High-Current LED Boosts Projector Brightness

The latest generation of OSTAR compact LED provides more light output and is characterized by improved high-current capability and lower thermal resistance. It can handle up to 6A in pulsed mode, making it suitable for pico and pocket projectors. Residing in the same 3.9 mm x 3.6 mm package as the previous version, the LED can be pulsed up to 6A, achieving 350 lm in amber, 600 lm in green, and 165 lm in blue in pulsed mode (typically 120 Hz, 2 ms, Ts= 25°C). Due to a unique packaging material, its thermal resistance has been reduced to 3 K/W, compared to 6 K/W for the previous version. OSRAM OPTO SEMICONDUCTORS, San Jose, CA. (888) 446-7726.
