Osram Announces Latest Tech For Intelligent Car Headlights


For second generation of Eviyos, Osram is developing a 25,600 pixels on a single LED chip

Two years after the announcement of the world's first hybrid LED 'Eviyos' device for car headlights, Osram Opto Semiconductor says it is starting a new chapter in multi-pixel solutions by integrating more than 25,000 individually controllable pixels in its latest Eviyos LED.

The device has a footprint of 40 mm² and the individual light pixels are brought together to a pixel pitch of 40 µm, creating a particularly space-saving component.

"With more than 25,000 individually controllable pixels, the second generation of Eviyos will bring HD-quality projections onto the road. In the future, vehicles will be able to visually display warnings or symbols to vehicle occupants or other road users," explains Wolfgang Lex, VP and general manager Automotive at Osram Opto Semiconductors. "Car owners can also be greeted by a variety of welcome scenarios when approaching their vehicle thanks to this product." In addition to the outstanding high resolution, the second generation of Eviyos will offer decisive advantages over comparable solutions, especially in terms of energy efficiency and space.

An essential feature of the Eviyos family is that only the pixels that are needed are illuminated for a particular situation. This means that only the necessary energy is consumed - a crucial point, especially for electric vehicles.

The second generation of Eviyos is currently still under development - but it already shows how automotive lighting will change in the coming years. They can fade out areas with unprecedented precision, while other areas shine in full light. This technology also opens the door to new fields of application beyond classic lighting. Depending on the application, customers will be able to combine several Eviyos with each other or other conventional LEDs.

At the beginning of 2020, the first generation of the world's first hybrid LED Eviyos, featuring 1,024 individually controllable pixels will be launched to the market. The market launch of the second generation of Eviyos is planned for 2023.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
