CSL1501RW Side-Emitting Infrared LED
ROHM CSL1501RW Side-Emitting Infrared LED

ROHM has introduced CSL1501RW, an ultra-compact side-emitting infrared LED that is ideal for head-mounted displays, industrial headsets, and VR/MR/AR (xR, virtual reality) gaming systems. The new ultra-miniature side-firing infrared LED is an expansion of the market-proven PICOLED series of ultra-compact chip LEDs.


Targeting the applications using advanced IoT, VR/MR/AR technology, and 3D space and project data simulation the CSL1501RW delivers a peak wavelength of 860nm an industry-small (1.0x0.55mm, t=0.5mm) side-view design that can emit light parallel to the mounting surface for providing exceptional design flexibility.


With improved luminous efficiency and reduced power consumption of up to 20%, the device serves as a light source for eye tracking in VR/MR/AR applications that require greater performance. ROHM’s thorough quality design ensures high mounting reliability in an ultra-compact size utilizing a new package optimized for the high- intensity LED die.
