Avago Technologies Ltd has delivered a fresh lineup of SMT LEDs that provide a narrow 50-degree viewing angle and a matched radiation pattern.

The PLCC-4 HSMx-A46x series LEDs come in high-brightness red, amber and orange. They are housed in single-chip packages that tolerate harsh conditions found in automotive and indoor/outdoor sign applications to produce higher light output compared to PLCC-2 SMT LEDs, said Avago. The new line is suitable for use in instrument panel backlighting, dome lighting, turn signals and center height mounted stoplights in automobiles, as well as interior/exterior variable message signs. They can also be used for pushbutton and signal lighting in industrial applications.

As an extension of the standard flat top PLCC-4 SMT LEDs, the HSMx-A46x with lens device provides a narrow viewing angle to meet the needs of applications that require focused radiation and high brightness, said Avago. It is also said to deliver reliable performance over a wide temperature range of -40C to 100C.

These LEDs can be soldered using conventional surface-mount techniques to minimize production costs, and the package is qualified to a JEDEC moisture sensitive level rating of 2A. This rating means that the HSMx-A46x can be kept in the open air (30C, 60 percent relative humidity) for up to four weeks after being removed from its sealed package without the need to remove absorbed moisture.

Supplied in 8mm carrier tape on 7-inch reels, the HSMx-A46x LEDs are priced at 16 cents each in quantities of 10,000. Samples and production quantities with a four-week lead time are available now through Avago's direct sales channel and distribution partners.
