  • Publication number: 20200035888
    Abstract: Standardized photon building blocks are used to make both discrete light emitters as well as array products. Each photon building block has one or more LED chips mounted on a substrate. No electrical conductors pass between the top and bottom surfaces of the substrate. The photon building blocks are supported by an interconnect structure that is attached to a heat sink. Landing pads on the top surface of the substrate of each photon building block are attached to contact pads disposed on the underside of a lip of the interconnect structure. In a solder reflow process, the photon building blocks self-align within the interconnect structure. Conductors on the interconnect structure are electrically coupled to the LED dice in the photon building blocks through the contact pads and landing pads. The bottom surface of the interconnect structure is coplanar with the bottom surfaces of the substrates of the photon building blocks.

  • Publication number: 20190341534
    Abstract: Light emitting diode (LED) constructions comprise an LED having a pair of electrical contacts along a bottom surface. A lens is disposed over the LED and covers a portion of the LED bottom surface. A pair of electrical terminals is connected with respective LED contacts, are sized larger than the contacts, and connect with the lens material along the LED bottom surface. A wavelength converting material may be interposed between the LED and the lens. LED constructions may comprise a number of LEDs, where the light emitted by each LED differs from one another by about 2.5 nm or less. LED constructions are made by attaching 2 or more LEDs to a common wafer by adhesive layer, forming a lens on a wafer level over each LED to provide a rigid structure, removing the common wafer, forming the electrical contacts on a wafer level, and then separating the LEDs.

  • Publication number: 20190325521
    Abstract: A system and method for displaying quantity related information determined for a plurality of time periods are described. According to one method, a trader may define one or more time periods for which a trading application may determine traded quantities, traded buys, traded sells, or other quantity related information at a plurality of price levels during the defined time periods. The trading application may then graphically display the quantities for each time period in relation to the static axis of prices. The method further includes periodically updating the displayed traded quantity to reflect the quantity during the defined time period, where the quantity is updated based on subsequent market updates that are received from the exchange for the tradable object.

  • Patent number: 10325890
    Abstract: Standardized photon building blocks are packaged in molded interconnect structures to form a variety of LED array products. No electrical conductors pass between the top and bottom surfaces of the substrate upon which LED dies are mounted. Microdots of highly reflective material are jetted onto the top surface. Landing pads on the top surface of the substrate are attached to contact pads disposed on the underside of a lip of the interconnect structure. In a solder reflow process, the photon building blocks self-align within the interconnect structure. Conductors in the interconnect structure are electrically coupled to the LED dies in the photon building blocks through the contact pads and landing pads. Compression molding is used to form lenses over the LED dies and leaves a flash layer of silicone covering the landing pads. The flash layer laterally above the landing pads is removed by blasting particles at the flash layer.
