Vishay Intertechnology Offers Super Red, Soft Orange, Yellow, Yellow Green, Blue, and White Ultra-Bright LEDs in Compact 0402 ChipLED Package

Devices Measure 1.0 mm by 0.5 mm With Ultra-Low 0.35 mm Profile, Provide Luminous Intensity to 180 mcd

MALVERN, Pa. - The Optoelectronics group of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new series of super red, soft orange, yellow, yellow green, blue, and white ultra-bright LEDs in a tiny surface-mount 0402 ChipLED package. Measuring 1.0 mm by 0.5 mm with an ultra-thin 0.35 mm profile, VLMx1500-GS08 series devices provide exceptional brightness with a luminous intensity to 180 mcd.

While the blue and white LEDs in the VLMx1500-GS08 series use highly efficient InGaN technology, the super red, soft orange, yellow, and yellow green devices utilize the latest advanced AllnGaP technology to increase light output by a factor of three. With their high brightness and small size, VLMx1500-GS08 series LEDS are the perfect choice for reliable performance in indicator and backlighting for audio and video equipment; office equipment; LCDs, switches, and symbols; interior and exterior lighting; and indoor and outdoor message boards.

Super red, soft orange, yellow, yellow green, and blue devices are grouped by luminous intensity, wavelength, and forward voltage, and they offer an extremely wide viewing angle of 130°. The white LEDs are chromaticity coordinated categorized according to CIE 1931, per packing unit, with typical coordinates of 0.294 (x) and 0.286 (y) and a typical color temperature of 7,000 K.

VLMx1500-GS08 series LEDs are available in 8 mm tape. RoHS-compliant and Vishay GREEN, the devices are compatible with IR-reflow soldering processes and preconditioned according to JEDEC Level 2a.
