Brighter, crisper, and smaller
These guides are used for backlighting displays in a number of applications from digital still camera and camcorder microdisplays to Gen 3 mobile phone displays to desktop monitors. Brighter than other LED-based backlighting systems, they come in sizes from 0.24-inch diagonal to 15.4-inch diagonal, in single LED monochrome, bi-color or tri-color backlights. The MicroLens pixel-based light extraction technology makes the LEDs brighter, crisper, and as thin as 0.60 mm or smaller. They only consume about 1-20 mA @ 3.5V, and are about 80-85 percent uniform on average. Mechanical holding features can either be built into the backlight or onto a custom-designed backlight frame. Prices vary, but simple single-LED backlights can cost as little as $1 or less in quantity.
