Vishay – Ultra-bright LEDs in compact 0402 ChipLED packages (VLMx1500-GS08)Aug 24 2012 - Switches, Relays & Onboard [More Switches, Relays & Onboard Articles]
The Optoelectronics group of Vishay has announced a new series of super-red, soft-orange, yellow, yellow-green, blue, and white ultra-bright LEDs in a tiny surface-mount 0402 ChipLED package. Measuring just 1mm by 0.5mm with an ultra-thin 0.35mm profile, the VLMx1500-GS08 series devices provide exceptional brightness with a luminous intensity to 180mcd.
While the blue and white LEDs in the VLMx1500-GS08 series use highly-efficient InGaN technology, the super-red, soft-orange, yellow, and yellow-green devices utilize the latest advanced AllnGaP technology to increase light output by a factor of three. With their high brightness and small size, VLMx1500-GS08 series LEDS are seen as ideal for reliable performance in indicator and backlighting for audio and video equipment; office equipment; LCDs, switches, and symbols; interior and exterior lighting; and indoor and outdoor message boards.
Super-red, soft-orange, yellow, yellow-green, and blue devices are grouped by luminous intensity, wavelength, and forward voltage, and they offer an extremely wide viewing angle of 130 degrees. The white LEDs are chromaticity coordinated categorized according to CIE 1931, per packing unit, with typical coordinates of 0.294 (x) and 0.286 (y) and a typical colour temperature of 7,000K.
The VLMx1500-GS08 series LEDs are available in 8mm tape. RoHS-compliant and ‘Vishay GREEN’, the devices are compatible with IR-reflow soldering processes and preconditioned according to JEDEC Level 2a, says the company.More news from Vishay
