SEOUL, South Korea - The global leading LED manufacturer, Seoul Semiconductor (CEO Chung Hoon Lee,, announced lighting fixtures with Acriche, AC-driven solid state light, was installed in a bookstore inside of the cultural center and a souvenir in National Museum located in Seoul, South Korea. DELICIA, a brand of First System Korea Networks("F/S Korea Networks") as a supplier of LED lighting fixtures with Acirche, said this release was completed on 23rd December, 2008.

According to F/S Korea Networks, as a starting point from National Museum of South Korea, replacement projects with Acriche lighting fixtures in other 12 museums are planned. Also, F/S Korea Networks gained the priority to install Acriche lighting fixtures in the facility of the Ministry of Cultures, Sports, and Tourisms of South Korea.

Acriche, adopted into the lighting of this national museum of South Korea, is a AC-driven solid state light different from general DC-driven LED requiring AC/DC converters when operated. The strong points of AC-driven Acriche are not only to make itself to be installed easily without converters , but also to solve problems regarding to life span shortened by converters with 10k~20k hrs and such as maximizing its life span, 30k ~ 40k hrs.

Acriche demonstrated its innovative technology inside and outside of Korea. Acriche has been awarded in 'Newtech Korea 2008' and nominated 'Korea's Ten Best New Technologies of 2008' in December 2008. Acriche was also named as "Product of the Year" by Elektronik in 2006, one of the most prestigious electronics publications in Europe.

In addition to cost savings another key benefit of an LED fixture do not generate ultraviolet and infrared rays, detected in conventional and halogen lamps and harmful. These rays can be not only to human body but also to objects exhibited. This feature is expected to warrant the continued success of Acriche.
