VISHAY Intertechnology has released a family of high-intensity, low-current, single-digit, seven-segment displays that provide excellent readability even in direct sunlight. They are available from Braemac .
The new Vishay Semiconductors TDSR series displays, utilising AllnGaP technology in the colour red, offers best-in-class performance for low-power applications, delivering a typical luminous intensity of 1500µcd while being driven with just 1mA of current.
Featuring a wide viewing angle, the new displays will be used in panel meters, test and measurement equipment, point-of-sale terminals, control units, and battery-operated systems requiring very low power consumption.
The six TDSR displays released offer designers a choice of common anode (TDSRxx50) or common cathode (TDSRxx60) versions with minimum and maximum luminous intensity ratings from 180µcd to 3600µcd respectively, enabling operation in direct sunlight or in "black front" designs using tinted filter glass.
A maximum forward current of 10mA is allowed for an ambient temperature range of -40°C to 85°C without current derating.
Package dimensions for the new displays are 7.4mm by 9.9mm by 9.1mm deep (TDSR0750 and TDSR0760), 9.7mm by 12.8mm by 10.7mm deep (TDSR1050 and TDSR1060), and 12.25mm by 17.5mm by 10.6mm deep (TDSR1350 and TDSR1360) with a grey package surface.
Samples and production quantities of the new displays are available now with lead times of four weeks.
