CCFL Sub-Miniature Lamps


CCFL’s (cold-cathode fluorescent lamps) are strongly used for backlighting information and entertainment displays.

Fluorescent lamp-ends consume valuable power, generate heat, and cause shadows. They require lamp holders and must be concealed. One U-lamp can replace two straight lamps, eliminate two lamp-ends, and provide the same amount of light with less wattage. There is less wiring as well as fewer dark ends and lamp connectors to be hidden.

Ballast design and dimming circuitry is simplified with fewer lamps and the display area can be made larger in comparison to the overall case size. Bent lamps with fewer lamp-ends tremendously improve efficiency of liquid crystal displays.

Sub-miniature fluorescent lamps are engineered and manufactured with the most advanced state-of-the art technology. In addition to being able to supply custom designed bent lamps and standard straight replacement lamps for all popular laptop computers, LCD Lighting is able to provide almost all replacement wiring harnesses, connectors, heaters, and heater assemblies.
