* Editors’ Note 1: Samsung’s chip-scale package (CSP) is combination of advanced flip chip technology and phosphor dispensing technology. A CSP chip can be created by flipping over blue LED chips and then immediately coating them with a phosphor substance.
** Editor’s Note 2: Flip chip technology is a technology that mounts the LED dies upside down so that its top side faces down, in contrast to wire bonding, in which the chip is mounted upright and wires are used to interconnect the chip pads to electric boards.
*** Editor’s Note 3: Luminous flux is the measured parameter of the perceived power of light on human eye, and uses lumen (lm) as unit in LED industry. One lumen is defined as the luminous flux of light produced by a light source that emits one candela of luminous intensity over a solid angle of one square radian.
