SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 11, 2012 — Osram Opto Semiconductors has developed the Oslon Compact LED for automotive headlight design.
Its small size and high light output enable a single LED type to be used as the default light source for all automotive forward lighting applications. The light points in the headlight can be placed in any arrangement, and customized designs can be developed to give different vehicles a unique appearance. The small size of the LEDs means that they can be grouped close to one another and used for lightguides and adaptive front lighting systems.
The entire LED package is not much larger than the light-emitting surface of the chip. The platform is the proprietary ThinGaN UX:3 chip technology, which involves transfer to a silicon carrier and removal of the original silicon substrate to provide high luminous efficacy, even at high currents. The LED measures 1.5 × 1.9 mm and produces 200 lm from 700 mA. The clear white light from the chips is achieved through the company’s C2 technology, which converts blue light via ceramic conversion.
