Avago’s White SMT LEDs Target Automotive Apps

\[August 1, 2006\] Formidable enough for use in severe environments such as automotive and electric sign applications, the ASMT-SWBM-NU803 surface-mount, white LED comes in a thin, top-mount single-chip PLCC-4. The package is small enough so that two could fit on the head of a typical pencil eraser. Reportedly, its main features are long life and high brightness due to the use of InGaN dice technologies. The package is qualified to a JEDEC moisture sensitive level rating of 2A, which means the ASMT-SWBM can be kept in open air at 30°C and 60% relative humidity up to four weeks after removal from its sealed package without the need to remove absorbed moisture. Other features include an MSL 2A floor life, compatibility with both infrared-reflow and through-the-wave soldering processes, a viewing angle of 120°, and an operating temperature from -40°C to +100°C. Price is $0.38 each/620,000. AVAGO TECHNOLOGIES, Santa Clara, CA. (800) 235-0312.
