New Mid-Power Ultraviolet Emitting Diode With Quartz Window from Vishay

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. introduced a ceramic mid power ultraviolet (UVC) emitting diode for sterilization, sanitation, and purification applications. Featuring a quartz window, the Vishay Semiconductors VLMU35CM00-280-120 delivers an extremely long lifetime in a compact 3.5 mm by 3.5 mm by 1.2 mm surface-mount package.

Features:
•    Ceramic SMT package with quartz window
•    Dimension (L x W x H) in mm: 3.5 x 3.5 x 1.2
•    Forward current: up to 150 mA
•    Radiant power (typ.): 12 mW at 100 mA
•    Leads / terminations finish: gold plated (Au)
•    Reflow soldering method
•    MSL 3 according to J-STD-020

     www.vishay.com/doc?99912

Applications:
•    Sterilization
•    Medical application
•    Sensing of gases, germs, DNA, ...

Designed to replace mercury UVC lamps, the device released today offers an emission angle of ± 60° and radiant power to 18 mW at 100 mA without the need for an external lens. Built on AlGaN technology, the VLMU35CM00-280-120 features forward current up to 150 mA, forward voltage down to 4 V, and a wavelength range of 270 nm to 290 nm.

The emitter diode's specifications make it ideal for water and air purification, physical surface sterilization, medical disinfection, and portable sanitizers. RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green, the VLMU35CM00-280-120 is compatible with reflow soldering processes and features a Moisture Sensitivity Level of 3 in accordance with J-STD-020.

Samples of the new UVC emitting diode are available now. Production quantities are available with lead times of four weeks.
