OSRAM Opto Semiconductors Inc. announced an addition to its Golden DRAGON family of high-performance, light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The new infrared (IR) Golden DRAGON marks the first available IR, high-power LED in a surface-mount technology (SMT) package.
Optimized for CCD and CMOS camera applications, OSRAM’s IR Golden DRAGON is ideal for automotive night-vision systems and for security system illumination.
The company has leveraged its proprietary, thin-film Golden DRAGON package to now offer its 850 nanometer IR LED emitter. The result is a breakthrough in IR emission technology, as OSRAMís Thin-film technology emits light from the top surface of the die with a built-in reflector to offer exceedingly bright output. These features are ideal for illumination applications requiring high intensity levels, compact design and reduced lighting system energy and cost. Thin-film architecture is additionally scaleable, enabling chip size to be increased without compromising efficacy as with conventional chip design. OSRAM San Jose, Calif. www.Osram-os.com
