Avago Technologies Announces Industry’s Brightest Miniature PLCC-2 LEDs for Automotive and Industrial Lighting Apps
News Release from:
23 February 2010
Avago Technologies announces the industry's brightness miniature PLCC-2 surface mount (SMT) light emitting diodes (LEDs) for use in interior automotive and industrial applications. Avago's competitively priced ASMT-TxBM LED series, which features viewing angles from 110- to 120-degrees and high reliability, are ideal for backlighting automotive instrument cluster panels, puddle lighting, center consoles, navigation and audio systems. These LEDs can also be used to provide backlighting for buttons, switches and ambient light illumination in industrial applications.
Avago’s ASMT-TxBM LEDs were developed to allow designers to package far greater functionality in their automotive or industrial lighting applications while achieving superior performance in terms of light output and power consumption. Current designers are constantly in need of smaller more reliable components as end products continue to shrink in size while growing in capacity and performance. As a result, the ASMT-TxBM LED series will enable designers to benefit from reduced design costs while achieving better performance of their overall lighting applications in terms of light output and power consumption.
