BivarOpto has announced the availability of a new line of RGB Super Flux Mako LEDs that have wavelengths from 400nm to 700nm, viewing angle of 60, and are suitable for use in full-color outdoor applications such as traffic signs and stadium scoreboards.

The devices feature a modular design that enables LEDs of various colors to be fitted tightly together to create a grid-type solid color display. Each LED has a footprint of 7.6mm? and features 5.08mm "grid-spaced" PCB pins with integral standoffs to allow insertion into industry-standard through-hole circuitry.

The RGB LEDs utilize a large heatsink, reflector based lead frame that allows the placement of three individually addressable LED die. Each LED chip shares the basic optics, reflector and lens, with the other two chips creating three unique LEDs. The design engineer can then vary the amount of current in each chip to achieve any color desired.

The RGB Super Flux Mako LED series features a continuous forward current of 100mA and average forward current of 30mA at 2.4V to 4.6V forward voltage.
