Mid-Power LED Light Source Features High Lumen Density

Sharp is introducing a new lighting-class, multi-chip LED (nicknamed the Flash Brick), featuring very high lumen density in a small package.
The GM1BW78140A is the 0.5 Watt Flash Brick. It features an electrically isolated, exposed pad design for excellent heat transfer from the package to the motherboard. The Flash Brick reduces the overall system cost through reducing the number of system components. It is an excellent solution for lighting and any other applications that require a high light output in a small space.
  
The GM1BW78140A is reflow-compatible, to allow more freedom and flexibilityfor the light source designer.
