A Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a semiconductor that emits a light when electronically biased in a forward direction of a p-n junction. LEDs are used as light indicators on electronic devices and as a source of smart lighting. 1-Source Electronic Components LED suppliers and LED distributors carries all types of light emitting diodes including LED lights and laser diodes.
LED lights have several advantages over traditional light sources. They don't have a filament that will burn out, so they have a longer lifetime. Additionally, their small plastic bulb makes them a lot more durable. They also fit more easily into modern electronic circuits. The biggest selling point of LED lights are efficiency. With light emitting diodes a much higher percentage of the electrical power is going directly to generating light, which cuts down on electricity demands considerably.
Light Emitting Diodes are used in virtually every industry, and are found in all kinds of devices. LED lights are used in remote controls and optical mice, light up clocks and watches, and tell you when your electronic devices and appliances are turned on. Grouped together, they can form images on a jumbo television screen or illuminate a traffic light.
Up until recently, LED lights were too expensive to use for most lighting applications because they're built around advanced semiconductor material. The price of semiconductor devices has gone down over the past decade, however, making LED lights a much more cost-effective lighting option for a wide range of situations. While they may be more expensive than incandescent lights up front, their longer lifetime can make them a better buy in the long run. In the future, they will play an even bigger role in the world of technology.
