SMD LED stands for surface mount LED. Specifically, it’s a light-emitting diode that is mounted onto and soldered onto a circuit board. An SMD LED is quite small since it has no leads or surrounding packaging that comes with a standard LED. This means it’s best handled, not by a human, but by automated assembly equipment. An SMD LED also has a wide viewing angle, thanks to the fact that it does not have the standard LED’s epoxy enclosure that focuses the beam.
The SMD LED gives off very little heat. It also has a low voltage and current requirements. Like a standard light emitting diode, a surface mount LED gives off almost no heat. It also typically has similar low voltage and low current requirements. They are commonly used to indicate device status on computer motherboards, routers, hard drives, USB flash drives and any other application where physical space is at a premium. Computer motherboards, hard drives, routers, flash drives and other applications where there’s no room for larger technology are also common uses.
All JERAGH LIGHTING products are manufactured with latest SMD LED components and COB LED components according to highest quality standards in China & UK.
Organic LEDs (OLEDs) are light emitting panels made from organic carbon based materials that emit light when electricity is applied.
OLEDs have been used in television and mobile phone industry for years but have not been very popular in the lighting industry until recently. With its flexibility and glowing surface, OLEDs have captured the attention of some Lighting Manufacturers and Designers and
