Para Light Adds SMD Family of Compact LED Numeric Displays
WALNUT, Calif., October 12, 2005 - Para Light Corp., a world leader in providing light-emitting diodes (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.
