The WICOP TE (Top Electrode) packaging developed by Seoul Semiconductor is designed to significantly improve the thermal efficiency of headlamps for vehicles.
The thermal dissipation performance of the headlamp has become an important task in order to improve the efficiency and lifetime against the temperature increase. WICOP TE for headlamps can attach the package directly on the heatsink, quickly discharging the heat generated in the headlamp.
The previous generation WICOP LED technology was applied to 10 percent of the global vehicle production in 2020, and is expected to see an increasing demand in the future electric vehicle market. Seoul Semiconductor obtained a permanent injunction against 13 automotive lighting brand LED products infringing WICOP patents in July this year.
Seoul Semiconductor expects to accelerate the move to expand its market share in the global automotive lighting LED market worth approximately US$2.7bn. The company currently has 182 EV LED projects on 102 car models with 32 customers.
“Weight reduction and heat dissipation performance of headlamps are more important due to increased demand for electric vehicles and slim headlamp design trends. Seoul Semiconductor has already applied high-efficiency and high-heat dissipation WICOP products to more than 100 global vehicle brands, and we expect to increase automotive LED sales through continuous demand expansion in the future,” said a spokesperson for Seoul Semiconductor.
