Vishay launches long-life 18mW mid-power UVC LED in 3.5mm x 3.5mm x 1.2mm ceramic/quartz SMD package

Vishay Intertechnology Inc of Malvern, PA, USA has launched a ceramic mid power ultraviolet (UVC) light-emitting diode for sterilization, sanitation and purification applications.

Designed to replace mercury UVC lamps, the Vishay Semiconductors VLMU35CM..-280-120 delivers what is claimed to be an extremely long lifetime in a compact 3.5mm x 3.5mm x 1.2mm surface-mount package.

Featuring a quartz window, the device has an emission angle of ± 60° and radiant power to 18mW at a current of 100mA without the need for an external lens. Fabricated using aluminium gallium nitride (AlGaN) technology, the VLMU35CM..-280-120 features forward current up to 150mA, forward voltage down to 4V, and a wavelength range of 270-290nm.

The LED’s specifications make it suitable for water and air purification, physical surface sterilization, medical disinfection and portable sanitizers. RoHS-compliant, halogen-free and Vishay Green, the VLMU35CM..-280-120 is compatible with reflow soldering processes and features a Moisture Sensitivity Level of 3 in accordance with J-STD-020.

Samples of are available now. Production quantities are available with lead times of four weeks.
