UV Chip – A New Paradigm in UV Light Sources

Technology Overview

Chip-scale UV light source is a new revolution in the disinfection field. Many applications, impeded by size constraints, performance limitations and high cost of existing UV light sources, now become possible utilizing this new and sustainable technology. With its unrivaled germicidal performance, immediate startup, very low temperature dependence and small size, this innovative UV chip for disinfection of water, air and surfaces is a game changer! It opens up new market segments and enables a wider use of easy disinfection in consumer products. The groundbreaking UV chip technology has been developed with low cost and high volume in mind. Manufacturing is done using wafer-scale manufacturing principles, where vast numbers of devices are manufactured at the same time, resulting in a highly scalable production while using methods that are affordable to customers. Chip-scale UV facilitates the launch of small, disinfection units embedded in numerous appliances. Drinking fountains, small air conditioners, fridges, dishwashers, water taps – can all benefit significantly from this innovation. With first product delivering 20mW of UV output power using a bare 20x20mm foot print and more versions to come, the stage is set to change the perception and way of thinking about UV disinfection.
