Components: Tiny Ultra-Bright Multicolor LEDs Feature 13- To 80-mcd Outputs

The SMD 0603 TLM series of LEDs offers high brightness levels of 13 to 80 mcd in six colors (super red, orange, yellow, green, pure green, and blue) in a tiny 0603 form factor that's 1.6 by 0.8 by 0.6 mm. Built from aluminum-indium-gallium-phosphide (AlInGaP) and gallium-nitride (GaN) technologies, they feature low power consumption and can withstand electrostatic-discharge voltages up to 1 kV. All six color LEDs ensure even lighting levels with a luminous intensity ratio of 1.6 or less per unit. They're packaged in a lead-frame base and embedded in a clear epoxy. The 80° angle of half-intensity provides an extremely wide 160° viewing angle. In 100,000-piece quantities, pricing starts at $5, $6.50, and $17.50 per 100 units, depending on color.
