Lite-On Licenses Cree White LED Tech for Laptop Displays

Lite-On has licensed Cree’s new white LED technology to use in making light bars to backlight laptop displays. The license of Cree’s US Patent No. 6,600,175 allows Lite-On to be the first licensee of Cree technology for system-level application targeting laptop displays.

"Cree's '175 patent is particularly important to companies manufacturing white LED-based display products for the laptop and PC markets, because avoiding IP disputes is essential for PC market acceptance," noted Scott Schwab, Cree vice president and general manager of optoelectronics. "This arrangement with Lite-On is an important first step to addressing the emerging LED market in laptop displays.""We knew we needed a strong LED technology with a broad intellectual property portfolio for our new backlighting products," said Rex Wu, Lite-On associate vice president. "Lite-On turned to Cree to provide a significant competitive advantage for products sold into the laptop backlighting marketplace."
