Avago introduces 3-Watt LED emitters for solid-state lighting applications

Avago Technologies Ltd has introduced a 3W miniature high power LED for use in a wide range of solid-state lighting applications. With dimensions of 5 mm x 4 mm x 1.85 mm thick, Avago's 3W ASMT-Jx32 is packaged in a 6-leaded small outline package (SOP). It is capable of being driven to 700 mA to provide high flux output performance, says the firm.

By delivering a high flux output of a minimum of 100 lumens (lm) at 350mA driving current, Avago says that the ASMT-Jx32 is ideal for safety exit and emergency lighting, portable lighting applications, street lighting, residential lighting, task lighting, and other solid-state lighting applications requiring high flux output performance.

The ASMT-Jx32 provides a wide viewing angle of 140-degrees. It features a maximum allowable junction temperature of 135 degrees-C to provide greater design flexibility. The LED has high Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) resistance of 16 kV, which makes it insensitive to ESD. As a result, special ESD protection equipment is not required to handle the part during installation. Moreover, this 3W LED is compatible with standard SMT reflow soldering process.

Avago’s ASMT-Jx32 is encapsulated in a heat and UV resistant silicone material and also features a low thermal resistance of 9 degree-C per Watt. In addition, the electrically neutral heat pad allows arrays to be connected on a common heat sink.
