Avago Technologies announces series of high-brightness LEDs for portable outdoor electronic signs and signal applications

March 13, 2007
Date Announced: 13 Mar 2007 Competitively priced low-power extra-right round through-hole LED lamps offer high performance and reliabilityAvago Technologies today announced a series of low-power high-performance extra-bright round through-hole light emitting diodes (LEDs) for portable and solar-powered outdoor electronic signs and signal applications. Available in red, amber and red-orange, Avago's new HLMP-Exxx series of 5 mm aluminum indium gallium phosphide (AllnGaP).LEDs are highly reliable and provide high luminous intensity with low forward voltage to meet the needs of designers who need a low-power lighting solution. Avago is a leading supplier of innovative semiconductor solutions for advanced communications, industrial and commercial applications.Typical applications for Avago's HLMP-Exxx series of AllnGaP LEDs include outdoor portable commercial full color or monochrome signs and marquees, scoreboards, and traffic management signals such as pedestrian signals, and construction zone warning lights. These LEDs are also ideal for use in signs that are solar-powered, provide variable messages or use channel lettering.Avago's HLMP-Exxx LEDs are competitively priced and available in un-tinted, non-diffused, T 1-3/4 packages to provide well defined spatial radiation patterns at specific viewing cone angles for excellent readability in sunlight. Moreover, these precision optical performance LEDs provide superior light output and are extremely reliable.FeaturesAvago's HLMP-EGxx (red), HLMP-ELxx (amber) and HLMP-EHxx (red-orange) AllnGaP LEDs are available in viewing angles of 15-, 23- and 30-degrees. Other key features:·Developed on one of the industry's brightest AllnGaP dice available to provide high luminous output·Suitable for auto-insertion onto a printed circuit board·Low forward voltage (1.8V - 2.4V) enables low voltage consumption·Package options: With or without lead standoff·Maximum junction temperature: T.max = +130°C·Operating temperature range: -40° C to +100°AvailabilitySamples and production quantities are available now through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.Avago High-Brightness LED and Display Backlighting SolutionsAvago Technologies is one of the largest producers of visible LEDs in the world and ships billions of products annually.
