Avago Technologies is adding a 1W warm white light-emitting diode (LED) to its family of Moonstone power LEDs. Available in one of the industry's thinnest packages, Avago's ASMT-MY00 LED provides designers of solid-state lighting applications with a competitively robust and reliable package that provides high-brightness illumination and easy installation. Avago's ASMT-MY00 is suitable for applications that require ultra-high-brightness LEDs, such as decorative lights, garden lights, task and reading lights, architectural, accent and marker lights.
Avago's ASMT-MY00 high-brightness LED package, which features a smooth radiation pattern and 110-degree viewing angle, is a high-performance energy-efficient device developed to withstand high operating temperatures and driving currents. With an exposed pad design, this 1W warm white power LED provides excellent heat transfer from the package to the motherboard to enable the ASMT-MY00 to be driven at a current of 350mA. Moreover, this LED delivers up to 56 lumens to provide superior lumens-per-watt efficiency.
With its low-profile design, Avago's ASMT-MY00 LED provides manufacturers with two significant advantages. First, it can be easily soldered using conventional surface-mount (SMT) techniques to minimise production costs and, second, the package is qualified to a JEDEC moisture sensitivity level (MSL) rating of 2A. For manufacturers, this rating means that the ASMT-MY00 LEDs can be kept in the open air (30degC, 60 per cent relative humidity) for up to four weeks after being removed from their sealed package without the need to remove absorbed moisture.
With the addition of the ASMT-MY00 warm white LED to its Moonstone LED series, Avago can now provide customers with a wider selection of 1-Watt power LEDs. In addition to warm white, Avago also offers these 1-Watt Moonstone LEDs in blue, green and cool white.
