Bright colored wall led display

LED or Light Emitting Diodes has practically taken over the world from both home and commercial perspectives and according to LED industry leaders such as Street Communication LED lights has become the lighting technology of choice the world over. This comes as no surprise simply because LED is undoubtedly far superior compared to older incandescent and fluorescent lights in terms of efficiency and longevity.

The ground or traction that it has gained in just the last decade in commercial and industrial settings is a testament of just how well it has been received. The technological barriers that existed for industries to be innovative in designing light products have been completely eradicated due to the versatile and flexible nature of LED lights. This article examines the SMD LEDs more closely from a technical perspective prior to moving towards the various possible applications of SMD LEDs based on the revelations made by a tech wizard from the well-known LED solution provider Street Communication.

What is SMD LED?

SMD is basically an abbreviation for Surface Mounted Devices which in essence is a kind of high powered LED lights. The unique characteristic of SMDs is that it has no wires which make it less of a fuss for seamless applications. The SMDs consist of tiny metallic contacts that are soldered to circuit boards directly. Companies such as Street Communication offer a wide variety of SMD LEDs that are not just energy-efficient, robust and versatile, but also provide superior lighting experience for users. Among the various types of LEDs the most frequently used LED chip according to Street Communication is the top-emitting chip due to the fact that SMD LEDs are able to provide and cater for most lighting needs (Mainly for portable consumer electronics, indicator applications and backlighting). There are also categories such as the PLCC SMD LED series that provide high intensity and are reliable making them one of Street Communication’s best sellers. These SMD LED series are offered in a range of colours and combinations of colour, different sizes and shapes, not to mention viewing angles.

The fact that these LEDs are angled and yet are able to provide lighting with sufficient intensity at precise angles ensures accurate angle illumination (mounting direction). Available in a motley of colours and as well as dimensions, SMD LEDs are also manufactured in single, bi-colour and even tri-colour combinations and used for backlighting, market lighting and more. It is this feature of SMD LEDs and the range of dimensions and configurations that allow SMD LED to be applied for a variety of circumstances. Another type of SMD LED known as sub-miniature SMDs which also consist of numerous configurations which include the z-bend, the gull wing and yoke are commonly used for status indication and last longer than most other ‘indicator modules’. The reverse mount lines of SMD LED that Street Communication has are for specific lighting applications for small cut-out holes that not only consume lesser power, extremely robust, reliable and have level 3 moisture sensitivity, they could also be customised in a variety of ways adding even more flexibility to product lines that use these LED lights.

Applications

The high level of brightness of SMD LEDs and full-colour combinations make them perfect for video signage regardless of the surrounding lighting due to the luminous intensity. According to the tech wizards at street communication, it is the full-colour range, high brightness and luminous intensity that make SMD LEDs perfect for video signage more than anything else. Of course, the fact that this LED product range is also highly configurable makes it versatile and flexible adding to the products value significantly. Videos used as signage usually require robust products that are able to withstand the barrage of the environment and the best candidate to take on this challenge according to Street Communication are products that use SMD LEDs.
