TORRANCE, CA — February 26, 2000 — LEDtronics announces the availability of its new CardLED™, an innovative compact LED - PC card assembly that fulfills the demand for supplying data traffic information while meeting the challenges posed by today’s space-limited networking and telecommunication environments. Select from two CardLED models: (1) PCB-1370 that has 16 LEDs configured in two rows of eight, and measures .61 x 1.75 inches; and (2) PCB-1344 that features 32 LEDs configured in four rows of eight, and measures 1.029 x 1.75 inches.

Additionally, CardLED has two 5mm bi-color LEDs mounted on the PC board. Compact and full featured, CardLED is the ideal LED package for designers, engineers and manufacturers of today’s high-end telecommunications and networking products, such as network hubs, routers, bridges and frame-relays that require device port status indicators and have only limited space within the enclosure. CardLED is available with LEDtronics unique LongLED 3mm LEDs. LongLEDs are single-piece, extended body LEDs that eliminate the need to add plastic spacers to support the LEDs. CardLED can be ordered with either single-colored LEDs or with bi-color LongLED LEDs.

CardLED assemblies may be configured with LEDs of a single color or with LEDs of several colors for qualified customers. Standard colors available are Red, Yellow and Green, but custom colors (Orange, Pure Green, Blue and White) that may better complement your design may be ordered. LED lenses can be colored, milky white or clear. Depending on the color of the LED, brightness ranges from 10 – 18 typical mcd at 20 mAs. For each LED in the package, there is a single common contact point for negative (cathode) and one contact point for each LED positive (anode) which comes with either a 40-leaded dip socket or edge-card connector.

Solid-state design renders CardLED impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. CardLED is excellent choice for a wide range of display, fault or status indicators that require easy-to-read measurements such as readouts that indicate data traffic port conditions. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), CardLED operates reliably year after year.

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 and Infrared (IR) LEDs.

Prices for CardLED™ ranges from $13.45 - $17.35 each in quantities of 1,000 depending on the choice of LED color and CardLED model type. For qualified customers, CardLED samples are available to meet your design requirements.
