Super bright coloured LEDs delivered in 1.0x0.5x0.35mm 0402 ChipLED packages

August 17, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The Optoelectronics group of Vishay Intertechnology has released a new series of super red, soft orange, yellow, yellow green, blue, and white ultra-bright LEDs in a tiny surface-mount 0402 ChipLED package measuring just 1.0x0.5 x0.35mm.

The VLMx1500-GS08 series devices provide exceptional brightness with a luminous intensity up to 180 mcd. While the blue and white LEDs in the VLMx1500-GS08 series use highly efficient InGaN technology, the super red, soft orange, yellow, and yellow green devices use the latest advanced AllnGaP technology to increase light output by a factor of three. With their high brightness and small size, VLMx1500-GS08 series LEDS are suitable indicator and backlighting applications. The colour LEDs are grouped by luminous intensity, wavelength, and forward voltage, they offer a wide viewing angle of 130°. The white LEDs are chromaticity coordinated categorized according to CIE 1931, per packing unit, with typical coordinates of 0.294 (x) and 0.286 (y) and a typical color temperature of 7,000 K.

VLMx1500-GS08 series LEDs are available in 8 mm tape. RoHS-compliant and Vishay GREEN, the devices are compatible with IR-reflow soldering processes and preconditioned according to JEDEC Level 2a.
