This release in:

MALVERN, Pa. — March 31, 2006 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the availability of high-intensity SMD LEDs capable of undergoing lead (Pb)-free reflow soldering that can serve as direct replacements for devices in Vishay's TLM series.

Devices in the new VLM series are intended for use in applications including backlighting in automotive dashboards, car radios, and switches; indicators and backlighting in telecommunications systems, audio and video equipment, and office equipment; and in flat backlighting for LCDs, switches, and symbols.

Compatible with lead-free reflow soldering processes according to JEDEC STD 020b and featuring the same specifications at TLM devices, these exceptionally bright VLM LEDs allow TLM LEDs in the MiniLED (up to 50 mcd), PLCC-2 (up to 240 mcd), and PLCC-4 (up to 1250 mcd) to be replaced simply and quickly to meet lead (Pb)-free soldering requirements.

Vishay VLM series LEDs are luminous-intensity categorized according to the same luminous intensity classification and designation as those of competitors' LEDs for automotive applications. In addition to being RoHS-compliant, these devices are compatible with IR reflow, vapor phase, and wave solder processes according to CECC 00802 and JEDEC–STD-020b.
