Early Straight-Pin LED (Unknown Mfr.)

Description

A dead end in LED design, straight-pin LEDs are single lead devices that are designed to be mounted directly in a plated hole on a PCB. The single lead is bent and attached to a separate pad on the underside of the PCB, the LED casing mated to the plated PCB hole acts as the other electrical connection. We have no idea who manufactured this particular device, but suspect it was most likely produced by Motorola.
