Interconnections & Packaging: White LED Light Guides For 3G Cell Phones Up Backlighting Efficiency

The MicroLens family of molded white LED light guides provides bright, efficient, and cost-effective backlighting for 3G cell phones. These guides feature enhanced brightness (up to 10,000 nits), crisper colors, extreme thinness (0.65 mm), lower power consumption, and more efficient use of white LEDs. Features can be designed into the backlight, and the LEDs can attach directly to a flex circuit and be molded into the backlight. They can be custom designed to any size, including 1-, 1.5-, 1.8-, and 2-in. diagonal. The light guide with back reflector, frame, brightness-enhancement films, diffuser, and mask ranges from $0.95 to $1.25 in production quantities.
