New high brightness surface mount LEDs - exclusive to Rapid

A new range of high brightness LEDs from TruOpto has been introduced by Rapid. The LEDs are housed in industry standard PLCC-2 and PLCC-4 cases with luminous intensities of up to 750 millicandela.

PLCC-2 cases measuring 3.5 x 2.7 x 1.9mm house single colour LEDs available in red, yellow, blue, green and white. The PLCC-4 option (3.5 x 2.8 x 1.9mm) houses a red, green and a blue chip and by varying the current across the dice, all colours of the spectrum can be achieved.

Their compact size, high brightness and wide viewing angle (120°) lend them to a wide range of applications in both indication and illumination. They are suitable for consumer, industrial and automotive applications such as small area illumination, back lighting, dashboard lighting and traffic signals.
The LEDs are available from Rapid individually and in full reels of 2000 for automated placement. For more details see www.rapidonline.com and search by order code 56-3000 (RGB) and 56-2992 for single colour LEDs.
