Para Light adds SMD family of compact LED numeric displays

Oct. 12, 2005
Date Announced: 12 Oct 2005 Para Light Corp., a world leader in providing LEDs to electronics OEMs, has introduced a new family of surface-mount-device (SMD) digital numeric displays in a variety of compact sizes. The Para Light SMD Display series models come in heights of 0.30, 0.39, 0.51 and 0.56 inches – each model only 0.148 inches thick – with all sizes available in both single- and dual-digit configurations and in common anode and cathode versions. At introduction, the LED displays are offered in green and red.The SMD Display series features a flat-pad design with inner connections, thus eliminating the need for leads and enabling automatic pick-and-place production and easy mounting on a printed circuit board. Because the units require no manual insertion – like traditional through-hole LEDs – assembly costs are lower. The displays operate at currents as low as 2 milliamps and meet industrial temperature ratings of -35ºC to +85ºC. The new SMD Display series is available now, with prices starting at $0.55 and $1.25 each for single- and dual-digit models, respectively. Delivery is 7-8 weeks, and samples are available for qualified customers. Para Light is a major global provider of high-quality optoelectronic components and a pioneer in LED manufacturing. Founded in 1987 and headquartered in Taiwan, with North American offices in California, the company employs about 1,500 people, including a quality-control staff of 80 and a dedicated R&D staff of 50. Para Light maintains state-of-the-art facilities in both Taiwan and China; is ISO 9002, QS-9000 and TS 16949 certified; and continuously invests in the latest automated equipment to ensure the highest quality and to control the cost of its products.
