Lumitex Inc. has released its plastic rod light guides with an LED light source and wiring harness to provide designers with a "plug n' play" solution. The rods are available in 25.4mm to 9.14mm profiles with diameters ranging from 2.54mm to 25.4mm. They provide high directional illumination with excellent uniformity and consume 20mA to 25mA of current.

The products also offer better durability than neon and CCFL-backlit LCDs, and operate at a lower voltage/current. In addition, Lumitex can mold in mechanical features that assist in the positioning or locating of the light guide assembly.

Walter Schulz, Applications Engineer at Lumitex, said, "The rods can be used for illumination, backlighting or accent lighting for anything from the control panel of a 64-inch diagonal HDTV or other audio/visual product to a handheld remote control device to portable test equipment."

The rods are available at $1 each.
