Farnell extends semiconductor range with Osram Opto family

LEDs, infra red emitters, photodiodes and optical sensors from Osram Opto Semiconductor have been added to the semiconductor portfolio by Farnell.

The Osram range extends Farnell’s line card to provide customers with products to support applications in markets such as automotive, mobile, smart grid, metering, industrial, office and building automation, energy management and network infrastructure.

The distributor now ships the Olson Black family of infra red LEDs. Now with dedicated automotive versions that include the 850nm version for exterior applications such as night vision, pedestrian protection, pre-field recognition and lane detection. The 940nm version is targeted at interior automotive applications such as driver monitoring, seat occupancy detection and gesture recognition. The LEDs have different wavelengths and lenses and can be operated at up to 5A in pulse mode.

There is also the SFH 2200 family of photodiodes. The package allows them to be soldered without any damage for up to one year after initial contact with air, compared to only three days for typical standard products, reports Farnell. The package is approved up to an operating temperature of 125 degrees C. The SFH 2200 devices meet the requirements for AEC-Q101-C qualification and are particularly suitable for use in rain sensors.

The TOPLED E1608 family of low-power LEDs is also in a smaller package and are particularly suited to automotive applications such as displays, ambient lighting and backlighting of switches and instruments.

Other LEDs are the SFH 4776 broadband infra red LED range. They are suitable for near-infra red spectroscopy techniques for measuring parameters such as the water, fat, sugar and protein content of food and pharmaceutical products.

The SYNIOS P2720 platform consists of 15 LED products with different chip sizes, power ratings and colours which can be configured within a single footprint. The LEDs have high thermal reliability and high brightness and the devices can be scaled for cost-effective automotive and light design.
