Farnell and Würth Elektronik sign exclusive LED agreement

Farnell element14 will exclusively stock Würth Elektronik's new range of LEDs
LED's primary applications are as signals for status indication in electronic equipment and in the industrial electronics sector.

But they are also used in many other applications such as scoreboards, keyboards, display panels, vending machines, audio and HiFi equipment, toys, background lighting for mobile applications.

Würth Elektronik says its LED's advantages include low energy consumption, high reliability, low current, and fast switching times. Also with design flexibility and no UV/IR radiation, the compact devices are ideal for miniature applications. They also offer different radiation angles and colours.

Lars Fahrbach, Global Distribution Manager of Würth Elektronik, says, "We are very happy to cooperate with our partners at Farnell element14 with the launch of our exciting new range of LEDs."

Fahrbach continues, "After entering the semiconductor sector with TVS diodes four years ago, this sector has now been expanded with the manufacture of LEDs. The focus is on SMD components and additional to the classic single-colour components, various bi-colour and full colour (RGB) components are available. Our new range also includes different reverse-mount LEDs, side LEDs (90°) as well as selected THT types."

Mike Buffham, Global Head of Product and Pricing, Farnell element14, adds "We are pleased to partner with Würth Elektronik to launch its new range of LEDs, which offers a well balanced range with exceptional value for our customers."
