Press Release Summary:
Suited for placement on PCBs where components are densely packed, Series SML070 solid-state LEDs come in one- and bi-color versions. Single-colored units have clear lenses and come in Yellow (590 nm), High Efficiency Green (570 nm), and High Efficiency Red (620 nm). Bicolor LEDs come in combination of High Efficiency Green/High Efficiency Red with milky white lens. Depending on color, luminous intensities range from 1.2-2.3 mcd @ 20 mA current.
Original Press Release:
2.4mm x 3.3mm Right-Angled SMT LED Small Size, Low Profile, Bright Light
TORRANCE, CA - March 21, 2005 - LEDtronics announces new, low profile, right-angled surface mount LEDs - the Series SML070 LEDs. With the tiny footprint of only 2.4mm x 3.3mm, these discrete LEDs are ideal for placement on PCBs where components are densely packed. They come in a one-color version and a bi-color version. Single-colored LEDs available are Yellow (590nm) and High Efficiency Green (570nm) and High Efficiency Red (620nm), all have clear lenses. Bicolor LEDs come in the combination of High Efficiency Green/High Efficiency Red with a milky white lens. Depending on the color, luminous intensities range from 1.2 mcd to 2.3 mcd at 20 mA current.
Use the Series SML070 with LEDtronics OptiLED Light Pipes to simplify the spatial relationship between the PCB and remote indicator illumination points. Light pipes channel all of the LED-generated light to the exact location where the light is required. Compatibility with infrared and vapor phase reflow soldering processes and pick-and-place automated equipment make the Series SML070 LEDs effective tools in cutting costs in PCB assembly while maintaining product integrity. Series SML070 LEDs broaden the illumination options available for back lighting computer panels, handheld instruments, data-and tele-communication status indicators, etc... .
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably year after year and are virtually maintenance free.
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 lifting 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, Ultraviolet (UV) and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.
The Series SML070 Right-Angled SMT LEDs are priced at $0.95 each for single color and $1.42 each for bicolor, quantity discounts are available. Ask for datasheet 178.
