OPTEK Technology (New York, NY) has developed a full-color surface mount LED package called the OVSPRGBCR4. The package offers RGB color capabilities, a high CRI rating, and full 130° viewing angle. Applications for the OVSPRGBCR4 include automotive interior and exterior lighting, architectural indoor and outdoor lighting, LED backlighting, and general illumination. The OVSPRGBCR4 has a DC forward current of 250mA, a peak pulsed forward current of 500mA, and a thermal resistance of 20K/W. Typical luminous flux for the red, green and blue LEDs is 21 lm, 32 lm, and 7.5 lm, with a typical on-axis intensity of 7cd, 11cd, and 2.8cd, respectively. Maximum rated junction temperature is 125°C and the operating temperature range is -40°C to +100°C.
