Date Announced: 25 Oct 2005 PALATINE, IL--Lumex is introducing its new family of surface mount technology (SMT) light-emitting diodes. Their SML-LX1110xx-TR series includes the brightest SMT LEDs available from any manufacturer, with intensities as high as 25,000 mcd. Offered in the PLCC-4 package, these devices are ideal for backlighting, interior and exterior automotive lighting, architectural and decorative lighting, or anywhere a high-intensity light source is required with the benefits of surface mount packaging.Lumex's new SML-LX1110xx-TR high-power LEDs are available in four colors including red, yellow, green and blue. Typical brightness levels range from 2,500 mcd (blue) to 25,000 mcd (red) at If = 350mA. All colors are available with viewing angles (2x Theta) of either 90o or 120o. The square PLCC-4 packages measure just 10mm (0.394") on each side. They include internal reflective cavities to maximize light output and have a polarity mark for easy identification and proper placement. These devices are supplied on standard 24mm tape for automated assembly. In addition, Lumex's high-power SMT LEDs are RoHS compliant to help designers meet the new lead-free standard.Sample quantities of Lumex's high-power SMT LEDs are available from stock, with production quantities in 6 - 8 weeks. Pricing varies widely, depending on the color, viewing angle, and quantity ordered. It starts at approximately $3.00 each in quantities of 1,000.Lumex, a member of the ITW family of companies, is a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of opto- and photo-electronic components, devices and displays. These products are used mostly in the man-to-machine interface, and in some cases, for the detection of motion, short-range signaling, and fiber communications. Lumex now offers thousands of items, with an emphasis on both application-specific and customer-specific parts for the North American, Asian and European markets.The company is headquartered in Palatine, Illinois and Chu Dung, Hsin Chu County, Taiwan, ROC, with manufacturing facilities in Illinois, Taiwan and China, and distributors throughout North America, Europe and the Pacific Rim.
