Vishay launches AllnGaP power MiniLEDs with luminous intensity of 4900mcd at 70mA

Vishay Intertechnology Inc of Malvern, PA, USA has launched a series of power MiniLEDs in ultra-compact 2.3mm by 1.3mm by 1.4mm SMD packages. Using the latest aluminum indium gallium phosphide (AlInGaP) technology, the VLMx234.. series provides typical luminous intensity of 3500mcd and maximum luminous intensity of 4900mcd at a drive current of 70mA, while delivering improved thermal performance compared to previous-generation LEDs.

The high-intensity LEDs provide low thermal resistance junction/ambient of 325K/W and power dissipation up to 200mW, which in turn enables high drive currents up to 70mA. The devices’ small size and high luminous intensity makes them suitable for automotive applications. Offered in 900-2240mcd super red (630nm) and 1400-3550mcd red (625nm), amber (616nm) and yellow (589nm) colors, the AEC-Q101-qualified LEDs are usable for interior and exterior lighting, dashboard illumination, indicators and backlighting for A/V and industrial equipment, LCD switches and symbols, and illuminated advertising.

VLMx234 devices feature a ± 60° angle of half-intensity and a luminous intensity ratio per packing unit of less than 1.6, and are categorized, per packing unit, for luminous intensity and color.

Available in 8mm tape, the LEDs are compatible with IR-reflow soldering processes and preconditioning according to JEDEC Level 2a, and offer an ESD-withstand voltage up to 2kV according to JESD22-A114-B. The devices are RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.

Samples of the new LEDs are available now. Production quantities were made available in December, with lead times of six weeks for larger orders.
