Agilent Technologies recently introduced two side-firing, tricolor surface-mount LEDs intended for use in handheld
devices. These new LEDs will let PDA and cellphone makers mix separate red, green and blue light sources in any
combination, meaning status indicators and the like will have jazzier blinkin' lights than ever before. The devices are
available now with the Agilent HSMF-C113 priced at $0.58 each, and the HSMF-C115 at $1.00 each — in 1,000-piece
quantities, that is.
