Rutronik is now stocking Vishay’s new series of power MiniLEDs in ultra-compact 2.3 x 1.3 x 1.4mm SMD packages. Utilising the latest advanced AllnGaP technology, the VLMx234 series provides exceptional brightness with a typical luminous intensity of 3500mcd and maximum luminous intensity of 4900mcd at 70mA, while delivering improved thermal performance.
The high-intensity LEDs provide low thermal resistance junction/ambient of 325K/W and power dissipation up to 200mW, which enables high drive currents up to 70mA. The devices” small size and high luminous intensity make them suitable for automotive applications. Offered in super red (900 to 2240mcd), red, amber and yellow (all 1400 to 3550mcd), the AEC-Q101-qualified LEDs can be used for interior and exterior lighting, dashboard illumination, indicators and backlighting for A/V and industrial equipment, LCD switches and symbols and illuminated advertising.
The VLMx234 LED series feature a ±60° angle of half-intensity and a luminous intensity ratio per packing unit of less than 1.6. They are categorised, per packaging unit, for luminous intensity and colour.
