New GaAlAs and GaAlAs/GaAlAs Discrete Infrared LEDs Meet Rising Demand for Infrared Technology in Wireless Applications and Intelligent Imaging Systems

  |  Download Hi-res Print Version

TORRANCE, CA — December 6, 2002 — LEDtronics® announces its newest line of Infrared Discrete LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) that fulfill the demand for high-powered, high-speed emitters in wireless connectivity, imaging systems and analysis equipment. These LEDs use advanced semi-conductor compounds to produce infrared emissions in the wavelengths of 850nm, 880nm and 940nm. Sizes available are T1 (3mm), T1-3/4 (5mm) and SMT (3.4mm x 8mm). T1 (3mm) and T13/4 (5mm) LEDs come with strong leads that hold up to the stress of wire-wrap and through-hole applications. The SMT model is packaged in a plastic housing that allows infrared functionality to be incorporated into miniature-sized electronic devices. The T1 model has an 18°-angle of emission. T1-3/4 infrared LEDs are available in two emission angles: (1) 40° medium and (2) 20° standard. The SMT model has an emission angle of 120°. IR LEDs extend the functionality of unmanned transportation systems, further interactive communication between remote devices, and strengthen the impervious nature of fiber optic systems.

Infrared LEDs are ideal light sources for use with night vision goggles, surveillance cameras, medical imaging, recognition and calibration systems. Due to their resistance to ambient-light impediments and electromagnetic interference (EMI), Infrared LEDs enhance the performance of wireless computer-to-PDA links, collision avoidance systems, automation equipment, biomedical instrumentation, telecommunications equipment. Solid-state design renders Infrared LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), Infrared LEDs operate reliably year-after-year.

Founded in 1983, LEDtronics® leads where others only follow when it comes to designing, manufacturing and packaging state-of-the-art LEDs to meet the world's constantly changing lighting needs. Our inventive product line encompasses an array of direct incandescent lamp replacement Based LEDs, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LEDs, high intensity sunlight-visible Discrete LEDs, PCB LEDs circuit board status indicators, surface mount diodes SMT LEDs, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.

Prices for Infrared Discrete LEDs range from $0.26 - $1.87 each in quantity of 1,000 depending on the technology. Availability is stock to 4 - 6 weeks for special requirements. For qualified customers, samples are available to meet your design requirements.
