Osram Opto Introduces Next Gen High-Quality LEDs for the Automotive Sector

Posted Sep 14, 2020 by OSRAM

In its latest bid to further optimize high-quality LED solutions for the automotive sector, Osram Opto Semiconductors has introduced a new generation of 1 to 4-chip versions in the Oslon Compact PL product family. Like their predecessors, the ceramic components have an electrically insulated pad that makes it much easier to dissipate heat from the package. As a result, a higher current is possible, which allows the 1-chip version to achieve an outstanding brightness value of 395 lumens at 1A with a chip area of 1mm². Thanks to the very small dimensions of 1.9mm x 1.5mm x 0.73mm, the product is ideal for ADB (Adaptive Driving Beam) systems and in extremely space-saving system designs.

In addition, the Oslon Black Flat S family expands to include a 1 and a 2-chip version. The special lead-frame-based components feature highest contrast values (>1:200) and very low thermal resistance – which allows for higher currents. The 1-chip variant reaches 395lm at 1A. The square lighting surface of the UX:3 chip makes optical design particularly easy for headlight manufacturers. The different technology concepts of the Oslon Black Flat S and Oslon Compact PL enable customers to choose the best possible combination of LED and PCB for their systems. Due to the product family's outstanding efficiency values of up to 130lm/W at 1A, headlights with smaller or even without heatsinks are conceivable in the future – leading to a potential reduction in system costs.

The package dimensions remain the same in the new product generations of the Oslon Compact PL and Oslon Black Flat S which allows headlamp manufacturers to easily exchange the products.
