Yokohama Electron Co., Ltd - OptoLight specializes in state-of-the-art Light Emitting Diode (LED) die testing, evaluation, sorting, mounting, assembly and packaging of high -quality, high-power and high-efficiency LED multi-chip Solid State Lighting (SSL) devices. Newly released LED devices save energy and can be used for a wide range of applications including amusement, gaming, POP, signage, bio-medical, backlights and general illumination.

(PRWEB) August 23, 2005 -- Yokohama Electron Co., Ltd. (YEL) a world leader in providing light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to electronics OEMs, has introduced a new line of high-power LED lighting devices manufactured to the highest quality standards in its OptoLight facility located in Nagano, Japan. New LED devices are ideal energy saving alternatives for incandescent and florescent lighting in a wide range of applications including amusement, gaming, POP, signage, bio-medical, backlights and general illumination.

Rapid improvement in LED Solid State Lighting (SSL) performance characteristics, achieved through High Brightness LED technology and the appearance of White LED, has greatly expanded potential SSL markets and applications.

Production volumes of the CupLight, TopLight, PositionLight, and custom StarLight modules are available. The devices are offered in a range of vibrant single colors including ultra-violet (UV) and all-in-one RGB package styles providing multi-color dynamic digital white. Power ratings vary from 0.2 watt for a miniature Surface Mountable Device (SMD) to 15 watts for a custom high radiance flat plate illuminator. After introducing die sort technology into their production, YEL-OptoLight now successfully manufactures high quality multi-chip mounted LED lamps.
