Osram unveils “brightest LED on the market” for automotive front lighting

Date: 10th January, 2022



Osram has unveiled what it claims is the brightest LED currently available on the market for automotive front lighting.

According to the manufacturer, the new Oslon Black Flat X offers “market-leading brightness specially developed for use in low beam and high beam solutions in cars”.


Automotive lighting has become extremely versatile thanks to new technological advances. LEDs require minimum installation space while impressing with outstanding brightness values, giving manufacturers enormous freedom in designing their lighting solutions.

Philipp Puchinger, marketing manager automotive exterior at ams Osrams said: “The Oslon Black Flat product family has been an ideal solution for high-quality and at the same time cost-optimised headlamp designs for many years.


“With the two new products in the Oslon Black Flat X line, ams Osram is once again underlining its innovation leadership in automotive lighting.”


It says the surface-mountable components can be processed “particularly easily” in manufacturers’ standardised production processes.

In addition to the market-leading brightness of typ. 460 lm at 1 A, the 1-chip variant is characterised 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 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 characterised by a very homogenic colour 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, Osram says.
