Part 1: What is Cob LED?
Cob LED, full name Chip-on-Board LED, is a popular technology in the lighting industry and an important part of Kosoom lighting products. It leads the development of the lighting industry and stands out for its unique design and excellent performance.
The basic definition of Cob LED is: it is a lighting technology that integrates multiple LED chips onto the same substrate to form a highly compact lighting source. This integrated design has many impressive features that make it popular for a variety of lighting applications.
First, Cob LEDs are known for their high luminous flux. Because multiple LED chips are integrated together, they work together to produce higher brightness, which means Cob LEDs can provide more light output, making them ideal for lighting large spaces. For example, our COB Light Strip uses Cob LED technology, which provides excellent brightness, making it ideal for lighting long distances or wide areas.
Secondly, the uniform light distribution of Cob LED is its unique feature. Multiple LED chips are densely arranged on the same substrate, eliminating shadows and uneven lighting problems that may occur in traditional LED lighting. This means you’ll get more consistent and comfortable lighting, whether for home or commercial lighting. For example, our COB Track Lights provide excellent display effects for retail stores, art galleries and exhibition halls with their uniform light distribution, making exhibits more eye-catching.
Finally, the compact design of Cob LED is also one of its advantages. Because multiple LED chips are integrated on the same substrate, Cob LED lighting fixtures are usually smaller and take up less space, which is very useful for places that require flexible installation. For example, our Panel Lights feature Cob LED technology and, with their thin design, can be easily embedded into ceilings or walls, providing high-quality lighting without taking up too much space.
In short, Cob LED, as a lighting technology that integrates multiple LED chips on the same substrate, has the remarkable characteristics of high luminous flux, uniform light distribution and compact design. It has become the first choice for many professional lighting projects, such as COB Light Strip, COB Track Lights and Panel Lights, etc., which fully demonstrate the excellent performance and wide applicability of Cob LED technology.
Part 2: How Cob LED works
The working principle of Cob LED is deeply influenced by its internal structure, which is designed to perform well in the field of lighting. Let’s take a deeper look inside the Cob LED to better understand how it works and performs.
Internal Structure: The internal structure of Cob LED is one of the keys to its excellent performance. In Cob LED, multiple LED chips are closely arranged on the same substrate, which is usually metal or ceramic. These LED chips are connected to the substrate via tiny gold wires to form a single unit. This design helps improve light uniformity because multiple LED chips can emit light together, eliminating the point source effect common in traditional LED lighting. This means Cob LEDs are able to provide more consistent lighting with reduced shadows and light unevenness, making them excellent in a variety of applications.
Working principle: The working principle of Cob LED is based on the collaborative work of multiple LED chips. When current passes through each LED chip, they start to emit light. Because multiple LED chips are densely arranged on the same substrate, their light output can be superimposed to form a powerful and uniform light source. This means that Cob LEDs can provide higher brightness while maintaining lighting uniformity, making them very practical in a wide range of lighting applications.
Driving circuit and control method: In order to ensure the stable brightness and color temperature of Cob LED, appropriate driving circuit and control method must be used. These circuits adjust the current as needed to control brightness and maintain the desired color temperature. In addition, Cob LEDs usually have good thermal management systems to ensure stable performance over long periods of operation. This is very important because high-brightness LEDs generate heat when operating, which may affect the life and performance of the LED if effective thermal management is not carried out.
Example: Let’s go through two example products to better understand how Cob LED works. First, consider the Cuttable LED Strip, a cuttable Cob LED strip. With cropping, you can customize the length to your needs without worrying about uneven brightness. Secondly, Long LED Light Strips, these long light strips use Cob LED technology, which can provide powerful lighting, cover a wide area while still maintaining a uniform lighting effect, and are suitable for large-scale lighting projects.
In short, the internal structure, working principle and appropriate driving circuit of Cob LED are the basis for its excellent performance and wide applicability. It provides uniform lighting effects through multiple LED chips working together, making it popular in various lighting applications. Examples include Cuttable LED Strips and Long LED Light Strips, which fully demonstrate the outstanding performance of Cob LED technology.
