Corsair puts tiny LED into RGB DRAM

With new LED design

During the last years, we have seen several products sport numerous RGB LEDs all over the PCB. Although the LEDs are rather small, they still require some space across the board. In order to make things easier and more compact, Corsair is going to use smaller "capellix" LEDs for their upcoming products.



At the CES 2019, the company had some samples in its suite showing the differences in the LEDs. As you can see from the picture posted below, there's a standard lighting strip at the top of the photo and the smaller LEDs in the bottom. According to Corsair, the new LEDs are 40% brighter than standard SMD LEDs. Since the LEDs are smaller, they also produce a more blended glow through translucent materials.

Corsair isn't manufacturing these tiny LEDs, but it's working side by side with the company that creates them. It's unclear if Corsair is throwing some cash or helping them with engineering advices. Anytime soon we might see new Corsair products with tiny RGB LEDs.
