Abstract

The trend in the electronic industry is towards min- iaturization. As products become smaller, the available printed circuit board space is also reduced. This creates the need to integrate multiple components in single pack- ages to save space. Two components in particular for which joint packaging would be advantageous are the LED and phototransistor.
