Toshiba has recently released its first GaN on Silicon LEDin a 6450 standard package with several new features.
The TL1F1 LED of Toshiba are produced on a cheap 8” silicon substrate in a standard power silicon facility from Toshiba. The integration in a standard facility has been facilitated by a smart bonding process without gold.
Moreover, a significant work has been done to thin epitaxial layer in GaN. The GaN thickness approximates the one on Sapphire LED.
A low current density per sq cm is obtained, estimated at 20A/sqcm, lower than sapphire LED. However, the 2nd generation of GaN on Si LED produces 30% more lumen.
This report provides a complete teardown of the LED and the package with:
OSRAM promotes 2 sq. mm LED for projection or MR16 lamp replacement
The efficiency is higher compared to similar Oslon 1 sq. mm LED
More than twice the light is obtained using an improved package design
