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
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 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, Ultraviolet (UV) and Infrared (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. For additional information,
