Avago Technologies Introduces New Family of High-Brightness Surface Mount Tricolor LEDs for Indoor and Outdoor Full Color Signs and Video Displays

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 29, 2008— Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today introduced a new family of compact high-brightness tricolor surface mount (SMT) LEDs for indoor and outdoor full color signs and video displays. Avagos ASMT-YTB0 LEDs, which are available in a PLCC-6 package, provides full color display and video application designers with better color control and contrast, and a 115-degree viewing angle. With dimensions of 4.4 mm by 4.4 mm by 3.5 mm, this new family of LEDs from Avago also incorporates silicone material to extend light output performance over time.

Avagos compact ASMT-YTB0 package is specially designed to meet indoor and outdoor LED screen requirements for better screen resolution (greater than 12mm pixel size), and high-brightness performance. It also has six-leads to enable individual color control of each color chip to display a multitude of colors including white and enhanced thermal management. The ASMT-YTB0 incorporates a separate heat path for each LED dice to enable it to be driven at higher currents. As a result, these SMT LEDs can operate in a wide range of environmental conditions to provide customers with high reliability. These new tricolor LEDs are ideal for use in indoor and outdoor video screens, advertising displays and stadium scoreboards.

The family of ASMT-YTB0 LEDs are compatible with reflow soldering processes and have a moisture sensitivity level of 2a (MSL 2a) to make them ideal for use in SMT production environments.


  • Individual Anode/Cathode terminal to enable the display of all colors with better color control and on each individual chip
  • Compact tricolor PLCC-6 package for high contrast ratio and screen resolution
  • 115-degree viewing angle
  • Silicone encapsulation material enables high reliability and long operating life (over 50,000 hours)
  • Compatible with reflow soldering processes
  • Low thermal resistance
  • Pb-Free and RoHS compliant
  • Moisture sensitivity: JEDEC MSL 2a

U.S. Pricing and Availability

Avagos ASMT-YTB0 LEDs are priced at $0.60 each in minimum quantities of 1,000 pieces. Samples and production quantities are available now through Avagos direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
