Osram Leds

Osram Opto Semiconductors is constantly working to further optimize high-quality LED solutions for the automotive sector. With significant leaps in performance in the Oslon Black Flat and Oslon Compact product families. The products are designed for use in high and low beam solutions.

Osram Opto Semiconductors is launching 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. Appreciating the compact 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.

Additionally, the Oslon Black Flat S family expands to include a 1 and a 2-chip version. The special lead-frame-based components feature the 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.

Florian Fink, Marketing Manager Automotive Exterior, Osram Opto Semiconductors said: “LEDs such as the Oslon Compact PL and the Oslon Black Flat S will lead to an increasingly high penetration rate in vehicles, including small and mid-sized cars. We always work in close cooperation with our customers to constantly improve our established product families and to push the limits of achievable brightness values even further in future.”
