MICRO SIDE LEDS
Apr 2005OSRAM Opto Semiconductors Inc.Request Info
White micro side LEDs that measure 0.8 mm high and that feature electrostatic discharge protection have been launched by Osram Opto Semiconductors. Applications for the surface-mount modules include displays on small mobile terminals, such as phones, PDAs and handheld devices. The InGaN-based chip is manufactured using thin-film technology. With an operating current of 20 mA, the micro side LEDs produce 800 millicandela. In these next-generation devices, silicone has replaced epoxy resin as the encapsulation material. The company says that it ages more slowly and that it increases LED life by a factor of 10.
