Showdown: The Difference Between LED 3528 vs 5050. Simply put, these LED chips are called SMD 5050 because the dimensions of the chips are 5.0mm x 5.0mm. They have 3 LED diodes in one housing (sometimes called tri-chips), and are a lot brighter than individual 3528 LED chips.
What is SMD 2835 LED?
The abbreviation SMD refers to a 'Surface Mounted Diode'. That means this is an LED Chip mounted directly to a light strip, without using wires. Strips that have SMD 3528 LEDs are called Luma5; SMD 5050 are called Luma10; and SMD 2835 are called Luma20.
What does 12 SMD mean?
"SMD LED" is an abbreviation for Surface-Mounted-Device Light-Emitting Diode. An SMD LED is a type of LED that uses Surface-mount technology (SMT) to mount LED chips on printed circuit boards (PCB).
