Avago announces surface-mount round and oval HB LEDs for signage

March 17, 2010
Date Announced: 17 Mar 2010 -- New amber, red, green, and blue LEDs target outdoor and indoor electronic sign and signal manufacturersAvago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced the industry’s first surface mount technology (SMT) high brightness oval and round LED lamps for use in outdoor and indoor electronic sign applications. Available in Amber, Red, Green and Blue colors, Avago’s round ALMD-xx3D and oval ALMD-Lx36 LED lamps target manufacturers of full color and monochrome traffic signs, highway variable message signs, gas station price signs, and full color video wall applications used for advertising.With the increased use of LED lamps in the marketplace, more designers of electronic signs are moving towards using LEDs in their designs that are cost effective, offer high performance, high brightness and reliable long-term performance. Moreover, these designers are choosing SMT LEDs because of their ease of assembly, compact footprint, and manufacturing flexibility which can help to reduce overall system design and development costs. These new SMT High Brightness LED Lamps allow customers to assemble the LEDs utilizing standard industrial SMT manufacturing process. The LEDs are compatible with industrial reflow soldering process. Additionally they deliver on par or slightly less luminous intensity when compared to conventional high brightness through hole LEDs.They are made with an advanced optical grade epoxy to provide superior performance in outdoor sign applications. For easy pick and place assembly, these LED lamps are shipped in EIA-compliant tape and reels. Each reel is shipped from a single intensity and color bin to provide better uniformity.Key Features
