Avago Technologies Introduces New Competitively Priced Low-Power Red, Green, Blue and Amber Compact LED Lamps

Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today introduced a new series of competitively priced high-brightness Red, Green, Blue and Amber subminiature light emitting diode (LED) lamps for use in a variety of industrial and consumer applications where space is limited.

This series of highly reliable, long-life subminiature lamps from Avago are available in un-tinted, non-diffused packages and have a slim 2.8 mm design.  Avago's ASMT-Bx20 is ideal for use in industrial applications such as panel indicators, button, symbol and liquid crystal display (LCD) backlighting.

Avago's ASMT-Bx20 high-brightness subminiature LEDs, which feature a smooth radiation pattern and narrow 15-degree viewing angle, are high performance energy efficient LEDs that have been developed to perform with reliability in temperatures ranging from -40 to +85 degrees C. The ability to operate reliably over such a wide temperature range is beneficial to designers building industrial applications that must have a long product life.  

With its slim design, Avago's ASMT-Bx20 is packaged in a small, clear surface mount package and is compatible with automated placement equipment, as well as infrared and vapor phase reflow soldering processes.
