Ams Osram unveils brightest LED for car front lights
Oslon Black Flat X offers 460 lumens at 1 A, making it the brightest vehicle front lighting component available on the market
Last month, Ams Osram unveiled what it believes is the brightest LED currently available on the market for automotive front lighting.
The Oslon Black Flat X offers 460 lumens at 1 A and is available in a 1-chip and 2-chip variant. In mid-2022, the family will be expanded to include various multichip variants, enabling headlamp manufacturers to create cost-effective LED headlamp designs
"The Oslon Black Flat product family has been an ideal solution for high-quality and at the same time cost-optimized headlamp designs for many years," said Philipp Puchinger, marketing manager Automotive Exterior at Ams Osram. "With the two new products in the Oslon Black Flat X line, Ams Osram is once again underlining its innovation leadership in automotive lighting."
The surface-mountable components can be processed easily in manufacturers' standardised production processes. In addition to its brightness , the 1-chip variant is characterised by its compact dimensions of 3.75 mm X 3.75 mm. The special QFN platform of the LEDs enables customers to perform simple thermal management. Depending on the system, heat sinks can be significantly reduced in size or even eliminated altogether.
The Oslon Black Flat X family’s leadframe package also achieves a lower thermal resistance (Rth) than the leading ceramic packages in this context to date. Together with a special TiO2 encapsulation, the black package of the LEDs delivers high contrasts of 1:200. In addition, the new components are characterised by a very homogenic colour over angle radiation.
