JKL’s expansion of its ZSM surface-mount LED series makes the components significant contenders in a larger range of markets while their size and optical range make them desirable for LCD backlighting chores. The ZSM LED’s come in both, top- and side-view packages with profiles as low as 0.6 mm and outputs as high as 13,700 mcd. They are available on reels for automatic placement to printed circuit boards for rails in LCD lighting or rear and edge illuminated panels. JKL COMPONENTS CORP., Pacoima, CA. (800) 421-7244.
