Lighting in the automotive industry is heading towards a transition stage with several technological advancements emerging in the market, enabling enhanced performance, safety, security and aesthetics. Based on the current trend, investments in R&D by major OEMs make it evident that there will be a significant growth in the lighting sector.
In Automotive industry particularly in lighting segment a new era came with the light emitting diodes (LED). Due to their advantages like smaller size, high efficiency, lower energy consumption and thus fuel efficiency, long service life and design freedom, LEDs are becoming a more popular choice to replace traditional lamps.
Their small size and design flexibility let them fit very well in the interior lighting, creating comfortable ambience and good mood, which improves the concentration of the driver. While in the exterior lighting, the laser headlight, LED/OLED matrix are added to the high beam, promoting higher luminance and greater visibility, to enhance safety driving.
Discrete components always provide flexibility in choosing the perfect match based on the circuit requirements. By choosing the best suited semiconductor components in the design, power losses decrease and energy savings can be pushed even further. Hence, the selection of the right components can also boost-up the overall performance.
