What Does COB Stand For?

Example of a COB chip

In the lighting world, the abbreviation COB stands for Chip on Board. Chip on Board technology is a fairly recent bare chip technology innovation which packages groups of LEDs together in clusters on the circuit boards. As a result, the light output of COB Lighting is extremely bright, especially considering the compact nature of the technology involved. COB Lighting also has numerous other benefits such as a long lamp life and high Lumen output.

Because COB chips are built straight onto a circuit board, they are more efficient and less likely to fail than alternatives. Further, COB LEDs will be able to offer you a greatly reduced level of energy wasted as unwanted heat. This results in a greater level of efficiency, making COB LED Lighting a definite lighting blockbuster for the future, as technology develops.
