|CEMI CQYP 32A & CQYP 40 LEDs (CQYP 40B) ||
|Written by AnubisTTP on 2012-04-27
The CEMI CQYP 32A is a Polish-made 4mm green LED with a gold transistor-style package and curved lens - a construction style which is outwardly almost identical to that of early Monsanto LEDs. This device lacks the anvil head mounting found in early Monsanto devices however, and the LED die within appears to be a normal mid-1970s GaP green device of average brightness. The LED die is installed in a small reflector cup, similar to the type used in modern LEDs, and is covered with a transparent green epoxy lens. CEMI also produced a red version of this device; the CQYP 40. The CQYP 40 is outwardly identical to the CQYP 32A, with the exception of it's red LED die and epoxy lens.
Special thanks to Zygmunt Flisak for identifying this obscure device.
CEMI CQYP 32A LED, normal operation.
The CEMI CQYP 40 and CQYP 32A look remarkably similar in construction to a Monsanto MV1, with the exception of the very noticeable colored epoxy lenses.
