Philips Lumileds Extends LED Portfolio for Automotive Signaling

Philips Lumileds announced release and immediate availability of its new SignalSure mid-power LEDs for automotive signaling applications. The new surface mount LED is intended to be the most robust and reliable surface mount LED available to the automotive industry today and undergoes a rigorous Multi Environment Overstress Testing (MEOST) regime that exceeds the testing required by today’s standards for automotive signaling LED sources. SignalSure is available in red-orange and amber colors per automotive specifications.
“Reliability and confidence in a surface mount signaling product has been our design objective for SignalSure from the start” The MEOST testing for SignalSure goes well beyond datasheet maximums to ensure ongoing reliability and performance. As part of the MEOST testing regime, developed in conjunction with the company’s tier 1 customers, SignalSure LEDs are exposed to extreme heat, humidity, and high levels of sulphur gas. Philips Lumileds simulates high-voltage jump start and high voltage alternator failure to ensure that the SignalSure LEDs will continue to operate without degradation in performance, quality, and light output. The MEOST test regime is outlined in the SignalSure Reliability Datasheet that is available from Philips Lumileds website. SignalSure LEDs are AEC-Q101 Qualified and meet Japanese and SAE/ECE requirements.
“Reliability and confidence in a surface mount signaling product has been our design objective for SignalSure from the start,” said Paul Martin, Senior Director for Philips Lumileds’ mid-power automotive LEDs. “There are certainly other surface mount LEDs in use today, but it was clear that the automotive industry’s needs were not being met. Only SignalSure achieves the automotive industry’s desired level of reliability for a surface mount product. No other automotive SMD product we know of goes through the extreme testing applied to our LEDs and as a result, we are delivering a superior SMD with a wide design margin for signaling applications.”
SignalSure surface mount LEDs expand the portfolio offering that includes Philips Lumileds’ SnapLED and SuperFlux LEDs. SnapLED has become the auto industry’s standard for performance, flexibility, and reliability and its unique clinch frame assembly has made it the choice for signature styling on vehicles around the world. Philips Lumileds expects SignalSure to become the surface mount product of choice for a variety of applications where thin, low profile designs are preferred, including: center stop, side-marker, tail, mirror turn, rear fog, and motorcycle signaling.
