The Optoelectronics group of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE:VSH) has introduced a new series of super red, red, amber, and yellow ultra-bright LEDs in compact untinted surface-mount packages with dome lenses. Utilizing the latest ultra-bright AllnGaP on Si chip technology, the Vishay Semiconductors VLD.1235.. series delivers the industry’s highest brightness with luminous intensity to 35500 mcd.

With their high brightness and small 2.3 mm by 2.3 mm by 2.8 mm footprints, the LEDs released today are the perfect choice for reliable performance in a wide range of applications, including traffic signals and signs, interior and exterior lighting, and indicators and backlighting for audio and video equipment, visible light barriers, appliances, and industrial equipment.

Available in gullwing and reverse gullwing versions, the devices offer high luminous flux and incorporate larger chip sizes to withstand drive currents up to 70 mA. The LEDs offer a narrow +/- 11^0 angle of half intensity and withstand ESD voltages up to 2 kV in accordance with JESD22-A114-B. The devices are luminous- and color-categorized per packing unit.

RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green, VLD.1235.. series LEDs are compatible with reflow soldering processes per J-STD-020 and preconditioned according to JEDEC Level 2a.
