Newbury Park, CA (PressExposure) February 03, 2011 -- Opto Diode Corporation, a global supplier of advanced performance photodiodes and highly reliable, visible and IR LEDs, has developed the first in a series of high power LED arrays, the OD-850-30-030. The new 30-die near-infrared (NIR) LED array delivers more efficient operation and higher power with a narrow beam angle of 30 degrees. The device has a peak wavelength of 850 nm (min. 840 nm and max. 865 nm) and a total optical power output of 16 watts.
Ideal for night vision systems and skin therapy applications, Opto Diode's NIR light-emitting-diode array is available for shipping in OEM quantities by June 28, 2010. Russ Dahl, director of sales and marketing for Opto Diode, notes, "Making an array results in a much more compact size, compared to using discrete components. This, of course, is critical in applications that have space limitations. Our 30-die NIR LED array also features a narrow beam angle which results in much higher intensities than could be achieved with a chip-on-a-board-type solution."
Thermal parameters for storage range from -40 degrees C to 125 degrees C, with the operating temperature range from -20 degrees C to 100 degrees C. The maximum junction temperature is 125 degrees C with a thermal resistance, junction to case, of 0.8 degrees C per watt.
