Seoul Semiconductor announced that Mimi Lighting, a Korean LED lighting
company, applied an innovative technology SunLike to the company’s home
lighting products, which to be launched in the 3Q.

applied to this home lighting is a natural light LED, which minimizes
the disadvantages of artificial lighting and maximizes the advantages of
natural light. It is an advanced light source that combines the latest
optical semiconductor technology of Seoul Semiconductor and Toshiba
Materials’ TRI-R technology, a sunlight spectrum reproduction technology.

is an innovative product that optimizes the balance of RGB (red, green,
and blue), the three primary colors of light, similar to the spectrum of
sunlight, and lowers the blue light, known to affect human biorhythms,
to the level of sunlight.

The Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) in Spain announced
in April that the greater the exposure time to blue light at night, the
more people’s bodily rhythm breaks down, resulting in the higher
incidence of breast cancer and prostate cancer. It is the result of the
study, “Evaluating the Association between Artificial Light-at-Night
Exposure and Breast and Prostate Cancer Risk in Spain.”

Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike is being supplied to global LED customers
in Korea, China and Japan that manufacture home lightings, smart desk
stands and lamps. As a light source that protects children’s eye health
and helps maintain the human circadian rhythm, it is expected to
contribute to the enhancement of global customers’ values.

“It is very meaningful that SunLike, the innovative LED technology
resembling natural light, has been applied to home lighting and its
technology has been recognized by the customers for providing healthy
light to consumers,” said Minsu Son, marketing vice president of Seoul
Semiconductor. “We will continue to provide optimal solution that
increases our customers’ values by developing differentiated,
people-oriented light sources.”

In May, SunLike was listed in the “Top 10 MUST SEE Products” at the 2018
Edison Award as its technology was acknowledged by global experts. In
addition, it won the Gold Award in the Product of the Year from a German
electronic parts magazine, Electronik, in March this year.
