Molex Custom LED Circuit Assemblies Offer Wide Range Of High Volume Production Design Options

Molex Incorporated has ramped up engineering and production to bring custom LED circuit assemblies into a broader range of electronic products – from appliances and computers to automotive and consumer electronics. Molex LED solutions on printed circuit board (PCB) substrates are designed to meet high volume manufacturing requirements in automotive, consumer, medical, military/aerospace, telecommunications, transportation and industrial equipment applications.

“For over two decades Molex has specialized in designing and manufacturing complex PCB assemblies to solve LED design, lighting, assembly and manufacturing challenges,” says Mike O’Sullivan, director of PCBA, Molex.  “Whether it is a small indicator board or a complete automotive LED module, we work closely with customers to ensure selection of the right materials and LED board design to optimize cost and lighting performance.”

Molex LED assemblies feature rigid circuit boards as well as polyester and polyimide flexible circuit substrates to provide 3D lighting effects in cutting-edge designs and to reduce weight and thickness.  Molex uses proprietary bonding techniques to attach LEDs to flexible polyester circuitry, providing a cost-effective, durable, lightweight, low profile option for adding simple electronic components.  Integrating LED circuitry with a graphic overlay or a Molex membrane switch can provide a total user interface with numerous options to enhance application features.  Molex polyimide LED circuits circuit assemblies offer the robustness of a PCB assembly, with reduced weight and reduced thickness for tight spaces and harsh environments, while enabling customers to incorporate the flexibility and artistic benefits of 3D effects into LED designs.

“Molex can cater to short design cycles and quickly move into volume production,” adds O’Sullivan.  “Our team brings a proven record and unparalleled design experience in electrical, mechanical, thermal, optical, overmolding and reliability – to deliver a fully qualified LED package.”

Prior to shipment, each LED circuit assembly is tested for intensity and color to ensure quality and consistency.  A bin control system regulates consistent lot-by-lot luminosity output ranges.  LED package solutions are manufactured in Molex ISO-certified facilities.  For more information about custom LED circuit assemblies, please visit www.molex.com/link/ledassemblies.html.  To receive information on other Molex products and industry solutions, please sign up for our e-nouncement newsletter
