TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 2, 2017 — Electronics developer Lite-On Technology Corp. and LED packaging service provider Everlight Electronics Co. Ltd. have extended production to LED automotive headlights, while LED epitaxial wafer and chipmaker Genesis Photonics Inc. has provided flip-chip LED chips for chip-scale packaging for use in automotive headlights.

Among LED automotive lighting product lines, technological barriers are highest for headlights due to high specifications in brightness, heat dissipation and product stability, the sources said. Having supplied LED automotive auxiliary lighting products for U.S.- and Europe-based automakers, Lite-On Technology has obtained certification for LED automotive headlights from Asia-based automakers and will start production in one to two years.

Everlight Electronics began production of LED automotive lighting products at its new factory in central Taiwan in the fourth quarter of 2016, with monthly packaging capacity to be gradually expanded from 200 million LED chips to 800 million units. In addition to supplying LED automotive direction lights and brake lamps to Chinese automakers and LED automotive taillights and daytime running lamps to European automakers, Everlight Electronics has begun to ship LED automotive headlights to Asian LED automotive lighting OEMs.

Genesis Photonics has become a supplier for Taiwan- and China-based makers of LED automotive headlights for after-market sale and may enter China-based OEMs supply chains in the second half of 2017, according to reports.
