LED Display Module:The Ultimate Introduction Guide

You can get the full knowledge of the led display module from this article, As a basic unit of LED display, which is also called an LED panel. Covers the front surface of the LED screen, also the first thing that comes to our eyes when we look at a LED display.

We’ll bring you to know more about the LED display modules from these points as below: The led display components, module classification of application, led display screen sizes & some suggestions if we could offer.

Four Parts Ultimate Inroduction Guide of LED Display Modules:

Part One : LED Display Module Components

The LED screen module is one of the main components of the finished LED display! Mainly composed of LEDs, PCB, IC, Frame, Connector, Cables, Screws, resistors and capacitors!

1, LEDs: Can be divided into DIP LEDs,SMD LEDs and GOB LEDs

DIP LEDs is dual in-line package. Generally speaking, DIP LEDs are mainly used for outdoor displays with large pixel pitch like P10, P16 and P20. DIP346 is the LEDs that we adopted for our LED screen Modules with brightness over 7000-10,000cd/m2.

SMD LED is a surface mount light-emitting diode. We have 3 different brands of SMD LEDs from different packaging companies. For Indoor Module, we have San’an, Kinglight and Nationstar LEDs available. For Outdoor Module, we have Kinglight, Nationstar Copper Wire and Nationstar Golden wire LEDs available.

Furthermore, we have different sizes of SMD LEDs suitable for different applications.For indoor, we have SMD1010,SMD1515,SMD2020 and for outdoor, we have SMD1921, SMD2525(only available for Kinglight), SMD2727, SMD3535. Below are the LEDs pictures for your reference.
smd led
Take our SMD1010 for example, the apparent size is 1.0×1.0×0.65mm, the size is small, and it can be used as a screen with a smaller pitch, which is more suitable for the field of indoor high-definition LED display. As for SMD3535,the apparent size is 3.5×3.5×2.8mm, the size is much bigger than SMD1010. It suitable for Outdoor P6,P8 and P10 LED Display.

GOB LEDs is the abbreviation of glue on board. It has transparent material on the led module surface. It protects LED lamps and makes module waterproof.

The Advantage of GOB LEDs is that GOB LEDs is hard to damage because of Glue protection. so some customers use GOB LED for Rental LED Display.

The Disadvantage of GOB LEDs is that GOB LED Module is hard to repair when the LED is broken, and the led module contrast is not good as the SMD LED Module.
2, IC is an integrated circuit,it’s small black blocks with pins on the circuit board.
For Outdoor LED Module, our standard IC is ICN2038S IC and for Indoor LED Module, our standard IC is ICN2037IC with both refresh rate at 1920HZ. We have also MBI5124IC,ICN2153IC and MIB5153IC available for a higher refresh rate to 3840Hz. The higher the refresh rate, the clearer the picture.the below picture will show you what the led display effect is for 2038S and 2153 IC.

Part Four: How to Choose The Right LED Display Screen Module ?

Indoor full-color LED display (the main conventional models are P2, P2.5, P3, P4, P5)

We will according to the customer’s installation environment and viewing distance, different solutions are provided resolution ,like The Hotel banquet hall or Stage about 20 square meters display screen is suitable for high quality p4 led display modules and P5 models.

Such as meeting room about 12 square meters screen is suitable for P2 led module and P2.5 led module screen.

If the height is within 3 meters, it is recommended to choose P3 or P4 models .

when the height is greater than 3 meters, high-quality p2.5 led display module or P3 specifications can be selected.

With an area of about 1.5 meters, it is recommended to select small spacing LED modules, and the available specifications are p1.875, p1.667, p1.5625, p1.25, etc.

For example Our Hongkong Client one meeting room arround 5.12m×2.56m sqm choose P2 fixed indoor HD LED wall.

For this project we choose P2 -256mm×128mm Kinglight +ICN2038S Driving IC moduel (the refresh rate is reach 1920Hz )we help client make struture and use the module Wall installation with front maintenance.

HD LED Video Wall(the main conventional models are P0.9, P1.2, P1.5, P1.6, P1.8, P2.0)


  1. In the same area, compared with ordinary display screens, the pixels are denser and the picture is super clear.
  2. The visual distance can be more closer.
  3. Large light-emitting angle, wide viewing angle, ultra-high refresh rate( normally can reach 3840HZ)
  4. Small-pitch LED electronic screens have high fault tolerance,A small range of dead LED occurs, which has little effect on the screen.

USA -P1.25 HD video wall used in Large sales center Display size:4.8m(W)×2.7m (H)

We choose P1.25 150mm×168.75mm Nationstar +5153IC,High Refresh Rate>3840 HZ,High Gray 16Bits,Hig Contrast,Low Consumption,No flicker) module this can realize 4K HD playback.

Outdoor full-color LED displays (the main conventional models are P3, P4, P5, P6, P8, P10) With the development of the market, outdoor small pitches are slowly becoming popular Like P2.5, P2.976 etc.

For outdoor fixed display the most consideration is brightness, waterproof level, and maintenance methods.
Normally our outdoor module brightness is 5000-6500nits ,IP65 waterproof and Back maintenance.

Considering Close to Snow Mountain the brightness and Waterproof level is high requested ,we recommend our client use P10 outdoor module 320mm×320mm IP68 waterproof and Nationstar LED which can reach 6000 nits.
