Sharp muscles in on blue diode business

November 21st, 2006 · No Comments

Sharp is getting serious about the blue diode business. The Japanese giant joins Sony, which has a cross licensing deal with Nichia Corporation, in volume production of the component. However, while Sony is routing all its production to production lines, Sharp is positioning itself as the key supplier for all the other and manufacturers. The company is expected to ramp up production to 150,000 units a month and says its diode has a 10,000 hour lifetime.
