IR Emitters Reduce Component Count

IR Emitters Reduce Component Count
Vishay Intertechnology Inc.

Vishay's latest 940-nm infrared (IR) emitters in leaded and SMD packages are built on the company’s SurfLight surface emitter chip technology. The devices provide up to five times greater radiant intensity than standard IR emitters, reducing component counts, improving performance, and lowering solution costs in a wide range of applications. They include one leaded 5-mm IR emitter with a parabolic lens and eight SMD devices in 0805, PLCC-2, top-looking, and side-looking packages. The devices emit nearly all the light and power out of the top of the chip. With most of the light concentrated on the surface, higher intensity is achieved, up to 600 mW/sr for the leaded emitter and from 10 mW/sr to 120 mW/sr for the SMD devices. The SurfLight emitters combine their high brightness with narrow angles of half intensity of ± 3° for the leaded device and ± 9° to ± 60° for SMD devices. For automotive applications, the SMD VSMY1940X01 and VSMY3940X01 are AEC-Q101-qualified. Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of eight to 16 weeks for larger orders. Pricing starts at $0.18 each/1,500. Datasheets are available as follows:
• VSLY5940:
• VSMY1940X01:
• VSMY2940RG, VSMY2940G: 
• VSMY3940X01:
