LED due to its small size, long life, low power consumption and fast response, etc., has become a highly anticipated next-generation light source lamp technology; but most of the existing LED light source technology used in the interior of the vehicle dashboard backlighting, or the vehicle’s brake lights, turn lights, down lights and other parts of limited headlights Single LED brightness is not enough, the price is too high and other factors, the world is still in development stage, is expected to be 2 to 3 years before entering the amount of commercial production stage. This business has great potential for the technology, is currently China Taiwan Automotive Research & Testing Center region (ARTC) has developed a number of patented technologies, standards and international standards.
R & D project manager at the ARTC Liaoxue Long said: “The traditional incandescent light bulbs with fluorescent than incandescent, LED addition to prolong life 10 times the power consumption of only 10% in high frequency operation of high speed of response and environmental protection, etc., as planar packaging technology can be used to design high degree of freedom for the whole automotive industry is concerned, LED lights not only for the automotive component supply chain to bring great change, the future of automotive design will have more possibilities. ” China Taiwan region has a lot of companies put into research and development technology, LED lights, such as the billion light (Everlight), USI (USI), TYC (TYC), Tai Po (DEPO), a large billion (TaYih), etc. including LED and component supply industry, including the lamp manufacturer.
Liaoxue Long said China Taiwan region lamp manufacturers due to mold skilled, high quality, fast delivery, in the international market has established a good reputation; but because the future of LED headlights will turn toward the active form of development, the need to match electronic sensing and control technology to design, the ability to not have the relevant manufacturers China Taiwan region will be a challenge. The active steering for the latest type of “appropriate way of headlamp lighting system (AFS)”, now ARTC has successfully developed nearly white LED light vehicle technology, the results also include other proprietary projection / reflective LED lights, adjustable illumination color LED lights, LED headlights for small group applications, LED lighting module, TIR lens LED headlights, and car headlights with LED over-temperature protection devices and other technologies.
Liaoxue Long said that: “LED lights must have a high power, high efficiency and operating temperature -40 ℃ ~ 125 ℃ high reliability, in addition to its optical, electrical parameters must be stable possessed consistency, the light intensity decay can not exceed 20%; which is most difficult to overcome a part of the heat problem. “LED die as long as the high temperatures encountered in the luminous efficiency will decay or damage is generally recommended operating temperature is below 80 ℃, so the lamp applications , how the high-efficiency cooling technology, the LED lights to work, become a key design; ARTC Although the current cooling system with LED headlights preliminary research results, but have not completed the test with the real vehicle combination, which is This year, the center axis of the technical development.
ARTC in 2004 and has been combined with industry, academia and research professionals in all sectors of the establishment of the advanced light system (ALS) research and development alliances, the lamp power control and sensing systems, plastic materials and process technology, and optical design and analysis, human vision R & D projects for research, combined with more lights to R & D resources. ARTC is for product validation standards lights work, look forward to assisting companies with foreign depot standards, to grasp the market opportunities.
