LEDtronics introduces the SML5050RBG1K-TR — a low profile, surface mount
full-spectrum Red, Green and Blue LED (RGB LED). These discrete LEDs provide desirable
performance and visibility in a compact size of 5.5 × 5.5 mm. The red, green
and blue diodes emit high-intensity light in a viewing angle of 120°. The
red diode's wavelength varies between a minimum of 620 nm and a maximum 630 nm.
The wavelength of the green diode is between a minimum of 520 nm and a maximum
of 535 nm. Blue operates between 460 and 475 nm. Depending on the color, luminous
intensities range from 150 to 500 mcd at 20 mA current. A water clear lens protects
the diode array. Series SML5050 LEDs broaden the illumination options available
for back lighting computer panels, handheld instruments like PDAs, data- and tele-communication
status indicators, etc.
