Avago Technologies has launched a 1W warm white light emitting diode (LED) to its family of Moonstone power LEDs. The ASMT-MY00 LED is a compact, robust and reliable package that provides high brightness illumination. It is suitable for decorative lights, garden lights, task and reading lights, architectural, accent and marker lights.
The LED features a smooth radiation pattern and 110° viewing angle. It is energy efficient and can withstand high operating temperatures and driving currents. Benefiting from an exposed pad design, the LED provides excellent heat transfer from the package to the motherboard to enable the ASMT-MY00 to be driven at a current of 350mA. The LED delivers up to 56 lumens at excellent lumens-to-watt efficiency.
The LED can be easily soldered using conventional surface mount techniques to minimise production costs, and the package is qualified to a JEDEC moisture sensitivity level (MSL) rating of 2A. This means that it can be placed in the open air for up to four weeks without the need to remove absorbed moisture. Its dimensions are 8.5 x 15.85 x 3.3mm.
