These LEDs are ideal for applications including illumination or indication on PC boards, annunciator and control panels, telecom switches and central office equipment, medical equipment, or anywhere a surface mount LED with exceptional heat characteristics is needed.
Koolbrite™ LEDs are available in two families: Single Chip and Dual Chip. All are lead-free.
The Single Chip family uses state-of-the-art chip chemistries to deliver emitted colors including amber, green, red, yellow, and blue. Intensities range from 30 to 70 mcd at If = 20mA with a very wide viewing angle of 180˚.
The Dual Chip family includes devices with bi-color output. Product choices include red/green, red/yellow, and yellow/green. Intensities range from 4 to 12 mcd at If = 20mA with a very wide viewing angle of 180˚.
The exceptional heat characteristics of these LEDs are documented through many tests which include the ability to withstand the 280˚ - 320˚C temperature of a 20W soldering iron for 5 seconds, and a solder dip of 240˚ - 260˚C for 10 seconds.
KoolBrite™ LEDs are available on 8mm tape-and-reel. In addition to the standard devices, application-specific LEDs can be ordered with options including a choice of colors and lens finishes, or IR emitters and sensors.
Samples of the standard-version devices are available from stock, with production quantities in 8 - 10 weeks. Pricing varies depending on model specified and quantities ordered, and is approximately $0.25 each in quantities of 3,000.
