Nichia announced the development of surface-mount white LEDs that have a luminous intensity 50 percent higher than their current products. The increased brightness results from a more efficient conversion of electricity to emitted white light.

Full-color LCD screens that require a white light source are found in battery-powered mobile devices such as PDAs, handheld video cameras and cellular phones. As a backlight source, white LEDs offer the advantages of compact size, durability, lower power consumption and a longer lifespan.

The white LED will be included in the company's NSCW215 series of side-view surface-mount LED. The 1mm LED emits 600mcd of light.
