American Bright Introduces 1-Watt Power LED Module for Light Engines and Low Power Consumption Applications

Improved thermal management design features exposed metal pad for improved power dissipation; Compact size for portable appliance uses

Chino, CA, June 22, 2005 - American Bright Optoelectronics introduces their new MagnaBrite 1-Watt LED module featuring a new white LED design incorporating a heat sink base capable of handling forward currents to 350mA, and a low profile exposed metal base for easy on-board circuitry installation. The compact design, including heat sink, measures only 10.00mm x 13.00mm, including a low 4.2mm profile. An integral 7mm diameter bezel and flush lens creates an ideal configuration for LCD backlighting, and uses in small lamps, torches and general illumination applications.

The new 1-Watt BWL Series is available in white, red, green, blue and yellow and is offered standard on a PCB base measuring 20.00mm diameter, pre-wired for direct interface with wire-based circuitry. Depending on color (wavelength), material is either AlInGaN or AlGalnP. Performance characteristics include DC forward current (IF) of 350mA, operating temperature ranges of -30° to +120°C, and 1-Watt power dissipation (PD). Viewing intensity, or total flux (Φv) is 30 lumens (lm). Viewing angle is 120°. All configurations are manufactured in compliance with Pb Free (RoHS) materials and processes.

"Realizing the ability of the LED to more efficiently conserve remaining battery power when batteries begin to run down, coupled with the improved intensity of this heat sink- based 1 Watt model and it's thermal management properties, suggests a great opportunity for use in flashlight and portable appliance applications", stated George Lee, President. He further stated, "These low-profile package styles also are most compatible with a wide variety of needs for an strong, simple-to-install illuminating device that fits comfortably into high-density circuitry and systems."

The BWL 1 Watt LED modules are priced from $2.00 each for red in production quantities, and are available from stock or the factory in special configurations. Modules are packaged in auto insertion tubes for direct insertion onto PCBs, 50 pieces per tube, 50 tubes per carton.
