April 30, 2012
Date Announced: 30 Apr 2012 Now engineers can select the best LED for their automotive exterior lighting applications right on their smart phoneOsram has built a new web-based smart phone app for designers of exterior automotive lighting called the Automotive Signal LED Selector. Available for the iPhone, Android or Blackberry OS, or any device with a web browser, this new tool provides lighting designers and engineers with a mobile, convenient and easy-to-use tool to select the correct LEDs for their applications.This new tool enables designers and engineers to quickly and easily select LEDs by function, color, regulatory requirements, luminosity and the number of LEDs required. “As demand for LEDs in exterior signal and forward lighting increases, we saw the need for a portable tool that enables simplified calculations for function-specific LED selection,” said Mike Godwin, Director, Visible LEDs, for Osram Opto Semiconductors, Inc. “The Automotive Signal LED Selector is a mobile extension of Osram’s extensive know-how in automotive LED selection offering access to the latest advances in LED technology.”Applications in the tool include CHMSL (Center High Mounted Stop Lamps), Daytime Running Lights , Front Fog/Park/Position/Turn lights, High/Low Beams, Rear Fog/Park/Position/Stop/Turn lights, Reverse, and Side Marker/Turn indicators.“Utilization of this new application tool in communication with an Osram sales and application engineer will enable the most suitable LED selection for emerging LED automotive lighting design concepts,” added Godwin.
