ProTek Devices Launches New Business Line Targeted at LED Lighting
Product Line Consisting of Chip Scale ESD Protection Diodes are Also Ideal for
Display Boards, Automotive LEDs; Backlight LEDs and Solid State Lighting
TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 22, 2012
TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --ProTek Devices™ today announced a
new business line currently targeted at LED lighting manufacturers. The
product line consists of individual unpackaged die available in wafer form.
The die in wafer form are available as unidirectional and bidirectional
electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection diodes. ProTek Devices' new LED die
solutions meet various LED lamp manufacturing needs. In addition to LED
lighting manufacturers, other applications include digital display boards;
automotive LEDs; backlight LEDs and solid-state lighting.
The new LED die is provided with a thickness of < 6 mils and support LED
lighting voltage at 5V. Other voltages will be introduced soon. ProTek
Devices' chip scale product line for LED lighting applications include the
bidirectional PLED508 and PLED511 die and the unidirectional PLED508U and
PLED511U. They are all available as probed good die in wafer form. The wafers
are delivered quartered, sawn and mounted on blue tape.
Wafer Die Technical Details
The bidirectional PLED508 size is 7 X 7 mils while the bidirectional PLED511
is 9.5 X 9.5 mils excluding scribe area. Minimum BV is 5.7V and stand off
voltage is 4.7V. Maximum leakage current is 1 microampere for the PLED508 and
the PLED511. Capacitance is 15pF for the PLED508 and PLED511.
The unidirectional PLED508U size is 6.5 X 6.5 mils while the unidirectional
PLED511U is 10.5 X 10.5 mils, excluding scribe. Minimum BV is 6.0V and stand
off voltage is 5V. Maximum leakage current is 0.5 microampere for the PLED511U
and 0.1 microampere for the PLED508U while capacitance is 80pF for both. The
back metal for the all PLED wafers is Ti/Ni/Ag and the top metal is Al/Cu. All
PLED wafers are also 6 mils thick.
Pricing and Availability
Minimum order quantities are the equivalent of five whole wafers (quartered)
and are delivered in individual boxes. The PLED511 has 200,000 diodes; the
PLED511U has 150,000; the PLED508 has 300,000 and the PLED508U has 340,000 per
wafer. Pricing is one cent per die and all wafer options are now available in
