The new VLM.334.. series LEDs, an advanced modification of Vishay’s VLM.31.. series LEDs, can incorporate larger chips and are thus capable of withstanding drive currents up to 70 mA.

The AEC-Q101-qualified VLM.334.. LEDs are offered in super red, red, amber, and yellow to serve a wide range of applications, including traffic signals and signs, interior and exterior lighting, automotive dashboard illumination, indicators and controls for audio and video equipment, LCD switches and symbols, illuminated advertising, and many other uses.

Utilizing the latest advanced AllnGaP technology, the VLM.334.. series devices claim to provide exceptional brightness with a typical luminous intensity of 3760 mcd and maximum luminous intensity of 6052 at 70 mA while delivering improved thermal performance compared to previous-generation LEDs. At 300 K/W, junction-to-ambient thermal resistance is 25% lower than the former VLM.333 product.

VLM.334.. series LEDs are available in 8 mm tape. RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green, the devices are compatible with IR-reflow soldering processes and preconditioned according to JEDEC Level 2a.


Samples and production quantities of the VLM.334.. series LEDs are available now, with lead times of six weeks for larger orders.
