Osram launched two white LED series products for automotive ambient lighting

- Dec 28, 2020-

The interior is increasingly becoming the focus of the latest generation of cars and is undergoing a fundamental image change, which will have a corresponding impact on design and integrated applications.

Recently, Osram launched the Ostune LED series for automotive environmental lighting, including Ostune E1608 and E3030. Among them, Ostune E3030 is the larger of the two newly launched white LEDs in the Ostune vehicle environmental lighting series.

Ostune E1608 and E3030 products cover a wide range of color temperatures, enabling OEMs to provide unique ambient lighting variations: from elegant cool blue and white light to comfortable warm red and white light. The color rendering index (CRI) of this series of LEDs exceeds 90, which is at a high level in the current automotive applications.

Over the years, LED applications have been successful in the automotive field. From high-performance LEDs for headlights, to infrared series for driver monitoring, and RGB solutions for interior lighting, LEDs are increasingly penetrating the automotive market. However, in the field of environmental lighting, halogen lamps are still commonly used-this not only requires significantly more energy, but also takes up a lot of installation space.

Ostune E1608 and E3030 expand Osram's broad product portfolio in the automotive interior lighting field by providing a wide color temperature range from 2700K to 6500K.

In addition, they provide customers with energy-saving and space-saving alternatives that go beyond traditional technologies in many application areas: from comfortable interior lighting and reading lights to mirrors and footrest lighting.

Thanks to the wide range of colors and the ability to choose from many subdivided gears, customers can easily and very accurately define the desired white tone and make it one of the inherent design elements in different vehicles.

In addition to the particularly compact dimensions of 1.6mm x 0.8mm x 0.6mm (E1608) and 3.0mm x 3.0mm x 0.65mm (E3030), this series of products can also provide excellent color rendering in vehicle interiors. Ostune E1608 has a lower brightness range (≤7 lumens), and E3030 has a higher brightness range (≤70 lumens).

Osram Opto Semiconductors said that the interior of the car is undergoing a huge image change, that is, from the cockpit to a mobile living space. Therefore, environmental lighting and other aspects are becoming increasingly important. With the advent of each new generation of cars, environmental lighting has gradually received attention.
