LED Assembly

The growth rate of LED Assembly related technologies has been on an exponential and continuous rise among end-users, developers and manufacturers. The popularity is a result of low energy consumption, high-efficiency, versatility in design and applications, and small dimensions. A variety of companies specialize in the design, manufacture and assembly of systems based on light-emitting diodes (LED), with a focus on Solid State Lighting technology.

LED Assembly consists of the selection, placement and soldering of light-emitting diodes in an arrangement that will eventually produce a functional electronic product. The assembly may be manufactured in an automated or manual fashion. In manual (hand) assembly, skilled technicians use precision to place LED components individually onto circuit boards by way of specialized tools. Automated LED Assembly utilizes Surface-Mount Technology (SMT) equipment to place thousands of LED's onto printed circuit boards in an efficient, precise manner.

Benefits of LED Assembly

Automated LED Assembly reduces labor costs while maximizing production rates.

In electronic manufacturing, the primary benefits of LED's include the small size and ease of assembly.

Commercial and consumer electronics products are designed keeping in mind "green technology" and reduced carbon emissions. The components of LED Assemblies provide high power efficiency and high output (brightness), while being more environmentally-friendly than traditional lighting counterparts.

For illumination, LED Assembly is also judges to be superior to other forms of lighting in terms of cost-effectiveness.

LED-based lighting systems can last up to 50 times longer than other forms of lighting technology.

Applications of LED Assembly

The applications that utilize LED Assembly technologies are potentially limitless. Almost every industry incorporates LED's into the products they create and LED component manufacturers have been met with increasing demand in the LED component market globally.

As one example, high brightness LED components are currently seeing a major increase in usage for backlighting in televisions, as a replacement for the prior standard (CCFL technology).
