Surface Mount LEDs are cost-efficient solutions for low-power, compact designs. The products come in a variety of available color, lens, and package types and are highly durable.
Surface Mount LEDs are smaller than leaded components, making them ideal for space-limited board sizes and equipment. They are also highly resistant to shock and vibration and are available in packages with a considerably higher number of pins than leaded LEDs.
The light weight of Surface Mount LEDs makes them optimal for mobile appliances. They are also ideally suited for RF applications because of their low levels of parasitic inductance and capacitance.
