Electronics Backlighting

Membrane Switches & Keypads

Our low-profile, flexible LED backlighting technologies are an ideal choice for membrane switch or keypad applications by offering the following advantages versus traditional lighting options:

  • Design flexibility: die cut holes and shapes, color change, segmented lighting, different sizes and quick, cost-effective prototypes.
  • Thin format, causing minimal interference with tactile response.
  • Design support to reduce power consumption.


Lumitex Light Guide Technology can provide the thinnest, most optically efficient backlighting solution with highest uniformity for computer keyboards. Our solutions can save power and allow for integration of associated components like reflectors and adhesive.

Our keyboard applications are generally served from our Asia facility in Taiwan.

Capacitive Touch

Traditional lighting technologies can interfere with the capacitive field and affect switch performance. With its low-profile, our Light Guide Film technology can provide an inert illumination layer that works well in capacitive touch applications.>/

LCD Backlight

Lumitex technologies provide backlights in custom shapes, sizes and configurations. We can deliver light effectively to displays and can reduce overall power. Our thin, low-profile technologies offer:

  • Compact Size
  • Design Flexibility
  • "Plug-and-Play” integration
