|Soviet AL102A LED ||
|Written by AnubisTTP on 2011-08-10
The Soviets manufactured many LEDs which were packaged in metal transistor-style cans, and the AL102A is a good example of such. This red LED is housed in a silvery metal package and has a clear lens, allowing easy viewing of the LED die within. The AL102A is rather dim, and is rated for only 0.4 MCD. Based on the low light output and construction style of the AL102A, one can only assume that it is one of the earlier Soviet LED part numbers.

The AL102A's emitter die can be clearly seen through the transparent lens. Note the cross-shaped top contact.
