LEDs Enable Manufacture of Ultra-Thin LCDs

Measuring just 3 × 3 × 1.6 mm, the two white versions of the OSLON LX LEDs are ideal for side injection into light guides with a thickness of 2 to 4 mm. Thanks to the optimized lens, the light can be injected into light guides efficiently. This enables the manufacture of ultra-thin and uniform displays with LEDs mounted along one edge only. The compact LED format and the high light output of typically 75 or 90 lm at 350 mA is sufficient to inject the light from two edges or even from only one side to provide uniform backlighting for monitors up to 65 in. diagonal in size.
