Avago claims brightest miniature PLCC-2 SMT LEDs for automotive and industrial applications

Avago Technologies of San Jose, CA, USA and Singapore has introduced its ASMT-TxBM range of LEDs, which it claims are the brightest miniature PLCC-2 surface mount (SMT) LEDs for use in interior automotive and industrial applications. 

Avago highlights the need for smaller components as end products continue to shrink in size, and says that the ASMT-TxBM LED series will enable designers to benefit from reduced design costs while achieving better performance in terms of light output and power consumption.   

The ASMT-TxBM LED series, which features viewing angles from 110- to 120-degrees, are ideal for backlighting automotive instrument cluster panels, puddle lighting, center consoles, navigation and audio systems, says the firm. Furthermore, the LEDs can also be used to provide backlighting for buttons, switches and ambient light illumination in industrial applications.

Key features include:

  • Industry standard miniature PLCC-2 package: 1.0 by 2.0 by 1.3mm
  • Wide viewing angle: ASMT-TWBM (Cool White): 110-degrees; ASMT-TBBM (Blue) and ASMT-TGBM (Green): 120-degrees
  • Stable and consistent performance with minimum degradation
  • Available in 8mm carrier tape on 7-inch reel
  • JEDEC MSL 2: LED requires less stringent production environmental control for board assembly
  • Pb-Free and RoHS compliant

Avago’s ASMT-TxBM LEDs are priced from $0.18 to $0.25 each in 10,000 piece quantities.  Samples and production quantities are available now.
