What is a LED Chip?

A LED chip is a light producing semiconductor device that may or may not be incorporated into a Light Emitting Diode. The chip is manufactured onto a heat conducting material and then covered by a glass or plastic lens. You could fit almost 6 little LED chips on the tip of my baby fingernail. The amount of light that is produced by these little conductors is really amazing. They are only getting smaller and brighter and the engineers are constantly working on making them last even longer.
