BivarOpto, the Optoelectronics Division of Bivar Inc., has introduced a new right-angle surface mount LED indicator for improved fault and status display applications. This new device can be used to replace traditional PC-board through-hole LED assembly displays, or other status indicators where PC-board real-estate is at a premium or a switchover to surface-mount processes is desirable.

The new SRM-32 device, packaged in a 2.4-by-3.2mm footprint, features ingan performance characteristics, and is packaged with a lens centerline 1.4mm from PC-board surfaces for optimal light emission. Designed for versatile color programmability, the SRM-32 can be supplied with single, bi-color or tri-color operation with either a single or dual chip internal PC-board. Lens appearance in the off state is water clear. Peak wavelengths range between 470nm to 660nm, providing full spectrum availability. Axial intensity is 140mcd to 160mcd at 20mA. Forward voltage and current is rated at 4Vf at 20mA.

The SRM-32 LED is manufactured in compliance with WEEE and RoHS lead-free materials and process specifications. The units are encapsulated in a special epoxy blend to ensure compatibility with higher process and operating temperatures. The devices are also compatible with all surface-mount assembly processes and automated insertion equipment.

Applications include front and rear fault or status indicators in mobile and handheld devices, test equipment, telecommunications, industrial controls, computer peripherals, machine tools, and medical diagnostic equipment.
