High brightness LEDs optimize automotive exterior lighting performance
April 27, 2012 // Paul Buckley
ROHM Semiconductor has released the company’s new ultra-high-bright PLCC4 LED SML-Y1 Series for optimum light emission, reliability and power efficiency.
Featuring four pins, the series is the latest addition to the PLCC line-up. While providing the same guaranteed operating temperature range (-40°C to 100°C), its derating characteristics have been enhanced compared to PLCC 2 packages. A gold-plated frame is utilized for superior sulfuration resistance.
Suitable for automotive applications such as stop lamps as well as for general consumer electronics, the series supports automotive standards for exterior lighting (611-625) and is available in a variety of colors.
Customers can select from three different models for multiple efficiency and design options - the large current type SML-Y17U2T with a maximum driving current of 150 mA, the high efficiency type SML-Y16U2T (IF max 70 mA), and the standard type SML-Y15U2T (IF max 70 mA)
Samples are now available with volume production starting in June 2012.
