Premstaetten, Austria (9th December, 2021) -- ams OSRAM (SIX: AMS), a global leader in optical solutions, unveils the brightest LED currently available on the market for automotive front lighting. ams OSRAM is the market leader for automotive LEDs and is now sending another strong signal to the industry with the Oslon Black Flat X family. The leadframe-based components offer market-leading brightness specially developed for use in low beam and high beam solutions in cars.

The Oslon Black Flat X is currently the brightest LED available on the market for standard low and high beam solutions for automotive front lighting. The picture shows the 2-chip version of the com-ponent.

Automotive lighting has become extremely versatile thanks to new technological advances. In particular, further developments in LED technology have opened up new possibilities. LEDs require minimum installation space while impressing with outstanding brightness values, giving manufacturers enormous freedom in designing their lighting solutions. "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 particularly easily in manufacturers' standardized production processes. In addition to the market-leading brightness of typ. 460 lm at 1 A, the 1-chip variant is characterized by its compact dimensions of 3.75 mm X 3.75 mm. The special QFN platform of the LEDs enables customers to perform particularly 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 characterized by a very homogenic color over angle radiation.

The Oslon Black Flat X family will start with a 1- and a 2-chip version. Various multi-chip versions will be added in mid-2022.
