Lumileds has introduced an infrared (IR) emitter product family for use in automotive sensing applications, the LUXEON IR for Automotive. It features leading optical and thermal performance, enabling high system efficacies and easy integration.
The LUXEON IR Family for Automotive targets both interior and exterior automotive applications, such as Driver Monitoring Systems, Gesture control and Night Vision. The LUXEON IR Domed Line includes 4 different radiations patterns (50°, 60°, 90° and 150°) with industry compatible footprint for seamless implementation in existing designs. The LUXEON IR Compact Line brings the world’s smallest high power infrared emitter to the automotive market, enabling miniaturization while providing unique freedom for custom optical designs. Both use a ceramic substrate for optimal heat dissipation and the world’s best thermal conductivity in its class.
The LUXEON IR for Automotive family is built according to the highest industry standards and is compliant with AEC - Q102. In addition to the excellent product performance and quality, Lumileds also offers extensive application knowledge to support customers in designing them into their applications. The LUXEON IR Domed Line for Automotive is ideal for use in interior applications like Driver Monitor Systems (DMS) and Occupancy Detection while the LUXEON IR Compact Line for Automotive is very well suited for integration in exterior optical systems, such as head or tail lights for lane-departing systems, IR illumination at night or during bad weather conditions.
