Backlighting solutions

Nelson-Miller offers a variety of backlighting solutions to fit your unique requirements. Whether you're looking to backlight a membrane switch, logo on a graphic overlay, keypad or a full assembly, we offer a variety of backlighting solutions that will bring your final product to the market "in the best light.


LED technology allows selective backlighting of text and graphics and costs significantly less than other backlighting strategies. Light guides distribute the light from side-firing LEDs giving bright and uniform illumination.  LED backlighting uniformity can also be significantly enhanced by incorporating fiber optic backlighting.  Another solution to consider is electroluminescent backlighting (EL), which provides excellent light uniformity with very low power consumption.


Our engineers work with you to assist in designing an integrated backlighting solution to fit your project needs on cost, light uniformity, intensity, environmental requirements, and operating life.
