Power range and 10,000-hour lifetime reliability leads industry
HAYWARD, California, Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — RayVio Corp., an advanced health and hygiene company, is volume shipping its new, 280nm XD mid-power and XR high-power UV-C LEDs and established industry-leading, 10,000 hour benchmarks for lifetime reliability – critical to the success of consumer and medical-grade solutions. Both the XD and XR Series are available as standard 3535 emitters or mounted on star boards for easy test development and product integration. Both devices are in-stock at Digi-Key.
The XD and XR series are available from Digi-Key as emitters or on star board. Both have a nominal drive current of 100mA and can be over or under driven to optimize for power or lifetime. XD Series: Typical Output 3-5 mW. XR Series: Typical Output 6-18+ mW.
“We are excited to have RayVio as our exclusive provider of UV-C LEDs and recognize their continuing leadership in the industry for both lifetime and performance,” said Nick Olson, Manager, Semiconductor Product Group at Digi-Key Electronics. “We are already stocking both the XD and XR Series and are well equipped to help our customers from a technical stand point as the demand for UV-C continues to grow!”
For the first time in the industry, RayVio is introducing documented lifetime ratings at multiple currents for both the XD and XR devices. This allows designers to engineer solutions for optimum performance, lifetime, and reliability characteristics for their particular application.
“These are the most cost-effective UV-C LEDs available and that means more opportunity to develop new solutions,” said Dr. Robert C. Walker, CEO. “For applications where cost is the primary driver, the XD mid-power Series is optimum and when milliwatt-power is the priority, our XR Series with up to twelve milliwatts of power is superior and yet very cost effective on a $/mW basis.”
Regardless of drive current, RayVio’s UV-C LEDs have demonstrated Sterility Assurance Levels of 10-6 or 99.9999% and can be applied to applications from surface and water disinfection to medical-grade sterilization.
The XD and XR Series are in volume production and globally available from Digi-Key.
