  • Publication number: 20140209945
    Abstract: A flexible light sheet includes a thin substrate that allows light to pass through it, a transparent first conductor layer overlying the substrate, an array of vertical light emitting diodes (VLEDs) printed as an ink over the first conductor layer, each of the VLEDs having a bottom electrode electrically contacting the first conductor layer, a dielectric material between the VLEDs overlying the first conductor layer, and a transparent second conductor layer overlying the VLEDs and dielectric layer, each of the VLEDs having a top electrode electrically contacting the transparent second conductor layer. Each individual VLED may emit light bidirectionally. The VLEDs are illuminated by a voltage differential between the first conductor layer and the second conductor layer such that bidirectional light passes through the first conductor layer and the second conductor layer. Phosphor layers may be deposited on both sides to create white light using blue VLEDs.

  • Publication number: 20140191249
    Abstract: An LED module is disclosed containing an integrated driver transistor (e.g, a MOSFET) in series with an LED. In one embodiment, LED layers are grown over a substrate. The transistor regions are formed over the same substrate. After the LED layers, such as GaN layers, are grown to form the LED portion, a central area of the LED is etched away to expose a semiconductor surface in which the transistor regions are formed. A conductor connects the transistor in series with the LED. Another node of the transistor is electrically coupled to an electrode on the bottom surface of the substrate. In one embodiment, an anode of the LED is connected to one terminal of the module, one current carrying node of the transistor is connected to a second terminal of the module, and the control terminal of the transistor is connected to a third terminal of the module.
