Claim of US Patent No. 10,219,376

1. A light-emitting diode apparatus, comprising:a light-emitting diode element having a front side and a rear side,
wherein the front side has an emission region for emitting electromagnetic waves and a first diode connection contact associated with the emission region,
wherein the rear side of the light emitting diode element has a second diode connection contact;
a printed circuit board having a through-opening and a board connection contact,
wherein the front side of the light-emitting diode element is connected to the printed circuit board, and
wherein the emission region is arranged opposite the through-opening and the first diode connection contact is arranged opposite the board connection contact and is electrically conductively connected to the board connection contact; and
a covering unit having a recess for receiving the light-emitting diode element and having a covering unit contact,
wherein the covering unit is connected to the printed circuit board and the light-emitting diode element is arranged in the recess,
wherein the covering unit contact is arranged opposite the second diode connection contact and is electrically connected to the second diode connection contact,
wherein the covering unit is composed of a further printed circuit board and a frame element that abuts the further printed circuit board, and
wherein the recess is formed by a passage opening in the frame element.
