Lumex has launched its surface-mounted QuasarBrite 0404 RGB LEDs in a compact package measuring 1 x 1 x 0.25 mm. They are suitable for use in multicolor LED indicator applications in restricted spaces. The devices combine good visual performance and low energy requirements. Applications include communications equipment (servers, networks, gateways, headsets, phone equipment, handheld communication devices); personal electronics (cell phone indicators, backlights for display screens and keypads); portable medical devices (defibrillators, pulse oximeters, glucometers); and backlighting for LCDs, switches and decorative lighting. The LEDs produce bright colors and a 120° viewing angle.
