Mid-power UV LED operates at 365 nm

A ceramic-based UV LED, the VLMU1610-365-135 from Vishay provides typical radiant power of 18 mW at 20 mA and 50 mW at 60 mA over a wavelength range of 362.5 nm to 370 nm. The silicone lens of the device enables extremely long lifetimes of up to 25,000 hour, compared to typical...

Simple two-transistor circuit lights LEDs

Barry Tigner @ edn.com has a design idea on how to power a LED from a 1.5V battery using two easily available transistors. A previous Design Idea describes a circuit that uses an astable multivibrator to drive an LED (Reference 1). The circuit in Figure 1 uses a simpler alternative...

Accurately simulate an LED

Jon Roman and Donald Schelle have a design idea on how to simulate a high power led to test your driver circuit. Testing the driver circuit using LEDs, although easy, yields only typical results because the tests don’t factor in worst-case LED parameters and often generate...
