Avago Technologies Announces New Energy Efficient 1-Watt High-Power LED Emitter for Solid-state Lighting Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 6, 2009— Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced a new competitively priced 1-Watt high power LED emitter for use in solid-state lighting applications. Avago’s energy efficient ASMT-Ax00 LED features a low-profile package design, wide 130-degree viewing angle, and the ability to handle high thermal and drive currents. Available in a variety of colors, this LED is ideal for use in architectural, contour, retail display, decorative and garden lighting applications.

Solid-state lighting equipment manufacturers are constantly in need of brighter, more reliable high power LED packages. Avago’s ASMT-Ax00 is a high performance LED designed to handle high thermal and high drive currents. By delivering a high flux output of up to 76 lumens (lm) at 350mA, this LED features a maximum allowable junction temperature of 125 degrees-C and high ESD resistance of 16 kV. Moreover, the ASMT-Ax00 is compatible with standard SMT reflow soldering processes to provide lighting designers with more freedom and flexibility in designing their applications.

Avago’s ASMT-Ax00 LED emitter is encapsulated in a heat and UV resistant silicone compound for high reliability and long life. The ASMT-Ax00 is ideal for use in lighting applications where height is a constraint and provides designers of solid-state lighting applications with a wide viewing angle, and superior heat dissipation.
