The AEC-Q101 qualified LEDs released today combine low thermal resistance down to 400 K/W with power dissipation of 130 mW, which in turn enables their high drive current. The small 2.3 mm by 1.3 mm by 1.4 mm size of the VLMx235xx’s MiniLED package and VLMx335xx’s high luminous intensity to 1400 mcd make them ideal for automotive interior and exterior lighting; traffic signals and signs; and indicators and backlighting for audio and video equipment, LCD switches, and symbols for general use.

Offered in super red, red, amber, soft orange, and yellow, the LEDs feature a lead-frame embedded in a white thermoplast, with an inside reflector filled with a clear epoxy. The devices offer a ± 60° angle of half-intensity, forward voltage down to 1.8 V, a luminous intensity ratio per packing unit of ≤ 1.6, and are categorized, per packing unit, for luminous intensity and color.

RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green, the LEDs are available in 8 mm tape, offer an ESD-withstand voltage up to 2 kV in accordance with JESD22-A114-B, and are compatible with preconditioning according to JEDEC Level 2a.

Samples and production quantities of the VLMx335xx and VLMx235xx series will be available in Q4 2018, with lead times of six weeks.

More information is available at www.vishay.com/ppg?84589 for the VLMx235xx, and www.vishay.com/ppg?84911 for the VLMx335xx, and data sheets may be directly downloaded at www.vishay.com/docs/84589/vlmx235.pdf and www.vishay.com/docs/84911/vlmx335.pdf respectively.
