Low Profile ChipLED

Currently Viewing:

    The HSMC-C197 ChipLED is design specifically for the membrane switch application. The request is to have the height as low as possible while retaining the footprint at the optimal size of a 0805 (2.0 x 1.25 mm) device. Apart from the membrane switch application, the HSMC-C197 is also suitable for use in application whereby low height is required
    The part is intensity binned. They come in 8 mm tape and 7 inch diameter reel with 4000 units per reel which makes them compatible for automatic placement.
