ROHM introduced its newly launched blue-green LED products SMLD12E2N1W and SMLD12E3N1W that support the adoption of Color Universal Design (CUD).
Color is used in a variety of ways but there are approximately over 200 million people have problem distinguishing between red and green color. In addition, each individual perceives color differently. Since people’s perception of color varies, there is a growing need in the society to implement Color Universal Design that takes into account the various types of color vision in order to deliver information accurately to as many people as possible.
Following the trend, ROHM developed blue-green chip LEDs with special wavelengths. These products are ideal for implementing Color Universal Design in a wide range of devices, utilizing a vertically integrated production system from the element fabrication stage and leveraging ROHM’s strength thorough quality control.
The SMLD12E2N1W and SMLD12E3N1W are certified by the Japanese NPO, Color Universal Design Organization – making it possible to achieve color schemes and designs that can be easily discernible by everyone, including those who cannot distinguish differences in color.
The products support applications like fire alarm system indicator lights, industrial equipment warning lamps and public transportation information displays that enable everyone to conceive correct color.
