San Jose, Calif. Avago Technologies has added four new colors to its series of super half-watt (0.5 W) power PLCC-4 surface-mount (SMT) light emitting diodes (LEDs) for use in automotive and electronic sign applications. The ASMT-QxBE series now includes a brighter cool white, warm white, blue and green colors.
The ASMT-QxBE power LED series of high-brightness LEDs feature the industry's smallest package size (3.2 L x 2.8 W x 1.9 H mm) and a wide 120-degree viewing angle. These LEDs have been optimized for long operating life under severe environmental condition, and have been designed to dissipate heat more efficiently to provide improved thermal management and consistent light output.
The LEDs offer high optical efficiency: cool white (40 lm/W), warm white (33 lm/W), blue (10 lm/W), and green (35 lm/W). They also feature low thermal resistance of 60°C/W junction to pin and a high junction temperature of 125°C . The operating temperature range is -40°C to +110°C.
The 0.5-W cool white (ASMT-QWBE), warm white (ASMT-QYBE), blue (ASMT-QBBE) and green (ASMT-QGBE) series of SMT LEDs can be used for backlighting dashboards, dome and map lighting, puddle lamps, rear reverse lamp indicator lighting and license plate illumination in automotive applications. The series can also be used for decorative lighting in general lighting applications, channel lettering in ESS applications, and for backlighting instrument panels and displays in industrial equipment, office automation and home appliance applications.
The ASMT-QxBE series feature typical luminous flux of 9.8 to 17 lumens at 150 mA drive currents. Previously announced 0.5 power PLCC-4 LED colors and corresponding part numbers are white (ASMT-QWB2), amber (ASMT-QAB2), red-orange (ASMT-QHB2), and red (ASMT-QRB2).
Packaging is qualified to a Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) moisture sensitive level (MSL) rating of 2A. The devices are lead free and RoHS compliant.
Pricing: The 0.5-W power LEDs are priced from $0.53 to $0.73 each depending on quantity.
Availability: Samples and production quantities are available now.
