The xLED is similar, but without a carrier PCB… the antenna wires are connected directly to the SMT pads of the LED and the LED can be positioned somewhat randomly inside… usually pointing out the side like the xSIID, but sometimes at a 45 degree angle and sometimes very closer to “shooting” out the domed cap of the glass.
only slightly so… the tissue around that end of the LED lights up really well regardless of the direction the LED is facing. Facing up, you get the LED’s output directly without much surrounding tissue lighting up… if the LED is facing exactly away from the skin you get all the surrounding tissue glowing really nicely.
also… i’m fairly certain that the x-series tube shaped implants do rotate around inside their fibrous cocoons on a regular basis… so if you’re “unlucky” just wait 5 minutes
Same here about two weeks ago I found some more Amber colored xSIID through Digiwell in Germany. Bought a second one today and it was marked as the last one.
So I can slowly start making plans for my right arm now and maybe somewhere else…
Sounds interesting! Looking forward to your project.
