Osram introduces smaller Topled

News
New low-power LEDs combine smaller package with versatility 
Osram Opto Semiconductors has announced a new generation of its Topled LEDs called the Topled E1608, with package smaller than its predecessor models by factor 20.

The low-power LED is bright, reliable and robust, says Osram, offering greater design flexibility, particularly for car interior applications.

The E1608 in the name refers to the more compact package dimensions of 1.6 mm x 0.8 mm; by comparison, the standard Topled currently measures 3.2 mm x 2.8 mm. At 0.6 mm the height of the E1608 is also considerably less than the previous figure of 1.9 mm.

The low-power LEDs produce a normal operating current of 20 mA and are 3.6 times brighter than their predecessor models. The pure green conversion version, for example, achieves the value of 780 mcd at 10 mA. At the same current it is three times brighter than the classic Topled.

For the package, Osram uses tried and tested premold technology, but reduced in size compared to the previous version.

"The new Topled E1608 LEDs are some of the smallest LEDs in their class. In addition, they offer reliability, a wide selection of colours and impressive values. Whatever the customer requirements they are suitable whether the application is toward to top or bottom of the brightness range. We are assuming therefore that they will gradually become firmly established and may even define a new industry standard", said Anita Wenzl, manager LED Automotive Interior at Osram Opto Semiconductors.

"These robust LEDs are suitable particularly for the automotive sector for applications such as displays, ambient lighting and backlighting of switches and instruments."

The new Topled generation will be available in numerous colours "“ from yellow and orange to super red, white, pure green and true green. The current market launch of six Topled E1608 products is the start of a whole series of new versions in this product family. In the course of 2017 more new versions will be successively launched.
