OSRAM integrates lens in Dragon LED family, delivers 3.5x more intensity

With an integrated lens, the new IR LED SFH 4236 exceeds the radiant intensity of the standard IR Dragon SFH 4232 by more than a factor of three. This new, powerful device has a very small form factor and adds depth to the well-known infrared Dragon family. The integrated lens concentrates the emitted infrared light within a viewing angle of +/-20° and achieves a typical radiant intensity of 650 mW/sr at a DC current of 1 A. The new infrared Dragon is well suited for applications with limited board space that require narrow radiation characteristics.
