BROSintl® NEW - OLED Lighting

OLED  Lighting


Organic is a term often used to describe natural foods that are considered healthier for human and animal consumption. Not exactly the word you would think of to describe a form of lighting. However, organic LEDs (OLEDs) are a fairly new type of light source that is beginning to gather quite the shine in the lighting industry. Growing in popularity as a more flexible source of light, how do OLEDs compare to LEDs, and is one form of light more superior than the other?

How OLEDs Work?

Similar to light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, organic LEDs create light with the use of two electrodes and a semi-conductor. The major difference comes from the use of organic materials in OLEDs. In traditional LEDs blue LEDs are coated with yellow phosphor to create light; however, OLEDs utilize thin layers of organic compounds to emit light through electric currents.

What're the Advantages?

OLEDs are comprised of mainly organic materials, making them an environmentally friendly light source that can easily be recycled. Because of their flat surface lighting construction, OLEDs are used for digital displays, or for illumination mounted to glass, plastic and metal. Their thin, flat flexible design is visually appealing, making the lights great for accent lighting in homes or offices. Organic LEDs are considered a more “human-friendly” light source in part because they are free of ultra violet rays, unlike LEDs that still produce a very limited amount of UV radiation.

Perhaps one of the biggest reasons the desire for OLED lighting panels has increased is their flexibility. OLED panels are paper thin and pliable, giving them the unique capability to transform into almost any shape. For instance, OLEDs could be placed across an entire wall or used for whimsical lighting displays. OLEDs can also be any color; soft white light transmitted from OLEDs is comparable to sunlight, giving them a CRI of 90 or greater, a significant difference since most LED lights do not exceed 90 CRI.  Another major difference in OLEDs is that they generate very little heat, less than LEDs, making the need for heat sinks and diffusers obsolete.

What's Warning Canceller (Capacitor) And Why Some Cars Need It?

What's Warning Canceller (Capacitor) And Why Some Cars Need It?

This is also referred to as HID Anti flicker capacitor. It is commonly found in high profile automobiles such as Mercedes, Audi, and BMW among others. It’s a very significant component in American and European cars installed with High Intensity discharge lights. They can however function well for vehicles with low voltage provided that their compatibility is favorable. Experts warn that it is imperious to confirm your vehicles compatibility from the manufacturer before considering installing a warning canceller. To avert damages it is recommended that you consult an experienced professional for help.


Why do some cars need it?

1. Solving Flickering Issue

Capacitors are used to sort out flickering issues that are very common with LED kits. Light flickering issues arise as a result of LED bulb replacement. On many occasions the cars computer rejects the changed bulb especially when it happens to be a replica and not the original. Subsequently the computer repetitively keeps sending a special pulse to the lights as a way of trying to resolve the lighting failure. A continuous pulse results in what appears like flashing or flickering of lights. It can be so dangerous driving with flickering lights as it can lead to horrendous accidents on the road especially during the night. To resolve the flickering or the abnormal light flashing such cars require anti-flicker devices to be installed with expertise.

  • 2. Eliminate Bulb Failure Issues

In many modern cars drivers have the unique privilege of knowing whether all their LED headlights are fully functional or not. This is as a result of the availability of a light indicator on the dashboard which sounds the warning when one fails or the bulb burns out. Sometimes the bulbs are not burnt despite the bulb out indicator. Computer errors can result in superfluous expenses .In such a case a warning canceller is highly recommended to resolve the issue. It works perfectly well in expunging the warning light and relieves the usual stress that comes with malfunctioned car parts. A good quality capacitor will solve all bulb failure issues encountered as a result of wrong warning signals from your car’s computer system.

 

Conclusion

A warning canceller or capacitor is highly recommended for convenience purpose. It works perfectly well with cars whose year of manufacture ranges between 2006 upwards. They are also incredible for vehicles with daylight running lights.

the Meaning of Color Temperature for Automotive Lights

the Meaning of Color Temperature for Automotive Lights


Color temperature refers to the condition of the output of light in automotive.It can either be described in terms of coolness or warmth.It is measured in Kelvins. The modern LED lights are designed to accommodate an output ranging between a 100 to 10000K. On the other side HID lights range from 6000 to 10000 Kelvins. This does not necessarily mean that brighter light outputs equates to higher color temperatures. On the contrary the higher the color the more distraction it becomes. It’s all dependent on respective technology used. Light developers are very creative with limiting color temperatures to conform to normal human eye needs. LEDs color temperatures can be set accordingly to add exclusive value to consumers unlike is the case with halogen and xenon lights.



