The Guide to DIP LED Module

What Is a DIP LED Module?

DIP (Dual In-line Package) LED modules are LED display modules featuring through-hole LEDs. Each DIP module consists of a PCB with mounted LEDs covered by plastic casing for protection from external elements. DIP modules are known for their high brightness and wide viewing angle – ideal for outdoor displays.

Comparison of DIP and SMD LED Modules

When it comes to LED comparison, both DIP and SMD LEDs demonstrate their respective strengths onstage. DIP LEDs excel in outdoor displays while SMDs offer detail, energy efficiency, and better durability indoors.
DIP LEDs harken back to an era where durability reigns supreme. Their twin-pin piercing circuit boards make these LEDs the ideal companions for outdoor signage, offering unrivaled weather resistance and luminosity that penetrates even the brightest days.
  • Robustness: DIP LEDs are designed to endure harsh outdoor conditions.
  • Visibility: Their powerful glow ensures legibility even under direct sunlight.
  • Simplicity: The traditional DIP design favors easy maintenance and repair.

SMD LEDs are masterful artists of details, painting intricate pictures with their diminutive lights. Unlike DIP models, which puncture through circuit boards with diodes that penetrate them directly, SMDs lay flat upon its surface allowing for a denser concentration of diodes that create intricate tapestries of detail and vibrancy.

  • High Resolution: SMD LEDs offer higher resolution due to their compact nature, leading to finer pixel pitches.
  • Versatility: From indoor and outdoor applications, SMDs adapt well under all lighting conditions. 
  • Energy Efficiency: These modern LEDs consume less power, making them eco-friendlier.
