Agilent Technologies Introduces Tricolor LEDs for Backlighting
Agilent Technologies introduced two side-firing, tricolor surface-mount LEDs (light-emitting diodes) that permit handset and PDA designers to mix separate red, green and blue light sources in any combination, reports a Chinese paper.
"The devices are intended primarily for backlighting and status indicators in handheld devices, such as mobile phones and PDAs.
In handsets and other handheld devices, separate colors can indicate incoming text messages, e-mail and stock news. They can even identify different callers. The availability of an unlimited range of illumination colors provides a new degree of design flexibility in many other applications".
