Avago Technologies Announces Moonstone Warm White Power LED for Solid-State Lighting Applications

New 1-Watt High Brightness LED Features Low-Profile Design, Low Thermal Resistance, and Superior Moisture Sensitivity for Easy Installation.

Avago’s ASMT-MY00 high brightness LED package, which feature a smooth radiation pattern and 110-degree viewing angle, is a high performance energy efficient device that has been developed to withstand high operating temperatures and driving currents.  With an exposed pad design, this 1-Watt warm white power LED provides excellent heat transfer from the package to the motherboard to enable the ASMT-MY00 to be driven at a current of 350mA. Moreover, this LED delivers up to 56 lumens to provide superior lumens to watt efficiency.

With its low profile design, which is ideal for use in those applications where height is a constraint, Avago’s ASMT-MY00 LED provides manufacturers with two significant advantages. First, it can be easily soldered using conventional surface mount (SMT) techniques to minimize production costs, and the package is qualified to a JEDEC moisture sensitivity level (MSL) rating of 2A.  For manufacturers, this rating means that the ASMT-MY00 LED warm white LEDs can be kept in the open air (30° C, 60 percent relative humidity) for up to four weeks after being removed from their sealed package without the need to remove absorbed moisture.

With the addition of the ASMT-MY00 warm white LED to its Moonstone LED series, Avago can now provide customers with a wider selection of 1-Watt Power LEDs.  In addition to warm white, Avago also offers these 1-Watt Moonstone LEDs in blue, green and cool white. 

The dimensions of the ASMT-MY00 surface mount power package are 8.5 mm wide by 15.85 mm long by 3.3 mm high.
Features an exposed pad design to provide low thermal resistance (10 C/W) between the LED chip junction and printed circuit board to minimize temperature rise and help assure long-term device reliability.
LED chip is encapsulated in a silicone compound to assure resistance against UV and heat exposure , the packaged LEDs are specified for operation over the –40° C to +95° C temperature range, and are capable of withstanding electrostatic discharge (ESD) levels of 16 kV (class 3b) per ESD Association standard ESD STM5.1, Electrostatic Discharge Sensitivity Testing -- Human Body Model.
Color temperatures from approximately 2600 to 4000K.
Typical total luminous flux of 50 lumens (at 350 mA forward current).
Pb-free and RoHs compliant.

U.S. Pricing and Availability:
Avago’s ASMT-MY00 Moonstone LEDs are priced in the $2.50 range in 10,000 piece quantities. Samples and production quantities are available now through Avago’s direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
