New LEDs for autos save energy

Philips Lumileds announces the broad release of its white automotive-rated LUXEON Rebel LEDs. Intended for use in automotive applications such as daytime running lamps, position lamps, backup lamps, and interior lighting, these parts offer design flexibility and are engineered and tested to exceed automotive requirements for reliability, performance, and lifetime. Each part conforms to both SAE and ECE color specifications and has complete PPAP documentation.

According to company sources, the LEDs’ low power consumption will contribute to saving millions of gallons of fuel, while the rugged package is designed to function for the life of the vehicle and eliminates the need to change bulbs. For automotive lighting engineers, benefits include simplified secondary optic design and integration, reduced thermal management engineering, and easier assembly and integration for reduced manufacturing costs.
