Imagine the lego bricks in the video banner above as LED packages.
With conventional Surface Mount Device (SMD) technology, each LED chip is encapsulated in a package.
Each package has 4 pins and is attached to a printed circuit board. Each single pin is vulnerable to humidity and vibrations. The moisture in an SMD package can damage the optical characteristics of LEDs.
With Chip-On-Board (COB) nanotechnology, LED chips can be attached directly on a substrate without using packages. The result is dramatically increased reliability and functionality.
By smart design of UVC LED arrays in a box, its content can be optimally irradiated from all angles. With a little imagination, one can also see the lego bricks in the video banner as bacteria and viruses being eliminated from the surface or packaging of a product by UVC light.
The latest innovation by COBstr is the implementation and design of 1 proprietary driver IC per LED bead, as opposed to 1 driver IC per multitude of LEDs. This technology is at the heart of an ultra thin (1 mm) LED foil that can be laminated in glass.
