Osram to Develop Automotive LED with 25,600 Pixels in One Chip for Next-gen Vehicles

Several LED manufacturers in the industry have turned their business focus to automotive applications targeting the progressing automotive and electric vehicle development. The German high-tech company Osram, as one of the leading automotive LED producers, announced that it is starting a new chapter in multi-pixel solutions for car headlights.

Osram released the idea of the first hybrid LED "Eviyos" two years ago and is progressing the second generation of Eviyos featuring 25,600 pixels on a single LED chip, with pixel pitch of 40 µm. According to Osram, the pixels on the LED chip can be control individually, enabling the headlamps to not only illuminate the road but also project signals or symbols to other road users for more smart functions.

With individually controlled pixels, only the pixels that are needed are illuminated for a particular situation. This means that only the necessary energy is consumed, which is a crucial point for electric vehicles. In addition, with a footprint of 40 mm², the second generation of Eviyos opens the door to new fields of application beyond classic lighting. Depending on the application, customers will be able to combine several Eviyos with each other or other conventional LEDs.

Osram plans to launch first generation of hybrid LED Eviyos with 1,024 individually controllable pixels at the beginning of 2020. The market launch of the second generation of Eviyos is planned for 2023.
