Tri-Color PCB LEDs Solve Space Problem

TORRANCE, CA – January 22, 1999 – Now you can replace up to six single-color PCBs with one compact 3mm tri-color PCB LED from LEDtronics®, Inc., available in single or bi-level packaging.

One LEDtronics three-lead tri-color right angle PCB LED replaces three single-colored red, green or yellow LEDs or one two-lead, two-color LED. These LEDs are available in a 3mm package that operates at 20 mA or less. This type of low-profile packaging permits very consistent linear multiple LED alignment for precise side-by-side, high-density packaging applications. The LEDs are available with viewing angles of 40 or 130 degrees of high-intensity illumination, with cylindrical or dome lenses for flush mount or through-hole face-plate application.

LEDtronics®’ tri-color right angle PCB LED is ideal for consumer, industrial, data communications, telecommunications, aerospace and military circuit board applications, including integrated circuit board design requiring high reliability status or logic indicators.

The low-profile 3mm design withstands the temperature abuse of today’s industry standard reflow processes as well as the higher temperature rigors of solder reflow equipment. The housing is made of black nylon that meets UL94V-0 and Bellcore flammability specifications.

Available colors are green, yellow and high-efficiency red. Special options include sunlight visible ultrabright colors, low current (2mA) LEDs, or clear illuminators. A 5mm version is also available.

LEDtronics®’ LEDs are very reliable, with an average life of 100,000 hours or more, and offer high intensity luminescence with low power consumption. These LEDs are solid-state, resistant to shock and vibration and offer the fast turn-on/turn-off needed for integrated circuit compatibility.

The 3mm right angle tri-color PCB LEDs from LEDtronics® are available in production quantities in four to six weeks with samples available to qualified customers in one to two weeks. Pricing for a single-level PCB LED is $0.55 in quantities of 1,000 and pricing for bi-level PCB LEDs is $0.98 in quantities of 1,000.
