Avago Technologies Introduces White High-Brightness LED in Durable Surface Mount Package

Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced a white high-brightness LED in a robust surface-mount (SMT) package that simplifies manufacturing. The new ASMT-UWB1 LEDs are available in a Plastic Leaded Chip Carrier (PLCC)-2 package encapsulated in a heat-resistant silicone resin, enabling them to operate in a wide range of environmental conditions with high reliability and long operating life.

The superior light output of the ASMT-UWB1 LEDs enables reduced component count to cut overall system costs. This high-brightness performance, along with a wide 120-degree viewing angle, makes the LEDs well-suited for illuminated advertising, backlighting of vending and gaming machines, as well as for office automation, electrical appliances and industrial equipment.

Designers are choosing surface-mount LEDs because of their ease of assembly, compact footprint, and manufacturing flexibility, which combine to reduce overall system development costs. The ASMT-UWB1 surface-mount LEDs are packed in EIA-compliant tape and reels for simplified pick and place assembly. Each reel is shipped from a single intensity and tight color bins following the ANSI C78.377-2008 color binning structure to provide better uniformity.

The LEDs also feature a low forward voltage value, with a maximum of 3.6V. This results in low power consumption for end-applications.

Additional ASMT-UWB1 Features:
• Compatible with reflow soldering processes
• Lead-Free and RoHS compliant
• Moisture sensitivity: JEDEC MSL 3
• Electro-static discharge sensitivity: JEDEC HBM 1000V

Availability:
Samples and production quantities are available now through Avago’s direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners. More information about Avago´s products can be found at: www.avagotech.com/
