Surface mount LEDs feature space saving design

17 July 2002 Opto-Electronics

BivarOpto has introduced surface mount LEDs that feature uniquely shaped pixel lenses that provide a wider viewing angle in a discrete surface mount configuration. According to the company, the new Pix-Tek LEDs feature a patented technology that offers all the advantages of through-hole discrete indicators without the compromises typically associated with surface mounting.

Providing increased space and labour saving economies over traditional through-hole mounting, the pixel design incorporates standard through-hole geometry that narrows the radiation patterns and eliminates light loss. The Pix-Tek LEDs are suited for moving message signs, general indication and backlighting or any application where a 5 mm LED would be desirable, while offering unique high-density, high visibility display.

The 5 mm square and 5 mm round packages feature distinctly different directive characteristics and 50° and 25° viewing angles respectively. The LEDs are available in a range of colours (wavelengths from 400 nm to 660 nm) including BivarOpto's new RGB, white and ultraviolet (UV).
