Avago Technologies Announces One of the Industry’s Smallest High-Power LED Emitters

Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced one of the industry’s smallest LED emitters for solid-state lighting applications.

With dimensions of 5mm by 4 mm by 1.85 mm thick, Avago’s new compact 1-Watt (1W) ASMT-Jx1x is packaged in a small outline package (SOP) and capable of being driven at 350 mA to provide high flux output performance.  Additionally, this compact LED emitter provides a wide viewing angle, has moisture sensitivity level-one (MSL 1) capability, and is very reliable.  This competitively priced 1W LED emitter is ideal for use in lighting applications where space is constrained.  Typical applications include portable lighting appliances, street lighting, architectural facade lighting, retail display lighting, backlighting and specialty lighting applications.

Despite its compact size, the ASMT-Jx1x provides a maximum viewing angle of 165-degree to meet the needs of designers who require good color and light output uniformity in their lighting applications.  Avago’s ASMT-Jx1x is a high performance LED designed to handle high thermal and high drive currents.  By delivering a high flux output of up to 87 lumens (lm) at 350mA, this LED features a maximum allowable junction temperature of 150 degrees-C and high Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) resistance of 16 kV which makes this LED insensitive to ESD.  As a result, special ESD protection equipment is not required to handle the part during installation.  Moreover, this 1W LED is compatible with standard SMT reflow soldering processes and helps lower design cost while providing lighting designers with more freedom and flexibility in designing their applications.
