LG Innotek announced the launch of its “Nexlide-HD”, a flexible three-dimensional lighting for cars that emits bright and uniform light from five directions.
LG Innotek attached numerous LED onto a thin substrate to product the automotive lighting module. It is a hexahedron that gently curves like a rubber and mounted on the exterior lamps, such as daytime running lights (DRLs) and tail lights.
The product, “Nexlide-HD,” emits uniform light from five directions except the substrate contact surface. The company applied the LED packages, which spreads light around 180 degrees, and a proprietary optical design technology to the product.

“Nexlide-HD” enables the production of unique lightings with various designs such as straight lines, curved lines, waves, and three-dimensional figures. The module can also be cut into thin pieces and combined into blocks to create floral patterns and more. The flexibility of the module is doubled to be formed it into different shapes with silicon.
This product can be applied to the tail lights as well as DRL on the front of the vehicle. DRL require brightness of 400 candela above so that they can be recognized even in the daytime. LG Innotek has raised the module's maximum brightness by applying a 5-sided stereoscopic lighting technology. In addition, “Nexlide-HD” can be used to produce slim lighting and reduce the thickness of automobile lamps by up to 70%.
