A NEW series of low-current, surface-mount LEDs based on the ultra-bright AllnGaP technology has been launched by Vishay Intertechnology.
At a forward current of just 2mA, super red, orange, and yellow LEDs in the new TLMx300x series provide exceptional brightness in low-power applications.
The TLMS3000 and TLMS3001 super red LEDs feature a dominant wavelength of 630nm and typical luminous intensities from 2.5mcd to 12.5mcd.
Available with a dominant wavelength of 606nm, the new TLMO3000 and TLMO3001 orange LEDs from Vishay Semiconductors, represented by Braemac , feature typical luminous intensities from 5.0mcd to 20mcd.
With a dominant wavelength of 587nm, the TLMY3000 and TLMY3001 yellow LEDs offer typical luminous intensities from 4mcd to 20mcd.
The new devices are embedded in a small white EIA and ICE-standard package measuring 2.8mm by 3mm with a height profile of 1.65mm. The P-LCC-2 package consists of a lead frame embedded in a white thermoplast, with an interior reflector filled with clear epoxy.
All six devices feature a 60° angle of half intensity and a non-diffused lens that facilitates coupling to light pipes. Each LED is luminous intensity and color categorized for each packing unit, and a luminous intensity ratio of 2.0 or less per packing unit ensures even lighting.
The TLMx300x series is rated for a 125°C junction temperature, a thermal resistance junction of 400kW, and an operating temperature range of -40°C to +100°C.
The new LEDs offer ESD-withstand voltage of up to 1kV. Automatic assembly is simplified with CECC compatibility for infra-red, vapour phase, and wave soldering methods.
Provided in 8-mm tape form, samples and production quantities of the new TLMx300x SMD LEDs are available now.
