Philips Lumileds Is Best Positioned To Lead Future Advances in LEDs for Automotive Lighting Systems, Says Frost & Sullivan
Jan 22, 2011 Based on its recent analysis of the automotive light-emitting diodes (LED) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Philips Lumileds with the 2010 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation of the Year for being a major factor driving the advance of improved lighting technologies for the global auto industry.
Only three companies in the world have the technological capacity to produce automotive-grade LEDs. Of the three, Philips Lumileds has done the most to advance the development of LEDs for motorists and the global auto industry. The company has two main LED product lines for automotive lighting. The LUXEON line is designed for high-power headlamps and daytime running lights. Its SnapLED and SuperFlux lines are red, red-orange, and amber LEDs used for taillights and signaling applications.
“The main differences between Philips Lumileds products and its main competitors are its Thin Film Flip Chip (TFFC) technology, which offers improved thermal handling and Lumiramic Phosphor technology which improves light quality,” says Frost & Sullivan Program Leader Stephen Spivey. “Philips Lumileds has also been a market leader in reducing the cost of LED technology,”
It also offers drivers, support materials, engineering services and program management to help its customers integrate its technology offerings. Further, Philips Lumileds maintains factory standards that meet automotive quality specifications at all of its production facilities. These standards exceed those of LEDs used in other industries. As a result, even its non-automotive LEDs offer superior quality and performance.
