PACOIMA, CA (June 7, 2005) -- JKL Components Corporation, industry leader in the design and manufacture of miniature cold cathode, hot cathode and ultraviolet lamps and power inverters, has initiated a full service capability in the design and production of miniature lamp assemblies ranging from prototype runs to large quantity manufacturing. Initial target markets include backlighting of liquid crystal displays for applications ranging from laptops to point-of-sale devices, instrumentation, biomedicine, and large flat panel displays and signage. JKL president and technical director, Joseph S. Velas, emphasized that this is ?a niche market in which JKL Components Corporation is uniquely positioned to provide a value-added benefit to a broad range of electronics companies who might otherwise have to set up specialized sub-assembly operations offline to support manufacturing demand. ?We can provide safe and proven expertise in this unique technology from initial design and prototyping to full production, while saving customers time, money, and the problems of false starts in this specialized discipline where safety and reliability are critical,? he continued. JKL can provide simple assemblies of single or multi-output lamps with matching power inverters and special high voltage wiring and connectors, or much more complicated devices that may include custom end caps and mounting brackets, heated lamps for low temperature start, multi-lamp rails with dimming inverters for exceptional brightness, and ruggedized models for long life in extreme operating conditions. Pricing for simple assemblies begins at $10 in production quantities, with delivery in two to three weeks following approval of prototypes. Full design and engineering assistance is also available. Because the JKL line of lamps is the most extensive in the industry ? ranging from 3mm diameter x 25mm length to 2.6mm x 600mm -- and supported by a full complement of matching single and multiple output power inverters (many of which are dimmable), JKL has the internal ability to provide suitable backlighting for applications ranging from hand-held mobile devices to seven foot flat panel displays. JKL Components Corporation is a just-in-time supplier to many of the nation?s leading high-volume users of miniature and subminiature lamps and lighting accessories. JKL offers one of the broadest selections of lamps and accessories in the industry, with over 5000 standards from stock.
