Everlight has officially become a member of the ISELED Alliance, which is to develop intelligent RGB LED technology for automotive interior and provide innovative solutions for automotive lighting. With the continuous global technology evolution and the transfer of the automotive industry to digitalization, vehicle interior lighting has grown substantially to improve the user experience. In order to comply with the ongoing trend smart innovation research and development, Everlight employs ISELED to release EL SMARTLED (XI3040-RGBIC0251L-AM) with an embedded IC.
EL SMARTLED developed by Everlight integrates the driver IC into RGB LED package, which can control chromatic aberration within SDCM (MacAdam Ellipse). The integrated driver IC allows control of thermal runaway by temperature sensing of the red LED. The EL SMARTLED has the capability to gang up to 4,000 LEDs in series via LIN interface with a transmission speed of 2Mbps. Compared to a traditional solution for RGB LED, EL SMARTLED provides better color uniformity. In addition, EL SMARTLED has been developed for AEC-Q102. A wide application range for lighting the automotive interior includes interior light, roof reading lighting and dashboard display. The dimension of this SMD package is 3.0mm x 4.1mm to implement the best optical performance.
Everlight has been delivering professional development expertise of over 36 years by combining its R&D, business and marketing teams to continuously seek the innovation and breakthrough on package technology and quality control.
