The 78000 transparent LCD heater uses indium-tin-oxide technology to eliminate all wires in the viewing area, allowing it to be installed in front of an LCD.
Two tricolor LEDs, each in a 1.6-mm-wide, 3-mm-long, 0.7-mm-high surface-mount package, feature a luminous intensity of up to 220 mcd and up to a 150-degree viewing angle, depending on the color.
A line of 12-V fixed-output dc-to-ac inverters, each just 6.5 mm across and 35.5 mm long, powers cold-cathode, hot-cathode, and ultraviolet fluorescent lamps as small as 2-by-25-mm or as large as 5-by-150 mm. Drawing just 150 mA, these "pencil" inverters generate 800-V output at 4 mA and 105 kHz.
