Date Announced: 06 Jan 2009 New Competitively Priced Low-Profile LED Light Source is Ideal for Use in Architectural, Decorative, Garden and Retail Display ApplicationsAvago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced a new competitively priced 1-Watt high power LED emitter for use in solid-state lighting applications. Avago’s energy efficient ASMT-Ax00 LED features a low-profile package design, wide 130-degree viewing angle, and the ability to handle high thermal and drive currents. Available in a variety of colors, this LED is ideal for use in architectural, contour, retail display, decorative and garden lighting applications.Solid-state lighting equipment manufacturers are constantly in need of brighter, more reliable high power LED packages. Avago’s ASMT-Ax00 is a high performance LED designed to handle high thermal and high drive currents. By delivering a high flux output of up to 76 lumens (lm) at 350mA, this LED features a maximum allowable junction temperature of 125 degrees-C and high ESD resistance of 16 kV. Moreover, the ASMT-Ax00 is compatible with standard SMT reflow soldering processes to provide lighting designers with more freedom and flexibility in designing their applications.Avago’s ASMT-Ax00 LED emitter is encapsulated in a heat and UV resistant silicone compound for high reliability and long life. The ASMT-Ax00 is ideal for use in lighting applications where height is a constraint and provides designers of solid-state lighting applications with a wide viewing angle, and superior heat dissipation.Features • Available in Red, Amber, Green, Blue, Cool White, Neutral White and Warm White colors • Long operating life • Energy efficient • High reliability package due to enhanced silicone resin material • Exposed metal slug for excellent heat transfer • Suitable for reflow soldering processes • Low thermal resistance • Moisture sensitivity: MSL 2a • Pb-Free and RoHS compliant • ESD >16kVU.S. Pricing and AvailabilityAvago’s ASMT-Ax00 LEDs are priced at $1.70 each in 1,000 piece quantities. Samples and production quantities are available now through Avago’s direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.About Avago TechnologiesAvago Technologies is a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications.
