LED PCB --A Novel Innovation In LED Technology

With the rapid development of electronic and communication technology, the PCB becomes more and more widespread and important.While essential in computers, medical and even automotive, not all PCB are the same, such as LED PCB. Certain applications require specific properties in their boards, especially for temperature-sensitive applications, one of which is LED lighting. The LED lighting industry is rapidly expanding in response to interest in more efficient and cost-effective lighting methods, but much of the functionality of LED lights depends on the temperature of their systems.Therefore, the requirements for the PCB are also very strict.

What is the definition of LED PCB ?

Although we may often hear about them, but before understanding the LED PCB, we need to understand the PCB and LED respectively.

what exactly is LED ?

Light-emitting diode, abbreviated as LED, is a commonly used light-emitting device that releases energy to emit light by compounding electrons and holes, and it is widely used in the field of lighting. Light-emitting diodes can efficiently convert electrical energy into light energy and have a wide range of uses in modern society, such as lighting, flat panel displays, medical devices, etc.

What is PCB ?

PCB, Printed Circuit Board, is an important electronic component, the support body of electronic components, is the carrier of electronic components electrical interconnection. It is a multi-layer circuit board that has conductive traces on one side and copper traces on the other. The copper traces are connected to the components such as resistors, capacitors, and transistors. The conductive traces are connected at regular intervals in a way that electricity can flow to every point on the circuit board.

What is LED PCB ?

In short, a PCB with LED components is usually called as “LED PCB”.PCB is an indispensable and important component of LED, and LED has very strict requirements for PCB.LED PCB boards are difficult to cool using traditional methods because it tends to generate a lot of heat. That’s why LED applications often choose metal-core PCB because of their greater heat dissipation capabilities. Aluminum, in particular, is often used to make circuit boards for LED lights. Aluminum PCB often include a thin layer of thermally conductive dielectric material that can transfer and dissipate heat with greater efficiency than traditional rigid PCB.

Besides, LED PCB is a type of LED panel that has a built-in printed circuit board hence called LED circuit board or LED PCB board. These boards are used to connect the LED lights, sensors, and other electronic components. In addition to this, it also provides the necessary power source for these devices.

LED PCB is typically used in portable applications such as those that are battery-powered or portable displays. They can also be used for wall-mountable displays such as televisions and computer monitors.
A basic understanding of how they work is needed before you can start working with them. For example, you will need to know how PCB,and LED work before you can understand how an LED PCB works. The most common types of LED panels used in LED PCB are backlight panels and front light panels.

PCB and LED

What is an LED driver PCB?

LED driver PCB is a printed circuit board that contains the components, including LED driver IC, to drive LED connected in LED bulb circuit board. The LED driver PCB is a part of the LED lighting product, which serves as an interface between the power supply and LED.

The LED driver PCB has an important function in controlling the current flowing through the LED. The LED driver PCB also plays an important role in protecting the LED from overcurrent or overvoltage in an LED bulb circuit board.

How does a PCB work?

A PCB has a large number of components that are connected to it by wires. These components are arranged in such a way that they work together to perform certain functions. For example, an electronic circuit board is used to make electronic devices like calculators and radios work.

The function of a PCB is to provide electrical connections between these components and other parts of the device. The components may be connected by copper wire or by copper-clad material (also known as copper foil). The connections are made through holes in the copper foil or on its surface that are filled with solder paste or solder bumps.

What is aluminium PCB, and will it be used in the LED?

Aluminium PCB is printed circuit boards with a thin coating of conductive dielectric material on them.
Aluminium PCB can be used as a heat sink. Heat sinks work by dissipating the heat generated by electrical components in the circuit through a heat transfer medium such as aluminium. This allows the remaining heat to escape without causing damage to the circuitry or components within it. The aluminium heatsink also transfers its heat to an outer layer of aluminium that can be removed from time to time to expose new cooling fins, thus extending its life and reducing maintenance costs.Aluminium PCB is widely used in the LED lighting industry such as LED lighting housing, LED lighting fixtures, LED light bulbs etc.

LED bulb and PCB

What are the parts of an LED bulb?

The three essential components of a light bulb are the filament, the glass bulb, and the base.

The filament is a thin wire that generates heat and converts electrical energy into light. The filament is located in the centre of an incandescent bulb; it glows with a yellowish tinge.

The glass bulb contains an evacuated area containing air or other gas (usually argon), which focuses the light emitted by a filament onto its surface. The glass bulb is surrounded by a metallic reflector called a reflector cap, which directs some of the emitted light back up toward more distant areas. It also helps to focus the light from the filament in one direction.

The base of an incandescent bulb is made from sheet metal, which helps to support and strengthen it.
The base also has ridges on its surface that radiate outward from its centre and provide additional support for the entire structure. These ridges help conduct heat away from warm surfaces and prevent overheating when lights are left on for long periods.

Which PCB is used in the LED bulb?

Because of its improved capacity to dissipate heat, metal core PCB is commonly employed in LED applications especially in LED PCB board. Aluminium is frequently used to create PCB for LED lights in LED bulb circuit board. Aluminium is more popular than iron or steel because it has a lower melting point and is less corrosive making it a good element to use in a LED PCB.

Aluminium has a lower melting point than iron means that heat can be transferred more easily from one side of the board to another. This makes it ideal for use in high-heat applications like headlights and tail lamps.

