TORRANCE, CA — July 5, 2005 — LEDtronics introduces the SML5050RBG1K-TR — a low profile, surface mount full-spectrum Red, Green and Blue LED (RGB LED). These discrete LEDs provide excellent performance and terrific visibility in a compact size of only 5.5mm x 5.5mm. 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 620nm and a maximum 630nm. The wavelength of the green diode is between a minimum of 520nm and a maximum of 535nm. Blue operates between 460nm and 475nm. Depending on the color, luminous intensities range from 150 mcd to 500 mcd at 20 mA current. A water clear lens protects the diode array.

Use SML5050RGB LEDs 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 SML5050RGB LEDs effective tools in cutting costs in PCB assembly while maintaining product integrity. Series SML5050 LEDs broaden the illumination options available for back lighting computer panels, handheld instruments like PDAs, data- and tele-communication status indicators, etc. 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.
