Avago launches 1W warm-white Moonstone power LED for solid-state lighting

Avago Technologies of San Jose, CA, USA has added a 1 Watt warm-white LED (with color temperatures of 2600-4000K) to its family of Moonstone power LEDs, which already includes 1W Moonstone LEDs in blue, green and cool-white colors.

Available in one of the industry’s thinnest packages (8.5mm wide by 15.85mm long by just 3.3mm high), the ASMT-MY00 LED provides a robust and reliable package that provides high-brightness illumination and easy installation, and is suited to solid-state lighting applications that require ultra-high-brightness LEDs, such as decorative lights, garden lights, task and reading lights, architectural, accent and marker lights.

The ASMT-MY00 high-brightness surface-mount package, which feature a smooth radiation pattern and 110-degree viewing angle, has been developed to withstand high operating temperatures and driving currents. An exposed pad design provides low thermal resistance (10 C/W) between the LED chip junction and printed circuit board to minimize temperature rise and help assure long-term device reliability. Heat transfer from the package to the motherboard via the exposed pad design enables the LED to be driven at a forward current of 350mA and deliver up to 56 lumens. Typical total luminous flux is 50 lumens.

With its low profile design (suited to applications where height is a constraint), the ASMT-MY00 can be easily soldered using conventional surface mount (SMT) techniques to minimize production costs, and the package is qualified to a JEDEC moisture sensitivity level (MSL) rating of 2A.

The ASMT-MY00 Moonstone LEDs are priced in the $2.50 range in 10,000 piece quantities.
