LED - Discrete Devices

Updated
29-XI-2014
This page features the category of Discrete LED lamps - in other words an individual LED Emitter on its own, consisting of a single semiconductor die or multiple dice encapsulated in the necessary packaging materials. Owing to the typically low output of discrete LED emitters, multiple such devices are often combined in a single lamp. They may additionally require other optical, thermal, mechanical and electronic components for their satisfactory operation. Lamps that contain a plurality of LED emitters, or consist of LEDs combined with other functional components can be found under the separate section of Integrated LED Lamps.
