SMD LEDS

Nicomatic Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are extremely thin – with a height of 0.5mm or 0.35mm to select from – and in a total size of 3.2 x 1.6 x 0.5mm or 0.35mm (3.2 x 2.5 x 0.5mm or 0.35mm in bi-color). They are an ideal choice for membrane switches as their small height reduces the thickness of the layer and eliminates embossing, which in turns decreases the cost of the membrane switch total construction.

General features:

  • Easy to place standard package (1206 & 1210 for bicolor)
  • Reel with 8mm or 12mm dimension for P&P automatic devices
  • Available mostly from stock
  • Can be run at low currents
  • ESD value at 2000V for 0.35mm LEDs
  • 18 P/Ns to choose from
  • Use temperature from -30°C to +80°C
  • Shelf life of minimum 12 months in sealed bag
ESD Issues for LED Placements on Membrane Switches
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can cause damage to unprotected electronic devices even when the discharge can be at times imperceptible. Even though all LEDs are susceptible to ESD damage it is the GaN based LEDs (blue, white and some green colors) that are more sensitive to surge voltages caused...
