E.E: What’s the news about new products?

B.J: We have a strong portfolio in:

  • IR LED Chips from 680 nm – 1000 nm and > 1000nm
  • UV LED Chips, LED components and LED Modules from 260 – 425 nm
  • Laser diodes starting from 380 nm in UV up to 1000 nm in IR, VCSEL, TO housings, SMD devices

E.E: What are the ranges of products?


  • Optoelectronic components: LED chips, detector chips, LEDs, laser diodes, customer-specific modules/LEDs
  • Services: sorting, measuring of LED chips and laser diodes, long-term storage in gel pack, waffle pack in dry storage cabinet
  • Customized LED chip qualification and certification; in-house development and naming
  • Prototype production with qualified consulting, PCB design, simulation (optical and thermal), manufacturing, quality assessment, functional tests
  • Standardized (small) series production

E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active?

B.J: Customer often miss the right quantity in the right specification:

  • Sample quantities not available for them – we offer precise sorting for our customers
  • Desired specifications not available – Binning or characterization of LED chips and measurement of laser diodes
  • Recognize technological advantage – we are already looking for a suitable product on the market the moment we experience the need

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

B.J: We still see a strong need for miniaturization of light sources in applications such as medical products and industry applications.
