The Golden Dragon ARGUS White LED from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors combines ThinGaN (indium gallium nitride) technology for improved brightness and uniformity with a high efficiency backlighting and illumination lens and chip level conversion technology. Features include an operating temperature range of -40 to +85ºC (-40 to +185ºF) and an operating life of more than 50,000 h. Designed as a compact general-purpose LED, the ARGUS white delivers useable bright light with uniformity for applications such as backlighting and specialty illumination of more than 85%. A low-profile package reduces part count and makes the LED suitable for various lighting applications.
