The Optoelectronics group of Vishay Intertechnology has introduced a series of true green LEDs in a compact surface-mount 0603 ChipLED package. Measuring 1.6mm by 0.8mm with an ultra-thin 0.55mm profile, the VLMTG1400 series devices utilize the most recent ultrabright InGaN chip technology to achieve luminous intensity up to 2,800mcd.
With their high brightness and small size, the PCB-based devices are ideal for small scale products that are expected to work reliably in arduous environments.
The LEDs provide designers with increased design-in flexibility and high performance in backlight keypads and displays for navigation systems, cell phones, industrial control systems, and traffic signals and message boards.
The VLMTG1400 series features luminous intensity from 1,200 mcd to 2,800 mcd at 20 mA, a typical wavelength of 525 nm, and forward voltage from 2.75 V to 3.2 V.
The devices are grouped by luminous intensity, wavelength, and forward voltage, and they offer an extremely wide viewing angle of 146°.
Available in 8mm tape, the LEDs are RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green; compatible with IR-reflow soldering processes; and preconditioned according to JEDEC Level 2a.
Samples and production quantities of the VLMTG1400 series are available now, with lead times of eight weeks for larger orders.
