OPTEK Technology introduces its OVSRRGBCC3 surface mount RGB LED with a 150° viewing angle. The three separate diodes are housed in a miniature surface mount package that is compatible with both automatic pick-and-place equipment as well as infrared and vapor phase solder reflow processes. Applications include automotive dashboard and switch backlighting, telecommunications backlighting in telephones and faxes, and flat backlighting for LCDs, switches and symbols. The full-color surface mount LED package is composed of a red, green and blue LEDs with a white diffused lens. The red LED features AllnGaP material with a typical intensity of 125 mcd; the green and blue LEDs use InGaN material, and the red LED has continuous forward current of 30 mA with a power dissipation of 78 mW.
