Date Announced: 13 Apr 2010

Avago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced one of the industry’s most compact and energy efficient 3-Watt (3W) miniature high power LEDs for use in a wide range of solid-state lighting applications. With dimensions of 5 mm by 4 mm by 1.85 mm thick, Avago’s compact 3W ASMT-Jx32 is packaged in a 6-leaded small outline package (SOP) and capable of being driven to up to 700 mA to provide high flux output performance. Additionally, this competitively priced compact LED emitter features a wide viewing angle and long life reliability. By delivering a high flux output of a minimum of 100 lumens (lm) at 350mA driving current, this new 3W LED emitter is ideal for safety exit and emergency lighting, portable lighting applications, street lighting, residential lighting, task lighting, and other solid-state lighting applications requiring high flux output performance.

The ASMT-Jx32 provides a wide viewing angle of 140-degrees to meet the needs of designers who require good color uniformity. Avago’s 3W emitter is a high performance LED designed to handle high thermal and high drive currents The ASMT-Jx32 features a maximum allowable junction temperature of 135 degrees-C to provide greater design flexibility to the lighting designers. This LED has high Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) resistance of 16 kV which makes this LED insensitive to ESD. As a result, special ESD protection equipment is not required to handle the part during installation. Moreover, this 3W LED is compatible with standard SMT reflow soldering process.

This LED is encapsulated in a heat and UV resistant silicone material and also features a low thermal resistance of 9 degree-C per Watt due to its superior heat dissipation capability. In addition, the electrically neutral heat pad allows arrays to be connected on a common heat sink – thus simplifying thermal design.
