The ASMT-Ax3x Power LED emitter provides a 140° viewing angle suitable for backlighting of advertising displays, channel letters, and contour lighting. Features include high flux output up to 113 lm at 350 mA driving current, a maximum allowable junction temperature of 135°C, and ESD resistance of 16 kV. Encapsulated in a heat- and UV-resistant silicone compound, the ASMT-Ax3x also features low thermal resistance of 10°C/W.
Avago Technologies Expands Series of 3-Watt High Power LED Emitters for Solid-state Lighting Applications
New 3-Watt LEDs are a Drop-in Replacement for One of the Most Common Footprints in the SSL Industry
LIGHT + BUILDING, FRANKFURT, GERMANY, April 14, 2010 - Avago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced the expansion of its series of compact, energy efficient 3-Watt (3W) high power LEDs for solid-state lighting (SSL) applications. Avago’s ASMT-Ax3x Power LED emitter has a footprint that is one of the most commonly used throughout the SSL industry. Typical applications include architectural lighting, retail display lighting and decorative lighting.
Avago’s ASMT-Ax3x provides superior light output uniformity with a wide viewing angle of 140 degrees which is suitable for backlighting of advertising displays, channel letters and contour lighting. The ASMT-Ax3x delivers high flux output up to 113 lumens (lm) at 350 mA driving current and features a maximum allowable junction temperature of 135 degrees-C to provide lighting designers with more design flexibility. Moreover, this LED has a high Electrostatic Discharge (ESD resistance of 16kV which makes this LED insensitive to ESD. As a result, special ESD protection equipment is not required to handle the part during installation. Additionally, this part is compatible to IR reflow soldering process.
The ASMT-Ax3x is encapsulated in a heat and UV resistant silicone compound and also features a low thermal resistance of 10 degree-C per Watt due to its superior heat dissipation capability. In addition, the electrically neutral heat pad allows arrays to be connected on a common heat sink – thus simplifying thermal design.
