Osram creates new LED Systems division
Osram's new LED Systems division will offer integrated LED products and hopes to bridge the gap between components and complete LED lighting systems.
The new LS organization is intended to bridge the gap between individual systems components -- such as LEDs, heat-sinks and primary optics -- and complete LED lighting systems, and to accelerate the adoption of LED technologies for lighting.

The LS product portfolio will include standardized as well as custom LED system solutions for Osram's OEM partners. Examples of recently-introduced standard products include the Coinlight Ostar, which combines a 6-chip Ostar package with an integrated 38° secondary optic and an integrated thermal management system. The product is dimmable and produces 420 lumens.
Other examples include the LinearLight Dragon system, which contains 6 Dragon ThinGaN LEDs on a linear board and is available with heat sink and optics accessories, or even mounted inside a linear fixture – effectively this is a luminaire.

However, some OEMs have the expertise and will to integrate components by themselves. In this case, of course Osram would still like to supply LEDs and other components, and this is where Osram's new "LED Light for you" online platform comes in.
The LS organization has five global functions -- manufacturing and operations, marketing and sales, research and development, applications engineering and management – and consists of three business development regional organizations located in Europe, NAFTA and Asia.
Osram says that its new organization will not only integrate and manufacture LED systems products utilizing current component technologies but will also focus on the research and development of new and innovative LED systems technologies.
