TORRANCE, CA — February 14, 2001 — With SMT (surface mount technology) processes and applications on the rise, LEDtronics® announces the
availability Ultra-Miniature 0603-Profile SurfLEDsTM (light emitting diodes) that are compatible with infrared and convective reflow soldering
as well as pick-and-place automated equipment.
Measuring a miniscule 1.6mm x 0.8mm, 0603-Profile SurfLEDs expand the options available for backlighting
personal desktop accessories, cellular telephones, keypads, palm pilots, data
communication equipment, etc. Ultra-Miniature 0603-Profile SurfLEDs radiate
a vivid light that is available in two intensities: (1) High Efficiency 2.0 mcd - 20
mcd at 20 mA current, and (2) Super Bright SurfLEDs 25 mcd - 60 mcd at
20 mA current. LEDtronics offers 0603-Profile SurfLEDs in six colors and several
related hues, on EIA standard 8mm tape seven-foot reels, and with viewing
angles of 140º. 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.
High-Efficiency 0603-Profile SurfLEDs are available in Super Red (660 nm,
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 (555 nm, 2.0 mcd). Super-Bright 0603s come in Super Red (660nm,
25 mcd), Ultra Red (660nm, 40 mcd), Super Orange (620nm, 60 mcd), Soft Orange
(610nm, 50 mcd), Super Yellow (595nm, 60 mcd / 587nm, 60 mcd), Aqua Green
(523nm, 60 mcd) and Blue (470nm, 30 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 an 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 Ultra-Miniature 0603-Profile SurfLED
SMT LEDs range from $0.14 each - $1.14 in quantities of 500. 0603-Profile
LEDs carry a three-year limited warranty. Samples are available for qualified
customers. For additional information on how to incorporate 0603-Profile
