Please put me down for 30 please. Not sure what I will do with them yet but I still have a few Xitanium drivers lying around in my box (outputs 700ma.) I just bought a house so I’m sure I’ll be able to scrap up some fixed lighting things.

Thanks!

Hi,

I finally got around to trying this, reflowing 3 of the Nichia 119s onto a parallel 3up board from IS.

I used the Kapton tape method to insulate the middle pad:

and it lights up!

I just tried to solder some of these…
I used regular solder, worked not so good first…then I pretined the LEDs too and that worked.
They look definitely not so neat like yours, they didn’t jump in place when hot…next time I will use standard reflowing procedure with solder paste…

On the single led I used the grinding and filled the gap with Fujik, but Fujik behaves a bit weird while soldering. The kapton variant works better.
The one with the small copper piece and blob of Fujik is a test, I first used just the wires as heatsink(50mm awg22 on each side) but decided to spend a copper scrap…

The light is interesting because colours look really good but the colour temperature is neutral never seen that before…

Hi,

Yes, at least from my one attempt, I think using solder paste and kapton tape to insulate the middle pad on the board seems to work well. With that, the emitters did “move” into place once the solder paste went shiny, just like normal reflowing.

I was pleasantly surprised… I was worried that the kapton tape would cause a problem with the reflowing and moving because it does have some “height”, but it worked fine.

At least from my experience, Fujik melts when it gets hot. I had tried to use Fujik to hold a 7135 in place when I stacked it, but that was a disaster, because the Fujik went liquid, and the 7135 just started floating around :)… Same thing happened when I tried using AA instead.

Hi there!

Just wondering if you still had these available.

I’m now pretty sure that I threw out my 30 emitters :_( (maybe this will teach me to look in those small open packets before recycling them)

If your answer is yes then I’d like 20 30 more emitters please (there’s a project I still need them for.)

thanks!

Edit – actually 30 again please.

Yes, I have more. I also have a few with a 3600K color temperature.

I just got some about a week ago. He’s probably still got some. As for shipping:

Price is $5 for 10 pieces, shipping in the US is $2 for any quantity. Not quite sure about international shipping, but it looks like it would be $5 for up to 4 ounces. The only tracking number would be the customs form number, which may or may not be trackable in all countries. Trackable shipping is outrageous for small packages…

Request: has anyone have a few (3or4) of these 119’s spare for me to test a ledboard for 119 leds? I will pay for them plus the costs of mailing them to me in a plain envelope.

Thanks!

(I can’t find Nichia 119’s anywhere for sale nowadays.)

djozz, if texaspyro doesn’t answer, I’d be happy to send you a few of those that I’ve got. Send me a pm if you don’t hear from him soon. Also, if anybody is interested, a quick search on eBay just now brought up this listing for Nichia NCSL119T H1 3000k LEDs

Sorry for the bump,

but where can one still get Nichia 119 LEDs (cool white)? On their website there are specs for NVSW119C, D and F (lat two labelled ‘new product’), but no distributor has any stock, and all they tell us is we have to order 3000 pc. from Japan, lead time 6 weeks.

We are supposed to solder 35 boards (9 LEDs each) next week, with only 240 LEDs on stock, and no time to convert the layout to the 219 (which is on stock everywhere). Now I am the one to blame for choosing the wrong LED back in 2014. Could I smell that everybody would go for the 3-pad footprint? Anybody have some 119 left over? Eng. samples welcome. 119A, B, C etc. is no problem, we can adjust the current.
