Crystal IS single-chip UVC LED performance record

Crystal IS, Inc., a manufacturer of proprietary high-performance ultraviolet light-emitting diode (UVC LED) for inspection, purification and disinfection applications, recently announced that it has successfully achieved a significant light output of more than 65 mW at 260 nm in a single UVC LED continuous mode of operation. Achievements, achieving record performance.

UVC refers to an ultraviolet lamp with a wavelength between 200 and 280 nanometers (nm). UVC wavelength light can be used to disinfect water and surface surfaces, to eliminate harmful microorganisms in food and air, and for use in spectroscopy applications.

Yole Developpement estimates that the market for UVC lamps in 2012 will reach nearly $200 million, and such lamps are increasingly being replaced by UV LEDs.

The company's senior vice president of business development, Therese Jordan said: "Unlike UV lamps, UVC LEDs are mercury-free, small and rugged, so they are suitable for many designs and are expected to have a longer life and can be realized. Environmentally friendly disposal."

What is a Rigid Flex PCB?

Rigid flex printed circuit boards are boards using a combination of flexible and rigid board technologies in an application. Most rigid flex boards consist of multiple layers of flexible circuit substrates attached to one or more rigid boards externally and/or internally, depending upon the design of the application. The flexible substrates are designed to be in a constant state of flex and are usually formed into the flexed curve during manufacturing or installation.

Rigid flex designs are more challenging than the design of a typical rigid board environment, as these boards are designed in a 3D space, which also offers greater spatial efficiency. By being able to design in three dimensions rigid flex designers can twist, fold and roll the flexible board substrates to achieve their desired shape for the final application's package.
