Palatine, Ill. Lumex has expanded its high-power LED portfolio with three surface-mount packages and 34 product variants that combine high levels of illumination with low power consumption. These devices may be used in LCD backlights, decorative lighting, automotive interior lighting, animated signs, warning lights and alarms, or other applications that call for high light output LEDs with lower power consumption.
The three new high-power LED lines are the LuxLEDs, SuperFLUX LEDs and AstraLEDs. The high-power LEDs in the LuxLEDs package are available in 14 different versions with emitted colors of yellow, red, blue, green, and white. These devices produce axial intensities as high as 24,000 mcd with total flux levels up to 5.0 Lm at If = 120 mA. The LuxLED package has a footprint of approximately 11 x 21 mm (0.44 x 0.82-inch), and it is designed to handle a maximum power dissipation of 320 mW.
The high-power SuperFLUX LEDs in the PLCC-4 package are offered in 10 different versions. They are available in yellow, green, blue, white, and orange/red colors. Axial light intensities range up to 25,000 mcd,
with maximum total flux levels of 15 Lm at If = 350 mA. The industry-standard PLCC-4 package offers a maximum power dissipation of 120 mW.
The AstraLEDs provide the highest intensities of all products in the high-power family. These 1-W LEDs deliver a total flux level of up to 30 Lm with a power input of 350 mA. The AstraLEDs are designed for use with automatic surface-mount soldering processes. They are available with two different lens shapes for maximum viewing angle and they have extended metal backplanes to allow for efficient heat transfer to the PCB or other mounting surface.
