New High-Bright Molded White LED Backlighting Assemblies for 7" TFT LCDs


Brecksville, OH, June 6, 2006 - Global Lighting Technologies (GLT) Inc. has introduced a new white LED backlight assembly for 7" TFT LCDs that utilizes the company's patented MicroLens(TM) molded light guide technology to provide high brightness with fewer LEDs, reducing part count and cost.

These new backlight assemblies are fully RoHS compliant. They are ideal for applications such as portable DVDs, as well as automotive GPS and DVD systems and other daylight-readable displays used in cars and minivans.

"These molded light guide assemblies provide outstanding brightness of 3,500 to 8,000 cd/m2 (depending upon the number of LEDs) and crisp color with excellent uniformity for mid-size LCDs, while reducing part count and lowering the overall manufacturing cost," said David DeAgazio, GLT's Director of Sales Worldwide.

These custom-designed backlight assemblies are available with traditional (phosphor) white LEDs, and an RGB version is under final development. The key, according to GLT, is its MicroLens(TM) pixel-based light extraction technology. In this process, micro-optical elements are molded directly into a light guide, and are optimized to deliver more collimated light, which increases the efficiency of the optical system. By utilizing advances in LED technology combined with 3-D optical design, proprietary MicroLens(TM) pattern development software, precision manufacturing equipment and in-house tooling design and fabrication, GLT is able to develop and produce the world's most efficient LCD backlights.

These custom-designed, fully integrated modules are easily installed into the host application. GLT maintains three state-of the-art production facilities in China and Taiwan for efficient and cost-effective manufacturing.

Pricing for the MicroLens(TM) 7" LCD backlight depends on brightness required and quantity.

A 7" TFT LCD backlight using phosphor LEDs can be purchased in high-volume production quantities for as low as $7 - 10 each. For details, contact Global Lighting Technologies with your application.
