Headlamp LED

  • 18-Apr-2011 09:15 EDT


Osram Opto Semiconductors’ OSTAR headlamp LED uses the auto industry’s first ThinGaN light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with phosphor layer transfer, according to the company. The OSTAR headlamp was developed with an integrated shutter function to control the output of the light, eliminating the need for mechanical shutters and projecting a clearly defined legal beam pattern onto the road without the loss of light commonly associated with mechanical shutters. With its scalable brightness, the OSTAR headlamp is suited to all headlamp functions. The Osram OSTAR LED platform of products provides more styling freedom, reduces energy use, is more reliable, and generates more light than conventional headlamps, claims the company.
