World's Smallest LED Goes Into Production: The PicoLED

Energy efficient LEDs are starting to crop up everywhere, and adding fuel to this fire are the new applications being opened up by miniature LEDs. Kyoto-based electronic component creator, Rohm, announced today that the world’s smallest LED, the PicoLED will go into mass production in April. The company aim to create 10 million of the tiny 1.0 x 0.8mm diodes every single month. Currently, the smallest LED is one that measures 1.6 x 0.8mm. Both LEDs are only 0.2mm thick. If you happen to be an electronics giant then you can get a sample this month only for 100 yen each. :: Via Plastic Bamboo
