(54)LIGHT EMITTING DIODE MODULE AND DISPLAY FOR HIDING PHYSICAL GAPS BETWEEN MODULES


(57) A light emitting diode (LED) module and display for hiding physical gaps between modules is provided. An LED module comprises: a board including at least one edge; and an array of LEDs at the board, the array comprising: first LEDs and second LEDs, smaller than the first LEDs, the second LEDs located along the at least one edge of the board, the first and second LEDs all being at a common pitch distance, adjacent sides of adjacent first LEDs separated by a first distance, and the second LEDs being at a second distance from the at least one edge of the board, the second distance smaller than the first distance. The modules may be incorporated into an LED display.
