Avago’s ( http://www.avagotech.com ) ASMT-FJ30, the thinnest autofocus LED in the industry, can play a key role in helping digital still camera and camera phone designers to further reduce the overall thickness of those applications.
The ASMT-FJ30 is ideal for use as an auxiliary autofocus flash in camera applications that require long distance illumination and a narrow radiation pattern. Designed for ultra-slim digital still camera and cell phone designs, it has a footprint that can fit on the head of a pencil eraser.
Avago’s Orange ASMT-FJ30 flash LED is an easy to install miniature surface mount technology (SMT) dome LED lamp, which incorporates an untinted, non-diffused lens that provides light output within a narrow 18-degree radiation pattern to assist the autofocus function in digital still cameras in low-light or dark environments.
Moreover, it also provides greater functionality per square inch of printed circuit board (PCB) space while achieving superior performance in terms of brightness and power consumption. As a result, design engineers can pack more functionality, features and performance in less space to make these devices smaller and enhance the end user’s overall experience.
The ASMT-FJ30 package also provides convenience in the assembly process and is available in 1,500 unit tape and reels to facilitate pick and place operations. As a result, design engineers can expect shorter time to market and overall cost savings.
