DSM Series surface mount, single-digit display provides cost savings and innovative design opportunities due to its minimum thickness of 0.083” (2.10mm).
SAN DIEGO, CA (November 12, 2015) — VCC, the global leader in indication and specialty illumination solutions, is launching a lightweight, ultra thin seven-segment LED display. The surface mountable DSM Series single-digit display utilizes patented technology to deliver a thickness of only 0.083” (2.10mm). By reducing the required thickness of a printed circuit board, the DSM Series delivers significant cost savings and expanded design opportunities. The DSM Series supports top mount and reverse mount applications, offering additional design flexibility.
The ultra thin seven-segment LED display is ideal for a wide range of applications including, appliances, automation & controls, industrial devices, food preparation equipment, light control, medical devices, people movers, telecom, transportation, white goods and more.
The low-current, low-power design delivers a bright light output with optimal visual appearance. The rugged, highly reliable DSM Series single-digit LED display is rated to a Moisture Sensitive Level (MSL) of 2a, and offers a life expectancy of more than 100,000 hours.
The DSM Series is available in four different digit heights, including 0.20, 0.30, 0,56 or 0.70 inch, and super bright red or pure green colors.
“By employing exclusive patented technology, we were able to create the smallest sevensegment LED display on the market, that offers lower power consumption, brighter light output and more design flexibility than competing products,” said Sannah Vinding, Director of Product Development and Marketing at VCC. “The DSM Series is technically and mechanically ruggedized for a wide range of applications.”
Packaged in tape and reel for automated SMT manufacturing to reduce production time and cost, the DSM Series also easily mounts to PCBs or sockets to simplify assembly.