Due to its high conductivity and resistance to corrosion, aluminium also works well for making heat-sinks for electronic components such as LED or transistors. This is especially useful when designing smaller boards with less surface area (think about how many chips you could fit onto a single square inch of copper versus how many you could fit on a square inch of aluminium). In addition, because there’s no risk of rusting, these parts will last longer than those made from iron or steel.

What is MCPCB in the LED bulb?

The Metal Core Printed Circuit Board (MCPCB) is a printed circuit board that has a metal core. The MCPCB is used in LED lighting. The MCPCB has an inner layer of copper foil, an outer layer of aluminium foil and a dielectric layer in between them.

The MCPCB can be made of many different kinds of metals like copper, aluminium, gold and silver. The MCPCB is coated with an insulating layer that prevents the metal from contacting each other which makes it possible for diodes to be placed on top of it.
Over the last few years, the Metal Core Printed Circuit Board has been inseparable from the leading industry.

LED circuit board

How do you make an LED circuit board?

To make a LED circuit board, first of all, wrap the positive terminal of your battery with one end of your first wire. Then, plug the opposite end of your first wire into the first row and first column holes on your circuit board. Then, place one end of your resistor in the same row as your wire, but this time in the second column of your circuit board. Now, insert the opposite end of the resistor into the second row and second column hole on your circuit board. Then, plug the LED’s anode (long wire) into the hole on the third row, second column of your circuit board. Insert the LED’s cathode (short wire) into the hole on the third row, the third column of your circuit board. Then, wrap the negative terminal of your battery with one end of your second wire. Finally, plug the opposite end of the second wire into the fourth row, third column hole on your circuit board. You now have a finished LED circuit board, and your light-emitting diode is operational.

How do you test an LED on a circuit board?


The quickest way to test an LED on a circuit board is using the Digital Multimeter. The digital multimeter is a simple, affordable tool that can be used to test different components in your electronics project, from resistors and capacitors to transistors and integrated circuits.

The simplest way to test an LED is by applying a voltage between its cathode and anode pins. If the LED lights up, then it’s working properly. If it doesn’t light up, then you may have a bad LED or one that isn’t connected properly. This device saves so much time and could test your LED bulb circuit board in the blink of an eye.

What factors should be considered when designing LED PCB boards?

LED PCB is made up of numerous layers of materials and are applied with a variety of manufacturing methods. The PCB stack-up is very important in determining the final performance of the LED PCB. The copper traces have to be designed to withstand high bending and shear forces, which can affect the reliability of the LED PCB board.The via types have to be determined according to their design requirements, such as heat sink or direct current (DC) through-hole connections.

When selecting parts for your PCB, you need to consider factors such as maximum temperature rating and/or power dissipation level needed by the part in question. Rules for Design are also important when designing a PCB board; these include power-on criteria, operating temperature range, and signals that need to be passed through the PCB’s leads.

LED PCB

Advantages of LED PCB

There are several advantages of using LED PCB which include:
▄ Lightweight – The light weight of LED PCB allows for easier transportation and installation, which can lead to a lower cost of ownership. The low profile of these products also makes them easier to fit into tight spaces without adding additional support structures.
▄ Lower cost – LED PCB comes in a wide variety of colours, sizes and intensities that can be customized based on your needs. This allows you to save money on design fees by using only the parts you need for each job instead of buying everything at once.
▄ Dust and moisture resistant – If you are looking for a product that can withstand the elements, LED PCB is a great choice because it does not require any special extra materials or protective coatings on top of the board itself. This means less waste during production and in shipping, which can save you money over time as well!

What is the difference between the LED PCB and the other PCP’s?


LED PCB has the advantage of being smaller than regular PCB and requiring less circuitry to operate. Because LED PCB board is often considerably thinner, they are lighter and require less fastening to keep them in place. Besides, it has the potential to be less expensive than standard PCB since they do not require the same number of components to work. They may also be constructed with less expensive materials, like copper-coated laminated boards, because they are smaller and thinner (CCL).

Application scenarios of LED PCB

LED is an efficient, long-lasting light source that provides superior illumination to other types of lighting. LED have been used in many applications, including LED lamps. They can be integrated into many lighting applications, such as car headlights and airport runway landing lights. They are also used in military applications, street lighting, highway tunnel lighting, photovoltaic (solar) lighting, flashlights and lanterns, traffic and signal lighting, hospital operating room lighting and high growth plant lighting.

LED is often used in place of traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs because they offer several advantages over other types of lights. The cost of LED technology has declined significantly over the past decade making them more affordable than ever before. LED bulbs use less energy than incandescent bulbs while maintaining the same brightness output.

LED also has longer life spans than CFL or incandescent bulbs which makes them ideal for outdoor use where longevity is critical such as outdoor security lights or outdoor area lighting for walkways or parking lots.

What are the challenges of LED PCB?

The main challenge of LED PCB is to control the current. If the current is too high, it will burn out the LED and also damage the PCB.
Another challenge is that you need to solder the LED onto a board with good conductivity and with high thermal conductivity.
One more challenge is selecting the right type of material for your LED PCB board.

How to Reduce LED PCB Temperature?

▄ reduce the temperature of LEB PCB is to separate the power supply from the led flood light.
▄ choose high-quality LED. The higher the quality of LED, the lower the temperature of the LED PCB chip inside. Low temperature allows more efficient use of electricity and lower costs for lighting applications.
▄ enlarge the heat radiating area by adding cooling fans or ventilation holes on top and bottom of floodlights, etc. This will help to dissipate heat generated by LED chips quickly and effectively.
