First White Light Source And IR Emitter In One
SLD Laser has launched the first white light chip with a switching function that can emit 905nm and 850nm light
The US manufacturer SLD Laser has launched the first white light chip with a switching function. On command, it transforms into an IR emitter with 905nm and 850nm. Both light sources are housed on the same 7x7mm chip. SMDs are also available with a starboard to facilitate mounting onto the circuit board.
With a luminous flux of 450 lumens and a luminance of 1000Mcd/m², the LaserLight SMD W-IR offers all the advantages of LaserLight white light technology, such as a long range and narrow beam angle, even in this dual function. The IR wavelengths are emitted with an output power of 250mW.
The IR wavelengths of the SMD W-IR are mainly used in motion sensors, night vision cameras, and other professional security systems. This new development opens up numerous application possibilities. Instead of placing motion sensors and lighting in two different components, one element can perform both functions. For example, a surveillance camera automatically illuminates the corresponding area as soon as it detects something suspicious.
This chip is distributed in Europe and the USA by Laser Components.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
