Suitable for backlighting 5- to 20-in. LCDs, the CERAMOS reflector LED provides high brightness and power in a small package measuring 2.3 by 3.2 by 0.8 mm. This product, designed by Osram Opto Semiconductor, is suited for light-guide-based backlighting in high ambient light conditions, the component fits into light guides as thin as 2 mm. This feature also makes it viable for edge lighting in LCD TVs and monitors. The LED employ's patented ThinGaN LED technology that enables it to operate at 70 lumens per Watt at 80 mA with a lifespan of 50,000 hours. Additionally, its SMD ceramic package handles operating temperatures up to 150°C and is compatible with standard surface-mount processes. Other applications include camera flash and strobe lighting, reading lamps in aircraft, cars, and buses, decorative and entertainment lighting, and signage or marker lights.
