Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, has introduced a 1-Watt, miniature LED for SSL applications. The company says its features include robust package design, wide viewing angle, and extended operating life.
With dimensions of 5 mm by 4 mm by 1.85 mm thick, Avago’s new compact 1-Watt (1W) ASMT-Jx1x is capable of being driven at 350 mA to provide high flux output performance. The company says that the reliable LED with a wide viewing angle has moisture sensitivity level-one (MSL 1) capability. According to the company, the competitively priced LED is ideal for applications portable lighting appliances, street lighting, architectural facade lighting, retail display lighting, backlighting and specialty lighting applications.
Despite its compact size, the ASMT-Jx1x provides a maximum viewing angle of 165-degrees to meet the needs of designers who require good color and light output uniformity in their lighting applications. Avago’s ASMT-Jx1x is a high performance LED designed to handle high thermal and high drive currents. By delivering a high flux output of up to 87 lumens (lm) at 350mA, this LED features a maximum allowable junction temperature of 150 degrees-C and high Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) resistance of 16 kV which makes this LED insensitive to ESD. As a result, special ESD protection equipment is not required to handle the part during installation. Moreover, this 1W LED is compatible with standard SMT reflow soldering processes and helps lower design cost while providing lighting designers with more freedom and flexibility in designing their applications.
Avago’s ASMT-Jx1x LEDs are priced at $1.60 each in 10,000 piece quantities. Samples and production quantities are available now. For more information, visit www.avagotechlighting.com or www.avagotech.com.
