Compact High Brightness White LEDs
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. announced its model TLWK1100B compact high-efficiency white LED. This LED offers luminous intensity levels of 1,500 mcd from a drive current of 20 mA (typical value). The robust design makes it suitable for automotive lighting designs, LCD backlighting, panel indicators and the replacement of incandescent bulbs in certain lighting applications. The LED is available in a standard PLCC2 surface-mount package that measures 3.2 mm × 2.9 mm × 1.9 mm. Its high brightness white light output is a result of a combination of a blue InGaN (indium gallium nitride) LED and yellow-emitting phosphor. Operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +100°C.
