The hyper red source color devices are made with Al-GaInP on GaAs substrate LED. The green source color devices are made with AlGaInP on GaAs substrate LED. With just 2.0x1.25x1.1mm, the device is extraordinarily compact. The device meets moisture sensitivity level 3. These features make it ideal for use in display backlight and indicator applications.

The KPB-2012SURKCGKC is obtainable from distributor Setron GmbH (Braunschweig, Germany). For more information, contact
