Everlight introduces SMD LEDs for LCD backlight applications

June 11, 2009
Date Announced: 11 Jun 2009 New side view 99-211 and top view 62-127 SMD LED packages offer high luminous intensity and energy savings for TFT LCD backlight applications. Alongside the growing popularity of LEDs in general lighting applications, LEDs are quickly going mainstream in TFT-LCD backlighting applications. LEDs are now considered the best solution for replacing CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps) in LCD backlighting, offering benefits as, Pb-free and RoHs compliant, lower package profiles, smaller package footprints, long lifetime, high NTSC (National Television System Committee), and energy savings. To meet increasing environmental protection initiatives for LCD backlighting applications, Everlight Electronics Co. Ltd. (TSE:2393) announces the release of two brand new SMD LED packages: 99-211 side view package and 62-127 top view package.The 99-211 is a side view LED with up to 2200 mcd Luminous Intensity, and is intended for use in small size LCD backlight applications (under 10-inch). These include notebooks, mobile phones, indicators, illuminators, and switch lights. The 62-127 is a top view LED with up to 7200 mcd Luminous Intensity, high flux output, and high current capability for use in large size LCD Monitor/TV, light pipe applications, indicators and backlighting in office and family equipment. Both packages offer wide viewing angles of 120° typcial, and low power consumption in order to equalize the light source and save energy. These SMD LEDs are also used for light guide plate application. Everlight Electronics is also capable of providing our customers a total solution with design in service, in depth information on LCD backlighting technology, and high installed product capacity to satisfy customers’ orders. The 99-211 and 62-127 SMD LED packages offer the right combination of features and specifications suitable for LCD backlighting of notebooks and large size TVs.To learn more about the advantages and experience the difference of Everlight’s LEDs in backlight applications, please visit our booth at TWTC Hall 1 A927 in Photonics Festival Taiwan during June 10th-12th, 2009.About Everlight Electronics Co.
