LED Luminaries

LED news and insight from our technology editor Steve Bush, who has been messing with LED lighting for more years than he would care to remember.

Lumileds indicates with red and amber car lights

SignalSureLumileds has introduced an LED specifically for car indicators, writes Steve Bush.

Called SignalSure, the LEDs are AEC-Q101 qualified and meet Japanese and SAE/ECE requirements.

“Reliability and confidence in a surface mount signalling product has been our design objective from the start,” said Paul Martin, director for automotive LEDs.

In qualification testing, the LEDs “are exposed to extreme heat, humidity, and high levels of sulphur gas. Lumileds simulates high-voltage jump start and high voltage alternator failure,” said the firm.

Two devices are available, the red-orange (620nm) SMD075-LO81, and the amber (591nm) SMD075-LA81.

Both can be run up to 75mA, come in PLCC-4 packages, and have a +/-60degree viewing angle.
