Avago Technologies Announces ASMT-FJ30 Autofocus LED

Avago Technologies has introduced to the market a new miniature autofocus light emitting diode (LED) for use in ultra-slim digital still camera and cell phone designs. With a footprint that can fit on the head of a pencil eraser, Avago claims its ASMT-FJ30 is the thinnest autofocus LED in the industry and 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, the company said.

Avago adds that the 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.
