Automotive Grade Power LEDs for High Brightness and Drive Current

Vishay introduced new series of surface-mount Automotive Grade power LEDs in PLCC-2 and ultra compact MiniLED packages. VLMx335xx and VLMx235xx series power LEDs utilize the advanced AllnGaP technology in the smallest chip size available, delivering high brightness and maximum drive current up to 50 mA for automotive, industrial, and consumer applications.

These AEC-Q101 qualified LEDs combine low thermal resistance down to 400 K/W with power dissipation of 130 mW, which enables their high drive current. With 2.3 mm by 1.3 mm by 1.4 mm size of VLMx235xx’s MiniLED package and VLMx335xx’s high luminous intensity to 1400 mcd make them a good choice for automotive interior and exterior lighting; traffic signals and signs; and indicators and backlighting for audio and video equipments, LCD switches, and symbols for general use.

Available in different colors as super red, red, amber, soft orange, and yellow, the LEDs feature a lead-frame embedded in a white thermoplast, with an inside reflector filled with a clear epoxy. The devices offer a ± 60° angle of half-intensity, forward voltage down to 1.8 V, a luminous intensity ratio per packing unit of ≤ 1.6, and are categorized, per packing unit, for luminous intensity and color.

RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, the LEDs are available in 8 mm tape, offer an ESD-withstand voltage up to 2 kV in accordance with JESD22-A114-B, and are compatible with preconditioning according to JEDEC Level 2a.
