Oslon Black Flat S for Automotive Provides up to 2000 Lumen

The five chips of the Oslon Black Flat S can be driven individually and are ideal for adaptive front lighting systems Osram Opto Semiconductors is unveiling an LED prototype in surface mount technology (SMT) with a brightness of up to 2000 lumen (lm) at ISAL 2015 – the Oslon Black Flat S. Experts achieved this high output by combining five chips from the latest UX:3 generation with an improved SMT package. A single LED is therefore sufficient as the light source for combined low-beam and high-beam systems. The excellent thermal connection with the package allows for passive cooling, which reduces system costs. The Oslon Black Flat S is consequently a viable alternative to HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamps and is scheduled to be added to the Osram automotive portfolio at the end of 2016. Read more »
