850nm infrared LED outputs 770mW at 1A

July 11, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Designed for infrared illumination for cameras, surveillance systems or machine vision, the Oslon Black SFH 4715A infrared emitting diode (IRED) boasts a low thermal resistance of maximum 11K/W, delivering a 850nm beam with an optical output of 770mW at 1A.

Higher outputs can be achieved with stack versions, in which two emission centers are provided per chip. The device features a low component height of 2.3 mm.

The device is ESD safe up to 2 kV and will soon be qualified to AEC-Q101-REV-C for automotive use.
