Avago Technologies Introduces 3-Watt Moonstone Cool-White and Warm-White Power LEDs for Solid-State Lighting Apps



Low-Profile Surface-Mount LED Package Provides Ultra-low Thermal Resistance and Easy Installation

MUNICH, Germany, Electronica, November 11, 2008

Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced the addition of new 3-Watt high power Cool-White (ASMT-Mx20) and Warm-White (ASMT-Mx22) low-profile LEDs to its Moonstone(TM) family. Avago's ASMT-Mx20/-Mx22 surface-mount LEDs, which target designers of solid-state lighting applications, are capable of being driven at high currents with typical light output of 145 lumens (lm) of illumination to deliver one of the best output performances in the industry. These 3W LEDs are ideal for use in streetlights, architectural, portable, retail, and lighting applications.

Avago's ASMT-Mx20/-Mx22 Moonstone LEDs offer a wide 120-degree viewing angle, good color and light output uniformity, and low thermal resistance to maintain long-term device reliability. Moreover, the low-profile design of these LEDs is ideal for use in applications where height is a constraint. The ASMT-Mx20/-Mx22 are compatible with standard surface-mount technology (SMT) reflow soldering processes and provide designers with ease of handling and more flexibility during assembly.
