LED Chips and LED Components - What is it?
We at Chips 4 Light work with optoelectronic semiconductors and distinguish on the one hand in LED chips or as a synonym for chip bare die, die or dice and LED component on the other hand.
LED chips are pure semiconductors without substrate, encapsulation material and possibly optics. The contacted chip is the actual light-emitting source.
If the chip is contacted on a carrier (ceramic, FR4, pre-molded leadframe...) and then encapsulated, so to speak built into a package, then we speak of a LED component. The component is the finished part, which can then be soldered onto a circuit board.
