Lumex believes it has introduced the world’s first surface mountable 7-segment numeric LED display.

Lumex Inc. believes it has introduced the world’s first surface mountable 7-segment numeric LED display.

Lumex claims the device makes possible, for the first time, the design and construction of equipment and instrumentation with numeric LED readouts – on surface mount technology boards and manufacturing processes.

The new display is based on a low profile insert moulded flat lead frame package that stands 3.3mm off the surface of the circuit board. The package measures 19mm high by 12.7mm wide, with a 14.22mm high numeric character.

Each of the seven segments is individually addressable to create all digits from 0 through 9, plus several additional characters. A trailing decimal point is also included.

Light output levels are said to be as high as 3200mcd with a forward current of 10mA. Units can be ordered with a choice of common cathode or common anode configurations.

Custom versions of the 7-segment numeric SMT LED display are also available.
