Seoul Semiconductor, one of the world’s leading LED manufacturers, announced today that Acriche, the world’s first AC-driven semiconductor lighting source, has received CE Marking and German TUV certification, confirming that Acriche conforms to stringent global standards for product safety. Acriche is the world’s first LED package to receive the CE Marking.

Environmental regulations are becoming a global issue. In August 2008, the European Union will be implementing the Energy-using Products (EuP) Directive which will require specific electrical and electronic devices to attain the CE-Marking certification before they can be permitted to trade in the European Union. The CE-Marking and TUV certifications validates Acriche’s performance as a safe product, a feature which will help generate substantial sales for Acriche in the European market.

Acriche is the world’s first semiconductor lighting source that can be driven directly from an AC outlet without a converter. Acriche, a Seoul Semiconductor patented product, is used in power systems ranging from 100-120 volts and 220-230 volts. Elektronik, one of the most prestigious magazines in Germany, named Acriche its 2006 "Product of the Year" in recognition of its technical innovation.

The CE Marking and TUV certification confirms that Acriche meets even the most stringent environmental and safety standards, and further positions the product for continued growth in the European market as well as globally.

In November 16, Seoul Semiconductor launched a special pricing event to offer Acriche at 30-40% discount from its usual price for the remainder of 2007. The event, introduced as part of the Acriche one-year anniversary celebration, has generated positive feedback from customers.
