OSRAM Optoelectronics Semiconductors, represented by Braemac , has released its 6-lead MultiLED offering, which the company claims is capable of outperforming previous LED designs in terms of homogeneity and brightness.
The package allows the LEDs to be arranged very close together and flat on the board, which results in an even distribution of light. Further, the LEDs are suitable for 17-inch displays.
The product features an adjustable colour temperature that makes the brightness and colour of the display to remain constant. Because the LEDs are resistant to vibrations, they can be used in harsh ambient environments.
The LED package now sits on six legs instead of four so it can better dissipate the heat. This will benefit not only 17-inch displays but also the smaller displays, such as the 7-inch displays used in cars.
