The company’s products are targeted for applications, such as video displays, electronic signs and signals, power supplies, and wireless systems. Segments The company’s segments include LED Products; Lighting Products; and Power and RF Products. LED Products segment This segment includes LED chips, LED components and silicon carbide (SiC) materials. LED Chips: The company’s RF devices are made from gallium nitride (GaN).The company’s LED chip products include blue and green LED chips based on GaN and related materials. LED chips or die are solid state electronic components used in a number of applications and are available in various brightness levels, wavelengths (colors) and sizes. The company uses its LED chips in the manufacturing of its LED components. Customers use the company’s blue and green LED chips in various applications, including video screens, gaming displays, function indicator lights and automotive backlights, headlamps and directional indicators. Customers may also combine its blue LED chips with phosphors to create white LEDs, which are used in various applications for indoor and outdoor illumination and backlighting, full-color display screens, liquid crystal display (LCD) backlighting, white keypads and the camera flash function. LED Components: The company’s LED components include a range of packaged LED products, from its XLamp LED components and LED modules for lighting applications to its high-brightness LED components. The company’s XLamp LED components and LED modules are lighting class packaged LED products designed to meet a range of market needs for lighting applications, including general illumination (both indoor and outdoor applications), portable, architectural, signal and transportation lighting. The company uses its XLamp LED components in its own lighting products. The company also sells XLamp LED components externally to customers and distributors for use in various products, primarily for lighting applications. The company’s high-brightness LED components consist of surface mount (SMD) and through-hole packaged LED products. Its SMD LED component products are available in a range of colors designed to meet a range of market needs, including video, signage, general illumination, transportation, gaming and specialty lighting. The company’s through-hole packaged LED component products are available in a range of colors primarily designed for the signage market and provide users with color and brightness consistency across a wide viewing area. SiC Materials: The company’s SiC materials are targeted for customers who use them to manufacture products for RF, power switching, gemstones and other applications. Corporate, government and university customers also buy SiC materials for research and development directed at RF and high power devices. The company sells its SiC materials in bulk form, as a bare wafer and with SiC or GaN epitaxial films. Lighting Products segment This segment primarily consists of LED lighting systems and bulbs. The company designs, manufactures and sells lighting systems for indoor and outdoor applications, with its primary focus on LED lighting systems for the commercial, industrial and consumer markets. Lighting products are sold to distributors, retailers and direct to customers.
