Seoul Semiconductor’s flash LED has been named ‘Product of the Year for 2008’ by Elektronik, an electronics magazine in Germany.
The Elektronik editorial team pre-selected 111 products in 10 different categories for the vote. This year Seoul Semicondutor’s flash LED was selected as the best product in the Opto-electronics category.
This is the second time Seoul’s products have received this award. The first was for Acriche, the AC-driven semiconductor lighting source, awarded as ‘Product of the Year for 2006’.
Seoul Semiconductor’s flash LED, FC W211Z, features super bright and ultra-mini size. It is expected to replace xenon lamps. It can operate at a high current of two Amp, and emits up to 100 candelas. It also enables the shooting of continuous images without the need of recharging the battery.
