Daktronics introduces new Flip-Chip COB LED Technology

The new COB (Chip On Board) technology provides an alternative to traditional Surface Mount Device (SMD) and Integrated Matrix Device (IMD) LED options

Daktronics has released its Flip-Chip COB (Chip On Board) LED display technology worldwide. The company’s latest addition to its Narrow Pixel Pitch (NPP) product family brings tighter pixel spacings ranging from 1.8 millimetres to 0.9 millimetres, combined with lower power consumption.

This product shows we’re staying on the cutting edge of technology in the LED industry,” said Adam Gilliland, product manager, Daktronics. “As indoor applications have grown exponentially, it’s become increasingly important to meet the needs of the marketplace – one that is always looking for innovative, new ways to capture the attention and awe of their audiences.”

The new COB technology provides an alternative to traditional Surface Mount Device (SMD) and Integrated Matrix Device (IMD) LED options. It brings a lower amount of heat to the display face and removes the wire bonds to increase reliability. It also decreases the power consumption.

Daktronics says the cabinet for the COB product is the thinnest in the marketplace today and also the lightest weight available.

“Product reliability is extremely important to us here at Daktronics and ensuring our projects are successful on day one as well as many years into the future,” said Jim Vasgaard, national sales manager for the AV sales channel, Daktronics.

“We have a dedicated lab focused on product and component testing, among other things, to ensure we’re selecting the best parts that pass our stringent testing requirements to provide industry-leading reliability in our flip-chip COB LEDs, constant current drivers, power supplies and encapsulant.”

The product comes with various brightness options with specific applications in mind. Daktronics says the brightness options, in combination with the black contrast, can combat indoor indirect sunlight in multiple applications, ranging from office environments to high-ambient brightness lobbies and concourses.

“The thin, lightweight design feeds into these applications, along with the durability of the screen. You can touch and tap on the display itself without worry of damaging the product beyond repair,” added Gilliland. “These advantages are something we’re excited to see implemented across multiple installations in the near future.”
