An app note(PDF) from OSRAM on LED stresses due to chemical compatibilities on their applications. The performance and stability of light emitting diodes (LEDs) may be influenced by various chemical incompatibilities arising from chemicals and materials used, amongst other things, in luminaire construction, or by gases in the proximate environment of LEDs during field operation. […]
LEDs maximum performance are primary determined by its thermal property stresses, See OSRAM’s app note(PDF). This application note focuses on how to develop an adequate thermal management for LEDs in camera flash applications.
How to use SMD LEDs to replace through hole LEDs, this app note (PDF) from OSRAM discusses about light guides/pipes, backlighting and lenses to channel its display efficiently. The use of SMT-TOPLED varies greatly from the use of traditional through hole LEDs. Historically through hole LEDs have been incorporated directly into front panels using the […]
