Modular edge lighting utilizing the company’s patented MicroLens light-extraction technology provides efficient LED-based edge lighting technology for today’s flat-panel displays. The technology brings molded-in optics, higher brightness (more output/watt), thinner construction, and a scalable design to illumination of LCDs from <1 in. to >50 in. diagonal, using high-brightness LEDs (HBLEDs) as the light source. The light-extraction technology’s molded light guides enable edge-lit backlighting performance, which reduces the high cost, thickness, and power consumption associated with traditional direct backlighting methods that use an LED array beneath the display. Applications include LCD and keypad backlights for mobile phones, MP3 players, camcorders, digital cameras, PDAs, GPS devices, handheld games, portable DVD players, scanners, automotive interior displays, programmable touch screen thermostats, home-security system controllers, fish finders, instrumentation and control displays, handheld computers, notebook computers, desktop computers, and LCD televisions.
