Two-chip LED

  • 01-Oct-2013 03:03 EDT

Osram Opto Semiconductor’s two-chip version of the Oslon Black Flat LED features a high level of brightness emitted from a compact package that is suitable for all automotive headlight functions. According to the company, the primary advantage of the new compact LED is that, as a surface mount technology component, it can be attached directly to the printed circuit board and then processed with other components as part of a standard soldering process. The simplicity of this implementation translates into cost and time savings during further processing, claims the company. Thanks to UX:3 chip technology, the device provides a very high light output even with high currents, achieving more than 500 lumens at one ampere.
