Malvern, Pa. Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. claims the industry's first series of high-intensity yellow, amber, and white power SMD LEDs in the CLCC6 ceramic package. The VLMx61 series offers a very low thermal resistance and high optical power for thermal-sensitive applications.
The VLMx61 LEDs offer optical efficiency up to 34 lm/W in the CLCC6 package, and a high luminous intensity from 2800 to 9000 mcd. The CLCC6 ceramic package of the VLMK61, VLMY61, and VLMW61 devices allows the additional current drive for a maximum light output while maintaining a service life of up to 50,000 hours. In addition, the high-efficiency heat dissipation makes the CLCC6 suitable for clustered or matrix designs where the cumulative heat is a key consideration.
The VLMx61 LEDs are optimized for backlighting and illumination in automotive and transport, consumer, and general applications. Typical end products include handheld mobile devices, traffic lights, household appliances such as washer, dryers, and refrigerators, and exterior automotive lighting such as turn and brake lights.
All devices in the VLMx61 series offer a 60° half-intensity angle and are compatible with IR-reflow solder processes, in accordance with CECC 00802 and J-STD-020C. Preconditioned according to JEDEC Level 4a standards, the CLCC6 package is lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant, and is Automotive-qualified AEC-Q101.
