November 15, 2006, San Jose, CA--OSRAM Opto Semiconductors has launched a light emitting diode (LED) automotive headlamp. The OSTAR Headlamp, and the soon to launch OSTAR Headlamp Hot Spot target vehicle forward lighting applications based on both reflector and projector systems, for applications such as high and low beam headlights, fog lights, daytime running lights and Adaptive Front lighting Systems (AFS).

"LEDs provide concentrated light from a small emitting area, and are therefore ideal for use in vehicle headlights," said Ellen Sizemore, director, LED/IR marketing, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. "LEDs will revolutionize automotive forward lighting, and provide designers untold freedom and limitless design possibilities."

The new high-power light sources are equipped with five large ThinGaN chips that generate the high brightness and illuminance required to meet both Halogen and HID performance. Direct access to the LED chips maximizes optical coupling efficiency.

Available without primary optics, OSTAR Headlamp is ideal for use in reflector-based systems. For projector-based systems, OSTAR Headlamp Hotspot will include a primary optic to focus the light. Customer-specific lenses can also be mounted to the OSTAR enabling broad design flexibility.
