Having “Ever Researching for a Brighter World” as our motto, Nichia has grown in the field of manufacturing and sales of fine chemicals, particularly inorganic luminescent materials (phosphors). In the process of the challenging pursuit of brighter luminescent and light-emitting materials, we succeeded in developing and commercializing the super high brightness Blue LED in 1993. It was accepted with great amazement in the related industries throughout the world. Since the first announcement of the Blue LED in 1993, Nitride-based LEDs in different emission colors ranging from Ultraviolet to Yellow have been contributing to the diversification of LED application fields. In addition to LEDs, a lot of resources are now being focused on the R/D of bluish purple laser diodes, which will definitely play a key role for the further expansion of the information media industry. We have a belief that Nitride-based semiconductors will become one of the most exciting areas of the semiconductor industry in the near future.We hope that Nichia will continue to be a company that will be able to make a contribution to the world by evolving its original and unique technologies in the field of manufacturing.
Nordic Power Converters has developed a power converter that is five times smaller and lighter and has 2-5 times longer lifetime than current power converters. This technology breakthrough is known as Very High Frequency Switch Mode Power Supplies (VHF SMPS). LED lighting products are powered by electrical power converters (LED drivers), but traditional power converters often cause LED products to fail long before the expected lifetime. Further, traditional power converters are bulky and prevent novel designs of LED products. Nordic Power Converters’ technology will set a new market standard for high quality, long-lived and reliable LED drivers and additional applications, leaving a greener footprint. Nordic Power Converters sells LED drivers to agile LED fixture manufacturer that produce quality LED luminaires in significant numbers. The team works closely with its business partners to supply high-end LED drivers with optimal specifications for the needs of their end-users. The business is based in Copenhagen, Denmark and originates from DTU, the Technical University of Denmark. The company and its disruptive technology have received numerous awards and recognitions.
