivers toward designers of small and medium-sized lighting for under 24W such as bulbs, filaments, fluorescent lighting, and downlights. We expect the global market is worth approximately $3 billion. Seoul Semiconductor will drive to meet current and future market requirements with our patented Acrich NanoDriver technology,” added Nam.

The drivers are UL recognized, provide flicker-free, low ripple current operation for phase-cut dimmers, and are compliant to California Title 24, enabling lighting designers to meet the most challenging design requirements, including low flicker, high power factor, Class B EMI and 2kV surge.

In addition, Seoul Semiconductor has recently won patent litigations involving LED drivers filed against two lighting companies in the US in September and October, 2018.
