Oslon Black Flat LED


The new Oslon Black Flat LED from Osram Opto Semiconductors is a high-performance light source for automotive front lighting systems that offers high light output at high currents, uniform light distribution, thermal stability and good contrast for seeing and being seen. Equipped with chip and packaging technology and a ceramic converter (part of Osram's new C2 Ceramic Conversion Technology), this new LED is the latest addition to Osram's Oslon Black series of compact, robust LEDs for automotive and industrial applications.

Thermal management is much simpler with this new LED due to the greater thermal stability of the luminous flux, even under "hot" application conditions, and also to a new temperature-optimized packaging process. This means that the typical thermal resistance has been reduced to a very low 4 kW. The thermal coefficient of expansion of the LED's black QFN (Quad Flat No Leads) package is ideally matched to the coefficient of expansion of the metal core board.  All these properties make the Oslon Black Flat fully AECQ101 automotive qualified, particularly stable and extremely durable (more than 100,000 hours at 700 mA and a chip temperature of 60°C).
