Intematix and Tridonic Consortium Announce Agreement on BOSE Phosphor Patents for LEDs
Nov 17, 2010 Intematix, the U.S. manufacturer of LED phosphors, and Tridonic,the manufacturer of lighting components and part of the Zumtobel Group of Austria, have announced a comprehensive licensing agreement governing silicate patents for LEDs. The patents control the use of LED phosphor materials and the application of the phosphors in LEDs.
The licensing agreement, which has been negotiated by Tridonic as the major stakeholder of the BOSE consortium, establishes cross-licensing between Intematix and the BOSE consortium covering each party’s patents in silicate phosphor materials. As such, Intematix becomes an official supplier of BOSE phosphors.
Regarding the use of phosphors in LEDs, the BOSE consortium has granted Intematix a license to manufacture and sell LED packages and LED modules. In return, Intematix has agreed to actively offer its customers simple licensing procedures for the utilization of the BOSE application patents.
The BOSE patents were originally filed in 2000 and relate to the manufacture and use of phosphors in LEDs. Silicate phosphors enable high-accuracy, high-brightness packaged white LEDs when applied to a blue LED chip. Primary applications include cell phones, laptops, GPS and other small displays, accounting for roughly 50 % percent of today’s global LED market.
