[Click the image to enlarge it]
VSMY2940 is a high-speed infrared emitting diode. It is a 940 nm emitting diode that uses surface emitter technology with high radiant intensity and high optical power. It has two product packages in the VSMY2940 segment, VSY2940RG, and VSM2940G. Both products are available in clear type untinted plastic package that consists of the lens and can easily be fitted as an SMD.

VSMY2940 IR LED Diodes - Overview
The VSMY2940 IR LED diodes to use Vishay’s SurfLigh surface-emitting technology where the light and power are emitted out the top of the chip and provides five times greater intensity compared with standard emitting diode. The IR LEDs are also available with the inbuilt clear lens.
With a forward voltage of 1.4V, the IR LED will get a forward current of 100mA. The below image is showing an important graph to determine the relationship between the forward voltage and forward current.
The below image shows two possible connection options for interfacing these LEDs in CV (Continuous Voltage) or in CC (Continuous Current) mode.
Applications of VSMY2940 LEDs
- Optical switch
- In Proximity sensors, as an emitter source
- Night Vision cameras