Light performance


4000K

The light produces amber color and mostly this kind of warm color is used for turning signal light.

6000K

This range of color temperature is very common with many users. Headlights within 6000 to 6300K appear whiter than those that exceed the level. They are more usable and convenient for road users since they do not have yellowish or extreme blue that can detract other drivers on the road.

6500K

At this temperature the yellowish color will diminish to produce an excellent or crystal whitish color. It’s recommendable especially for experienced drivers since it falls within the right light brackets.

7000K

At 7000K a blue tint starts appearing in place of the white light. It may appear very bluish depending on the quality of the bulbs. You can still manage to see things well at this temperature.

What are the types of LED chip packages in the automotive market?

What are the types of LED chip packages in the automotive market?

Choosing an LED technology is like choosing the right winter coat to wear: there are different models that provide more or less features depending on what you might need. Once you decide the features you want from your LED, you can easily choose the package type accordingly.

The basic types of chip LEDs are:

 1. SMD (Surface mounted diode):

SMD (Surface mounted diode) is a standalone chip on a ceramic base that can be integrated into various packages for linear LED strips or downlights. SMD technology also supports chips with more complicated designs, such as SMD 5050 chips, that have RGB capabilities on a single chip. This is very powerful for color combinations. The technology takes the shaped design to be closer to that of a flat, square computer chip. It is also worth noting that SMD chips can have more than just two contacts (one anode and one cathode). SMD chips can have 2, 4 or 6 contacts, depending on the number of diodes on the chip. With the SMD design, there is an individual circuit for each diode. For example, SMD 5050 chips have 3 diodes on the chip, which translates to 3 circuits and a total of 6 contacts.
SMD chips have been a very important development for the LED industry because of the ability to put 3 diodes on the same chip. When a chip includes a red, green, and blue diode, you have a chip that can create any color you want by adjusting the level of output from each individual diode on the chip. Because they are very bright and can change colors, these chips are used extensively for LED strip lights and light bulbs.

 2. COB (chip on board):

COB (chip on board) LED, which comes as a high powered chip in direct contact with a printed circuit board optimal thermal management. COB and SMD can be similar because like SMD, COB chips have multiple diodes on the same “wafer” or chip. However, this is where the similarities end. In fact, on every COB chip there are multiple diodes; typically 9 or more. The other big difference between COB and SMD technology lies in the fact that while SMD requires a circuit for every diode included on the chip, COB devices only have 1 circuit and 2 contacts for the entire chip regardless of the number of diodes. This single circuit design, regardless of the number of diodes on the chip, leads to simplicity for the rest of any COB LED device.
Perhaps even more important than the simplicity aspect, COB also leads to improved lumen-per-watt ratios in comparison to other LED technologies such as DIP and SMD. Unfortunately, the big draw back from the single circuit design of COB chips stems from the fact that multiple channels are necessary to adjust individual levels of light output to create color changing effects. What this basically means is that COB technology, while very powerful and efficient in single-color applications, cannot be used to create color changing bulbs or lights.
Before COB technology, LED spot lights and flood lights were historically considered “non-standard lamps” because they required multiple LED sources to produce a high lumen output. Since the advent of COB chips in the LED arena, a large lumen count can be produced from a single source using a COB chip. This was never possible before COB, but has been a revolution for people who want to lower their energy bill but also need a standard lamp. Besides spot lights and floodlights, COB chips have been put into all kinds of bulbs and used for a number of other applications as well.

3. ETI FC (Flip-Chip):

ETI FC(Flip-Chip) LED is a new patented technology by mounting the LED diode upside down compare to the present day COB LED production. In FC LED, patented Flip Chip process instead of traditional COB wire bonding is applied. Flip-chip not only shortens the production process (which means cost reduction), but also significantly reduce thermal resistance and result in higher heat dissipation rate than in the traditional golden wire bonding COB LED. Meanwhile, FC LED’s smaller and square design makes its light beam more focused.

Benefit of Flip-Chip LED:

– 200 times faster thermal dissipation rate on each diode compare to ordinary COB LED
– No need heavy weight thermal HEAT SINK (due to better heat dissipation rate)
– Longer life: Almost no decade (estimated about 3% in 6000 hours)
– Higher module reflective brightness.
– No Shadow of light, no lead frame for certain light angles limitation ( wider light angle of about 120 degree)
– Producing better lighting specification than other same 450mA current LED products
