What is chip-on-board LED technology?
Chip-on-Board LED technology describes the mounting of a bare LED chip in direct contact with the substrate to produce LED arrays. It is a method of LED packaging which has a number of advantages over conventional technologies such as “T-pack” and Surface Mount LEDs.
Can you replace the LED chip lights?
Unlike traditional bulbs that can easily be detached from their fixtures, integrated LED bulbs are built into multiple electrical circuit boards. This means that it cannot easily be replaced if a bulb blows, especially not by the average person. Instead, the whole integrated fixture must be replaced.
Do LED lights need chips?
The most essential component of an LED light bulb is the chip. Think of a computer chip that holds all the data and knowledge of the computer. This is where all the action happens!
What are chip on boards made from?
Chip on board assembly is the process of mounting bare semiconductor chips on a PCB board or substrate using conductive or non-conductive epoxy. Chips usually use gold ball bonding or aluminum wedge bonding for electrical connection.
Are COB lights better than LED?
Simply put, COB LEDs are brighter, consume less power, and output a higher quality beam of light compared to older LED technologies found in most other trade show lighting today. The next time you are in the market for exhibit lighting, insist on COB LED technology!
Which is better SMD or COB LED?
SMDs are more efficient than COBs because the light source produces higher lumens per watt, which means that they produce more light with a lower wattage. They produce a wider beam of light which is spread over a greater area.
Which is brighter COB or SMD?
Although a COB LED is efficient, an SMD LED has an even greater level of efficiency. That’s because more lumens are produced per watt. In other words, you’ll receive more light with less wattage. An SMD LED also produces a broader light beam, which means the light doesn’t need as large of a heat sink as a COB LED does.
Can you replace LED array?
LED fixture manufacturers today are going for replaceable LED arrays or modules. In practice, this means that more fixtures are manufactured with replaceable LED arrays. You can now switch out your original LED array with a new one. It is just like what you do when you change a light bulb.
