Vishay Releases Mid Power SMD LEDs in CLCC-6 Flat Ceramic Package

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today released the industry.s first series of high-intensity yellow, amber, and white power SMD LEDs in the CLCC-6 flat ceramic package to offer low thermal resistance of 40 K/W or 60 K/W and high optical power from 2800 mcd to 9000 mcd for thermal-sensitive applications.

With an ultra-low profile of only 0.9 mm, the CLCC-6 flat ceramic package of the VLMK62, VLMY62, and VLMW62 devices allows the additional current drive for a maximum light output while maintaining a high service life of up to 50,000 hours, making them ideal light sources in applications where thermal management is a key consideration.

The new LEDs are optimized for backlighting and illumination in automotive and transport, consumer, and general applications. Typical end products include handheld mobile devices, such as mobile phones and PDAs; traffic lights; advertising displays; bicycle lamps; household appliances, such as washer, driers, and refrigerators; and exterior automotive lighting, such as turn and brake lights.

All devices in the series offer a 60° half-intensity angle and are compatible with IR-reflow solder processes, in accordance with CECC 00802 and J-STD-020C. Preconditioned according to JEDEC Level 4a standards, the CLCC-6 flat package is lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant. The LEDs are automotive qualified AEC-Q101.
