Don´t let yourself get confused by miniature dimensions - small SMT LEDs produce surprisingly strong light.

SMT LEDs enjoy a big popularity because of their size but also thanks to a fast and simple assembly to PCB on automatic machines. In comparison to wire-leaded types, a vast majority of SMT LEDs doesn´t contain optics, thus radiating in a wide beam angle. That´s why is their light visible even from wide viewing angles and at the same time it enables to easily reach a uniform backlight of panels, displays, …
From the smallest SMT LEDs you can find in our store sizes „0603“ (KP-1608) and „0805“ (KP2012) from company Kingbright. Particularly in the Kingbright. Particularly in the KP-2012 series can be found several types with a luminous intensity in the order of hundreds mCd. A novelty in the Kingbright portfolio are series SR-J4 (640 nm - red) and series ZGK (525 nm - green) comprising LEDs of various dimensions. For example the new type KP-2012SRC-J4 (640 nm) has a luminous intensity of up to 600 mCd (@20mA).
In general, all KP series LEDs are low-profile (thin), but at extreme space requirements, the solution exists in an ultra-thin version KPT (only 0.75 mm height - KPT2012).
Naturally, it´s not always necessary to have a high light output (for example at indoor usage), that´s why at several types can be found a version with a higher and also with a lower luminous intensity, what is usually also reflected in a price of a given type. In stock we keep the most requested types suitable for majority of applications. Should you have interest in types which we don´t keep in stock, please don´t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
