The high-brightness black top surface tri-color PLCC-6 family of SMT LEDs from Avago Technologies (San Jose, CA) has a separate heat path for each LED dice, enabling the LED to be driven at higher current. The SMT LEDs are high-reliability devices designed for a wide range of environmental conditions.

By integrating the black top surface, the devices deliver better contrast enhancement. They provide a wide viewing angle at 120° with the built-in reflector pushing up the intensity of the light output. The high-reliability characteristics, such as a silicone-encapsulated package, and other features make the PLCC-6 family ideal for exterior and interior full color signs application conditions.

The LEDs are shipped in EIA-compliant tape and reel. Every reel is shipped from a single intensity and color bin, except red color providing better uniformity. The tri-color LEDs are compatible with reflow soldering process.
