Osram Opto Semiconductors (Sunnyvale, CA) enables remote control functionality to be incorporated in a lower profile with the use of flush-mountable infrared LED. The compact T-shaped Midled SFH 4140 offers high radiant intensity and protrudes only a fraction of a millimeter from the PC board. Now an infrared transmitter can be integrated into extra-thin smartphones or tablet computers. Features include:
- A T-shaped transmitter that takes up only 4.6 mm2 of board space and emits a powerful focused beam to the side.
- A beam angle of +/-25°, which is created by an integrated reflector.
- A radiant intensity that produces 50 mW per steradian @ 100 mA.
- A wavelength of 940 nm.
