Global Lighting Technologies announces it MicroLens edge-lighting modules that provide white LED backlighting for LCDs that serves a multitude of functions with a minimum of LEDs for a range of display applications. In addition to bright, uniform white LED backlighting from an ultra-thin, low-power package, these light guides can provide discrete area backlighting for different parts of the display, including backlighting of the LCD, overlays (characters, logos), buttons and keypads. Raised mechanical features are designed into the light guide for positioning the LCD, as well as a slotted Zebra strip holder for connection between the elastomeric connector and the PC board. Illumination can range from straight backlighting of the LCD, characters and symbols to a “halo” effect around the keypad buttons.
