Nissha GSI has produced high volumes of printed lights for automotive, consumer, and medical applications. These lights are multi-layer printed structures that are AC driven but remain “cool” sources. Applications are currently being printed for backlighting of medical device displays, commercial signage, automotive accents, and consumer nightlight products.
The manufacturing of EL lamps requires printing multiple layers of dielectric and insulating layers in high precision. Lamp finishing requires part-level removal and subsequent connector attachments. Nissha GSI can support the full layout of new designs and advise on the appropriate functional constraints. EL lamps consist of a flat capacitor structure with micro-encapsulated zinc sulfide phosphor particles sandwiched between two electrodes, one of which is transparent to allow light to escape. Application of an AC voltage across the electrodes generates a changing electric field within the phosphor layer. This change of field causes the phosphor particles to emit visible light.
EL lamps draw very little power and produce little heat. Because they don't contain filaments or mechanical parts, EL lamps are not susceptible to shock, vibration, or catastrophic light failure, making them ideal for applications such as cellular phones, hand-held portable electronic devices, and automotive backlighting and “mood” lighting. Nissha GSI is a recognized leader in EL production, testing, and qualification and our EL lamps are among the brightest available. We can design EL lamps for most any size, shape, or form that you can imagine.
Nissha GSI has long-standing relationships with key material, technology, and equipment suppliers, enabling us to give you consistent quality at competitive prices.
Nissha GSI has an extensive and broad engineering capabilities. Our experienced team has helped many companies navigate difficult technical problems not solved by other manufacturing partners.
Nissha GSI invested in the laser processing, printing, and converting equipment necessary to produce repeatable and high-quality EL lamp constructions. High-volume precision screen printing with camera registration ensures consistent layer-to-layer registration of critical dielectric and conductive layers.
Years of experience have optimized the best material solutions to produce robust lamp designs with extended and maximized useful life. It is not uncommon to find multi-year extended performance of Nissha GSI lamps due to the materials selected.
