TORRANCE, CA — February 28, 2001 — LEDtronics® announces the availability of 0805-Profile Miniature SurfLEDsTM (light emitting diodes) for SMT (surface mount technology) processes. The 0805-Profile SurfLED measures 2mm x 1.25mm, comes in six colors and several related hues, on EIA standard 8mm tape seven-foot reels, and with a viewing angle of 140º. LEDtronics offers 0805-Profile SurfLEDs in two dazzling intensities: (1) High Efficiency and (2) Super Bright. Depending on the color, High-Efficiency 0805-Profile SurfLEDs offer typical luminous intensities from 2.0 mcd to 20 mcd at 20 mA current; Super-Bright 0805-Profile SurfLEDs offer typical luminous intensities from 25 mcd to 60 mcd at 20 mA current.

Additionally, using SurfLEDs with LEDtronics OptiLED Light Pipes simplifies the spatial relationship between the PCB (printed circuit board) and remote indicator illumination points by channeling all of the LED-generated light to the exact location where the light is required. Compatible with infrared and vapor phase reflow soldering processes and pick-and-place automated equipment, 0805-Profile SurfLEDs’ are effective tools to cut the cost of PCB assembly without compromising product integrity. 0805-Profile SurfLEDs broaden the illumination options available for back lighting computer panels, handheld instruments, data- and tele-communication status indicators, etc... .

High-Efficiency 0805-Profile SurfLEDs are available in Super Red (660nm, 20 mcd), High-Efficiency Red (635nm, 12 mcd), Amber (610nm, 15 mcd) Yellow (585nm, 10 mcd), Hi-Efficiency Green (568nm, 18 mcd), Green (568nm, 15 mcd) and Pure Green (555nm, 2.0 mcd). Super-Bright 0805s come in Super Red (660nm, 25 mcd), Ultra Red (660nm, 40 mcd), Super Orange (620nm, 20 mcd), Soft Orange (610nm, 50 mcd), Super Yellow (595 nm, 60 mcd / 587nm, 60 mcd), Aqua Green (523nm, 60 mcd) and Blue (470nm, 40 mcd).

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 17 times longer than incandescent lamps! LEDs are environmentally friendly because they use 80% to 90% less operating power than standard incandescent bulbs.

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 LED Lamps, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LED Lamps, 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.

Depending on choice of color, prices for 0805-Profile Miniature SurfLED SMT LEDs range from $0.14 each - $1.14 in quantities of 500. 0805-Profile LEDs carry a three-year limited warranty. Samples are available for qualified customers.
