Power project working on LED replacements for UV light sources

Power project working on LED replacements for UV light sources
A total of five research institutes and companies have been working on 'UV Power' since February 2017. This is a collaborative project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The partners have made it their goal to provide high-power UV LEDs to cover a wide variety of applications. These LEDs will eventually replace conventional UV light sources, which often contain toxic mercury, in areas such as production, disinfection, the environment, life sciences and medicine. UV LEDs are also likely to open up new areas of application.

Iris scanning to be used in smartphones

Iris scanning to be used in smartphones
Osram IR technology is making smartphones even smarter by enabling mobile devices, for the first time, to be unlocked by scanning the iris of the user. Fujitsu Limited is using iris scanning in its ARROWS NX F-04G smartphone, which is being marketed by the Japanese telecomms company NTT DOCOMO. This smartphone, which is currently available only in Japan, is the first in the world with this extremely secure functionality for consumers, using IREDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors as the light source.

Green LED development takes step forward

Green LED development takes step forward
Pioneering work is being undertaken to develop green LEDs, in particular diminishing what is known as the “green gap” phenomenon – the significant drop in efficacy in the green spectral range. The “Hi-Q-LED” project funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has been leading the way.

Surface-mounted LED doubles pixel density

Surface-mounted LED doubles pixel density
The surface mountable Displix Oval is an LED developed by Osram Opto Semiconductors with oval light-radiating characteristicsfor large-screen video walls, petrol station price signs and digital road signs. Thanks to a compact housing measuring just 2.1 x 2.7 x 1.5 mm (including lens), almost twice as many LEDs can now be mounted on a board than with ordinary radial diodes, doubling both the pixel density and the resolution of displays.

Osram Ostar Projection Cube LED: a giant leap forward in performance for smartphones and cameras

Osram Ostar Projection Cube LED: a giant leap forward in performance for smartphones and cameras
An integrated miniature projector that can display images on a much larger surface than existing displays is the next giant leap for smart phones and cameras. This is known as embedded projection and uses LEDs as the light source. The greatest challenge so far for lighting technology has been the limited efficiency of the green light emitting diodes. This is because high brightness is essential if the projected image will be seen with ambient light. The Osram Ostar Projection Cube from Osram Opto Semiconductors is the perfect solution.

New 3:1 hybrid sensor from OSRAM combines IR LED emitter with proximity and ambient light sensors in one compact unit

New 3:1 hybrid sensor from OSRAM combines IR LED emitter with proximity and ambient light sensors in one compact unit
The new “3 in 1” SFH 7773 digital sensor from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors makes it easier than ever to install both proximity and ambient light sensing in smart phones and similar devices by combining the functions of a digital ambient light sensor and a digital proximity sensor in a single compact unit. It also simplifies the elimination of crosstalk by combining the emitter and detector chips together – 3 devices in all – eliminating the design requirements that are usually necessary to suppress crosstalk. Now, designers no longer have to install a separate IR emitter to enable the proximity sensor function.

Super low-profile optical touch screens thanks to powerful miniature LEDs

Super low-profile and incredibly powerful – these are the demands that touch screens place on infrared components. And that’s no problem for the new CHIPLED SFH 4053: Its tiny dimensions make it one of the smallest on the market. Combined with its high performance the CHIPLED is ideal for low-profile all-in-one computers and laptop displays. And the IRED is so small that it can be easily integrated in smartphones.

From the OSRAM laboratory: efficiency record for warm white

From the OSRAM laboratory: efficiency record for warm white
OSRAM Opto Semiconductors has set a new laboratory record of 142 lm/W for the efficiency of a warm white LED light source. With a correlated color temperature (CCT) of 2755 K the LED achieves a good color rendering index (CRI) of 81. Measurements were taken under standard conditions: room temperature and pulsed mode at an operating current density of 350 mA/mm².

Capacity expansion at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors

Capacity expansion at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors
OSRAM Opto Semiconductors will be significantly stepping up its production output by converting its two chip manufacturing facilities to 6-inch wafers while expanding production at both plants. A new production building is currently under construction in Penang, Malaysia, while in Regensburg, Germany, the existing space is being reallocated. The two facilities will each be converting to the new manufacturing technology, introducing 6-inch wafers to replace the current 4-inch wafers. These measures are expected to almost double the chip production capacity for white LEDs by the end of 2012.

OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ LED complement the Tchibo concept of sustainable coffee bars

OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ LED complement the Tchibo concept of sustainable coffee bars
‘insgrüne’ [‘into nature’] – this is the name of Tchibo's new coffee-bar concept for universities. For the interior, designer Simon Brünner of ‘neuesLicht’ contributed matching pendulum luminaires. His ‘Dropled 100’, using OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ OSLON SSL 80 LEDs, produces a light that is not only atmospherically pleasant but also ‘green’: thanks to the outstanding energy efficiency of the light diodes, lighting is particularly economical and thus ecologically friendly.
