Avago launches into high-power LED sector

The privately-owned semiconductor business formerly known as Agilent takes on the power LED market with a new line of products headed by 1W white, green and blue emitters.

Avago Technologies, the chipmaker previously known as Agilent's semiconductor products group, has entered the high-power LED market with the first in a series of 1 W emitters.

Designed for use in new applications such as outdoor lighting and display backlights, the InGaN-based LEDs are available in blue, green and, when coupled with a color-converting phosphor, white.

Previously, Avago had concentrated on lower-power LED products and had not competed so directly with companies such as Lumileds, Nichia and Cree in the high-power arena.

The new ASMT-MX00 products are said to be the first in a series of devices operating at 1 W power dissipation and 350 mA forward current.

The new line-up features green emitters producing a total luminous flux of 40 lumens, 10 lumens in blue and 35 lumens in white. White color temperatures ranging from 4500K to 10,000K are available.

Avago was sold by Agilent in late 2005 to two investment banks, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Silver Lake Partners (see related story).

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
