Press release date: January 7, 2014

Offered in Compact 2.3 mm by 1.3 mm by 1.4 mm SMD Packages, Devices Feature Improved Thermal Performance of 325 K/W

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of a new series of power MiniLEDs in ultra-compact 2.3 mm by 1.3 mm by 1.4 SMD packages. Utilizing the latest advanced AllnGaP technology, the Vishay Semiconductors VLMx234.. series provides exceptional brightness with a typical luminous intensity of 3500 mcd and maximum luminous intensity of 4900 mcd at 70 mA while delivering improved thermal performance compared to previous-generation LEDs.

The high-intensity LEDs released today provide low thermal resistance junction/ambient of 325 K/W and power dissipation up to 200 mW, which in turn enables high drive currents up to 70 mA. The devices' small size and high luminous intensity make them ideal for automotive applications. Offered in super red, red, amber, and yellow, the AEC-Q101-qualified LEDs are ideal for interior and exterior lighting, dashboard illumination, indicators and backlighting for A/V and industrial equipment, LCD switches and symbols, illuminated advertising, and more.

VLMx234.. devices feature a ± 60° angle of half-intensity and a luminous intensity ratio per packing unit of less than 1.6, and are categorized, per packing unit, for luminous intensity and color. Available in 8 mm tape, the LEDs are compatible with IR-reflow soldering processes and preconditioning according to JEDEC Level 2a, and offer an ESD-withstand voltage up to 2 kV according to JESD22-A114-B. The devices are RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.

Device Specification Table:
Part # Color Luminous intensity range (mcd) @ IF (mA)   Wavelength (nm)   Forward voltage max. (V)   @ IF (mA)  
VLMS234.. Super red 900 to 2240 50 630 typ. 2.8 50
VLMR234.. Red 1400 to 3550 50 625 typ. 2.8 50
VLMK234.. Amber 1400 to 3550 50 616 typ. 2.8 50
VLMY234.. Yellow 1400 to 3550 50 589 typ. 2.8 50

Samples and production quantities of the new LEDs are available now, with lead times of six weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $0.065 per piece.
