The ISELED Alliance welcomed three new members to intensify the ISELED technology for automotive applications. German companies Marquardt and Preh and Finnish company TactoTek joined the open, industrial alliance developing a comprehensive system solution for innovative automotive lighting based on the ISELED technology.
Various solutions focussing on the automotive market are continually being developed by ISELED Alliance members. The product range includes smart LED modules, standalone drivers and controllers, dedicated microcontrollers, and development kits. Systems combining ISELED components with optics are under development.
The Alliance recently finalised specifications of the 2nd-generation ISELED. The new products will feature higher colour point accuracy over the complete temperature range and higher current classes. A further milestone is the expansion of the original local ISELED protocol to a true field bus across the automobile. This was done by the development of the ILaS bus concept (ISELED Light and Sensor network). With ILaS not only LEDs—RGB or infrared, for example—but also other components such as matrix LED lights, sensors, and actuators can be controlled in large numbers via a simple unshielded two-wire cable. A first test chip of ILaS is available now, fulfilling all objectives set including the targeted high EMC robustness.
On 3 September the 3rd ISELED Conference in the format of a combined on-site and livestream virtual workshop will take place. Alliance members will present these developments and more in detail together with latest products and systems solutions.
