High-power infrared LED for security applications

8 March 2006 Opto-Electronics

Claimed to be the first available high-power infrared light-emitting diode in a surface-mount technology (SMT) package, Osram Opto Semiconductors' new infrared (IR) Golden Dragon LED is ideally suited for applications in automotive night-vision systems and for security system illumination.

Osram's Golden Dragon package is designed for high power output in a small footprint. Optimised for CCD and CMOS camera applications, the 850 nm IR Golden Dragon LED can illuminate broad areas, eliminating the need for complex optics, according to the company.

Osram's thin-film chip technology is an 'industry first,' providing increased optical output, better optical coupling, lower forward voltages and improved thermal performance compared with previous chip construction. Conventional LED chip technologies utilise creative structures with the drawback of side emission losses that can reduce the light output and reduce thermal performance.
