LEDtronics announces low profile, right-angled SMT LEDs

March 25, 2005
Date Announced: 25 Mar 2005 LEDtronics announces new, low profile, right-angled surface mount LEDs - the Series SML070 LEDs. With the tiny footprint of only 2.4mm x 3.3mm, these discrete LEDs are ideal for placement on PCBs where components are densely packed. They come in a one-color version and a bi-color version. Single-colored LEDs available are Yellow (590nm) and High Efficiency Green (570nm) and High Efficiency Red (620nm), all have clear lenses. Bicolor LEDs come in the combination of High Efficiency Green/High Efficiency Red with a milky-white lens. Depending on the color, luminous intensities range from 1.2 mcd to 2.3 mcd at 20 mA current. Use the Series SML070 with LEDtronics OptiLED® Light Pipes to simplify the spatial relationship between the PCB and remote indicator illumination points. Light pipes channel all of the LED-generated light to the exact location where the light is required. Compatibility with infrared and vapor phase reflow soldering processes and pick-and-place automated equipment make the Series SML070 LEDs effective tools in cutting costs in PCB assembly while maintaining product integrity. Series SML070 LEDs broaden the illumination options available for back lighting computer panels, handheld instruments, data- and tele-communication status indicators, etc... Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably year after year and are virtually maintenance free. The Series SML070 Right-Angled SMT LEDs are priced at $0.95 each for single color and $1.42 each for bicolor, quantity discounts are available. Ask for datasheet 178.
