Yole SETi UV LED UVTOP270 October 2012 iconeflyerPhysical Analysis of the Device
Step by Step Reconstruction of the Process Flow
Cost of Manufacturing and Estimation of Selling Price

Yole Développement is proud to publish the reverse costing report of the SETi UV LED UVTOP270-BL-TO39, an UltraViolet LED supplied by Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc. (SETi). Based on a complete teardown process, the report provides an estimation of the production cost as well as the selling price of the component.

Packaged in a TO39 package with a sapphire ball lens, the UVTOP270-BL-TO39 is a UV LED with a luminous Flux of 600µW at 20 mA at a wavelength of 270nm, which makes it suitable for disinfection, protein analysis, forensic analysis and UV curing.
The light emitting layers are in epitaxial AlGaN on a sapphire substrate.

This report provides a complete teardown of the LED with:

  • Detailed photos
  • Material analysis
  • Schematic assembly description
  • Manufacturing Process Flow
  • In-depth economical analysis
  • Manufacturing cost breakdown
  • Selling price estimation

Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.

System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.

Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.

We offer:
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis

System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
− Integrated Circuits
− Power Devices and Modules
− MEMS & Sensors
− Photonics: LED, Image Sensors
− Packaging including wafer level
− Electronic Boards and Systems

Our analyses are used by Purchasing Departments to measure their suppliers’ cost structure, R&D Departments to confirm technological choices depending on their impact on costs, and Benchmarking/Marketing Departments to monitor the products on the market.

System Plus Consulting is committed to provide a high level of service:
− Delivery of reports and custom analyses with a minimum lead time.
− Results presentation and online Q&A sessions when support is needed.
− Open methodology and full confidentiality in order to maintain a trustful collaboration.

Since 2008, our partnership with YOLE Développement has allowed us to stay at the forefront of technologies and has added a market view to our reports.
