Automotive LED prototype focuses on adaptive front lighting solutions

September 23, 2015 // By Paul Buckley
Osram Opto Semiconductors is unveiling at ISAL 2015 (International Symposium on Automotive Lighting) an LED prototype in surface mount technology (SMT) which achieves a brightness of up to 2000 lumen.

The Oslon Black Flat S with five high-current chips shows that high luminous flux values of up to 2000 lumen are possible from a single light emitting diode (LED). At the same time, the SMT component has a footprint of 3.75 mm x 7.9 mm, which is larger than that of the previous 5-chip version.

The high output was achieved by combining five chips from the latest UX:3 generation with an improved SMT package. A single LED is sufficient as the light source for combined low-beam and high-beam systems. The excellent thermal connection with the package allows for passive cooling, which reduces system costs. The Oslon Black Flat S is consequently a viable alternative to HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamps and is scheduled to be added to the Osram automotive portfolio at the end of 2016.

The Oslon Black Flat S with five chips should be available from the end of 2016 for low-beam and high-beam systems and for glare-free high-beam headlights.
