Osram Expands Automotive Range with Oslon Black Flat S Series

osram debuted the oslon black flat s series, which the company says is the world’s first surface mountable leds comprising up to five individually controllable chips. the package also comes with a contrast ratio that makes them suitable for use in adb (adaptive driving beam) headlights. as the individual light segments can be switched on and off, it is possible to mask out oncoming traffic and traffic further ahead on the road thus making driving safer and more comfortable.


the high-power leds also have improved thermal properties which make them suitable for use as a viable entry-level adb solution even for vehicles in the compact category. the 3-chip version in the oslon black flat s series has been available in the market from october 2016, and the variants with four and five chips will be available from january 2017.


the powerful chips used in the osram black flat s series use state-of-the-art technologies. it is the first time that the light-emitting surface does not need a recess for contact with the bond wire, thus making it easier to adapt the optics as it emits highly uniform light across its square format. the chips can be controlled individually and offer very high contrast between neighboring chips which is 100% verifiable. drivers benefit from the optimum distribution of light on the road at all times.


speaking about the innovative technology, thomas christl, product manager at osram opto semiconductors said that the oslon black flat s series makes it possible for users of even entry-level and compact models to enjoy the benefits of adaptive matrix lightso that they are safer and more comfortable on the roads.


oslon black flat s makes it possible for motorists to enjoy a glare-free high beam as well as  other adaptive led front lighting functions like cornering light and city light even without using any additional mechanical elements. in the entry level segment, the only adb solutions that was available was the osram ostar headlamp pro which had individually controllable chips. the oslon black flat s series will now be a welcome addition.


other distinctive benefits offered by the chips are that they are surface mountable and are compatible with standard processes. in contrast to the oslon black flat, the oslon black flat s leds have an optimized and symmetrical contact surface design which further optimize heat removal and cycle stability. this further reduces system costs as it provides excellent thermal management and standard processing.
