Nearly all surfaces in a car can be individually illuminated with the III-nitride LED modules. All products are wireless, feature four dimming levels and light up in red, blue, green, orange, pink, turquoise or white
Modulight, an ISO13485 certified laser manufacturer based in Tampere, Finland and San Jose CA, have announced two complementary additions to their OEM laser system platform. Whereas ML6500, released in 2013, introduced the smallest form factor and the widest wavelength spread high-power multimode laser modules in the industry, the new release complements this with the ML6400 single-mode laser systems and ML6600 multi-wavelength laser systems. The smaller sibling ML6400 footprints 2
II-VI Laser Enterprise, a subsidiary of II-VI Incorporated will debut new products from its expanded Seed Laser portfolio at Photonics West 2014. These include a new Fabry Perot (FP) laser diode module with ultra-broad band fiber Bragg grating (FBG) for high peak power pulsed Fiber Lasers and a Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser diode module designed for seeding of sub-nanosecond Fiber and Solid State lasers.
GaN Systems Inc, a developer of gallium nitride power switching semiconductors, is presenting a technical paper at APEC describing the application of SPICE models developed for very high power GaN devices and integrated GaN drive circuits in automotive applications. At present, drive train power requirements of most hybrid vehicles (HVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) are met by using silicon IGBT devices, but it is expected that gallium nitride will take over as the technology of choice for this market in the near future, as GaN power transistors provide greatly enhanced performance in these applications, thanks to lower on-resistance and minimal switching losses compared to silicon-based semiconductors.
DILAS, the diode laser company, reports it will showcase the industry’s largest diode laser product portfolio at the Photonics West 2014 Conference from February 2-6, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA, booth #4737.
The new 6000-lumen LMH2 LED module from Cree offers color-quality greater than 90 CRI at a consistent efficacy of 85 lumens per watt across a wide range of color temperatures (3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K). Cree state that the no-compromise LED solution is a suggested replacement for 100-watt ceramic-metal-halide lamps in high-ceiling applications, using 30 percent less power, lasting three times as long and delivering instant-on, dimmable light.
