Thu, 07/08/2010 - 6:26am
Opto Diode Corp., 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.
Thermal parameters for storage range from -40 to 125°C, with the operating temperature range from -20 to 100°C. The maximum junction temperature is 125°C with a thermal resistance, junction to case, of 0.8°C per watt.
