Designers and manufacturers of video screens, indoor and outdoor display signs and gaming equipment will appreciate Avago Technologies' new line of high-brightness, high-resolution surface-mount LEDs .

Avago said the ASMT-YTx2 tricolor devices come in 3.4x 2.8x 1.8mm PLCC-6 packages. Their high contrast ratio, coupled with the small footprint and high-brightness performance make them ideal for video screens, advertising signs in transit malls, airports, and stadium scoreboards and gaming machines with decorative lighting, the company added.

The LEDs, which were announced at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies Japan 2010, come encased in a heat-resistant silicone material and have six leads that provide flexible color control for each chip. Compliance with IPx6 means they are also water-resistant.
