What is an LED Strip Light?

An LED strip light (also known as an LED tape or ribbon light) is a flexible circuit board populated by surface mounted light-emitting diodes (SMD LEDs) and other components that usually comes with an adhesive backing.

LED Strip Light Material

The led strip light is usually composed of flexible pcb, SMD leds, chip resistors and 3M double-sided tape.

Flexible pcb(flexible circuit board) which consists a thin insulating polymer film having conductive circuit patterns affixed thereto and typically supplied with a thin polymer coating to protect the conductor circuits. It plays a very important role as substrate for the led strip light, the pcb length is approx 500mm, and the pcb width is from 5mm to 12mm base on design of led strip light.

SMD led,SMD stands for Surface Mounted Devices, SMD LED is a special type of high power LED lights. With no wires, these devices provide less fuss and with seamless application. Instead, SMDs have tiny metallic contacts that can be directly soldered to circuit boards. This is a better technology than the first generation DIP LEDs. The SMD type LEDs are mounted on an aluminum substrate or flexible circuit board and enveloped in an epoxy resin. The packages of SMD led for led strip light have 2835, 3528, 5050, 5050RGB, 5050WRGB and so on.

Chip resistor,Chip resistors are integrated circuit (IC) devices manufactured in square or rectangular chip packages. Resistors are components that oppose the flow of electrical current. They can be used to protect, operate, or control circuits. Resistors can have a fixed value of resistance, or they may be variable or adjustable within a certain range. As passive components, resistors can only reduce voltage or current signals and cannot increase them. Resistors — particularly chip resistors — make up the building blocks of many modern electronic devices.The packages of chip resistor for led strip light have 0603,0805,1206,1210 and so on.

3M tape, A double sided tape has pressure-sensitive adhesive exposed on both sides, allowing two parts to be bonded together by the tape between them. It is packed by 50 meters in one reel with various width.

LED Strip Light Applications?

Traditionally, strip lights had been used solely in accent lighting, backlighting, task lighting, and decorative lighting applications. Increased luminous efficacy and higher-power SMDs have allowed LED strip lights to be used in applications such as high brightness task lighting, fluorescent and halogen lighting fixture replacements, indirect lighting applications, Ultra Violet inspection during manufacturing processes, set and costume design, and even growing plants.
