Marktech Optoelectronics Launches Advanced 235nm and 255nm UVC LEDs on Starboards

Marktech Optoelectronics, a leader in innovative light emission and detection solutions, today announces the launch of its new 235nm and 255nm UVC LEDs mounted on starboards, a significant innovation designed to accelerate the development and prototyping of sensors, instruments, and sanitizers.

These state-of-the-art UVC LEDs on starboards are a convenient solution, relieving optical and electrical design engineers from the intricacies of PCB design and assembly, and allowing them to swiftly evaluate the performance of 235nm or 255nm UVC LEDs in their projects.

The Silanna UVC LEDs are packaged in Marktech’s proprietary ATLAS hermetic SMD package. The award-winning ATLAS package provides exceptional environmental protection for UVC chips in a highly compact footprint. The new Silanna UVC LEDs on starboards are available in flat lens and dome lens versions. The flat lens provides a wider viewing angle of 120 degrees, and the dome lens reduces the viewing angle to 60 degrees.

Starboard with Dome Lens Silanna Safe™ UVC 235nm LED

UVC LEDs on Starboards are specialized metal-cored printed circuit boards pre-assembled with 235nm or 255nm UVC LED emitters. This plug-and-play solution empowers engineers with the ability for immediate testing and integration, streamlining the development process for a wide array of applications, including water quality sensors, UV-vis spectrometers, UV transilluminators, mercury vapor gas monitors, upper air disinfection systems, UV tower surface sanitizing robots, UVC water purifiers, and more in both industrial and consumer products sectors.

Critical Advantages of Marktech’s UVC LEDs on Starboards:

  1. Rapid Prototyping: Engineers can skip the initial PCB design and assembly phases, speeding up the development cycle.
  2. High Efficiency and Safety: Featuring Silanna Safe™ 235nm emitting chips, these UVC LEDs provide outstanding power efficiency with reduced health risks. They ensure only minimal skin irritation without the long-term dangers of skin cancer and cataracts associated with higher wavelength UVC LEDs.
  3. Durability and Eco-friendliness: The UVC LEDs are designed for longevity, exceeding 9,000 hours for 235nm and 18,000 hours for 255nm models, and are mercury-free, making them an environmentally responsible choice.
  4. Versatile Applications: It is ideal for a diverse range of uses, from medical equipment to consumer appliances, promoting safer, more efficient sterilization, disinfection, and optical sensing.


“This launch marks a significant milestone in germicidal UV applications,” said Vince Forte, Chief Technology Officer of Marktech Optoelectronics. “By providing these advanced UVC LEDs on starboards, we are not only delivering a superior product but also empowering designers to bring safer, more efficient solutions to market quicker than ever.”

Marktech’s UVC LEDs on starboards are now available for order. They provide an invaluable tool for developers who want to leverage the latest UVC technology for innovative and effective germicidal solutions.
