3mm (T1) SiC/GaN High-Energy White LED Maximizes Creative Options for Engineers and Designers
TORRANCE, CA - April 10, 2002 - LEDtronics(R) announces its new 3mm (T1) White Discrete LED (Light Emitting Diode) that maximizes the creative options available to engineers and designers. (LEDtronics part number L120CW3KB-22D.) This water-clear, 8000K 3mm (T1) White LED integrates a Silicon Carbide/Gallium Nitride (SiC/GaN) diode with optical grade epoxy to produce a 3500mcd illumination at 20mA that is visible even in direct sunlight. The 3mm (T1) LED features a 22 deg viewing angle and sturdy leads for reliability in wire-wrap/through-hole PCB applications Solid-state design renders LEDs imperious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), 3mm LEDs operate reliably year after year and appropriate for many applications. They can be used as individual pixels in a large dot matrix screen, full color screens, moving signs and displays. More diverse applications for 3mm LEDs include light color synthesis. Other applications include medical imaging and biomedical instrumentation, tele-/data-communication equipment, cellular telephones, PDAs, machine vision systems, and color recognition and calibration systems - any application that requires a bright reliable LED. Founded in 1983, LEDtronics® leads where others only follow when it comes to designing, manufacturing and packaging state-of-the-art LEDs to meet the world's constantly changing lighting needs. Our inventive product line encompasses an array of direct incandescent lamp replacement Based LEDs, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LEDs high intensity sunlight-visible Discrete LEDs, PCB LEDs circuit board status indicators, surface mount diodes SMT LEDs, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.
