Cool White High-Power LED
|Avago Technologies Press Release||FlashlightNews.org - 4/10/2008|
New Moonstone Low-Profile Power LED offers improved lumens per watt efficiency and high flux output of up to 95 lumens
Avago Technologies Moonstone™ LEDs
FRANKFURT, Germany - Avago Technologies today announced its first 1-Watt cool white Moonstone™ power LED emitter for use in a variety of street lamps, portable, task, backlighting, and decorative lighting applications. Avago’s ASMT-MW09 LED features a low profile design and delivers high flux output of up to 95 lumens (lm) at 350mA drive current. Moreover, this new cool white power LED from Avago will enable lighting application designers to achieve greater lumens output without sacrificing lumens per Watt efficiency by using higher drive currents. Avago is a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications.
Available in one of the industry’s thinnest packages, Avago’s ASMT-MW09 is an energy efficient LED emitter that’s encapsulated in a heat and UV resistant silicone compound for high reliability and long life. This competitively priced Moonstone cool white LED emitter provides designers of solid-state lighting applications with a wide viewing angle radiation pattern, superior heat dissipation. Moreover, this new cool white LED is ideal for use in lighting applications where height is a constraint. Typical applications include architectural façade lighting, track lights, spot lights and street lamps.
Residential lighting, as well as portable and street light applications require LED packages capable of emitting high light output. As a result, lighting equipment manufacturers are constantly in need of brighter, more reliable high power LED packages. Avago’s ASMT-MW09 LED offers high reliability and is available in color temperatures ranging from 4,000K to 10,000K to meet these lighting needs.
Avago’s ASMT-MW09 is a high performance energy efficient device which can handle high thermal and high drive current. With an exposed pad design on the back of the package, it has low thermal resistance and is able to efficiently transfer heat from the package to the motherboard to maintain long term reliability. Moreover, the ASMT-MW09 is compatible with standard SMT reflow soldering processes to provide lighting designers with more freedom and flexibility in designing their applications.
In addition to its slim profile, high-brightness, and long life Avago’s ASMT-MW09 series of 1W LEDs provide a significant advantage in the production environment: They can be easily soldered using conventional surface mount techniques to minimize production costs.
