Osram Opto Semiconductors now enables remote control functionality to be incorporated in a lower profile than ever before thanks to the first flush-mountable infrared LED. The compact side-looking T-shaped Midled SFH 4140 offers high radiant intensity and protrudes only a fraction of a millimeter from the PC board. Now an infrared transmitter can be integrated into extra-thin smartphones or tablet computers. Features include:
• A T-shaped transmitter which takes up only 4.6 mm2 of board space.
• Beam angle of +/-25 degrees.
• 50 milliwatts per steradian (mW/sr) of typical radiant intensity from 100 mA drive current.
