OSRAM Matrix Light – an LED module for intelligent headlights

OSRAM Matrix Light is a module for so-called matrix headlights. It fulfills the complete range of functions for adaptive high beam light. Each individual LED in the module can be separately controlled and therefore be separately switched on and off or dimmed. In combination with a camera system and image-processing electronics, oncoming traffic and traffic ahead are recognized and fielded from glare. Because of the high quantity of pixels it is also possible that objects identified by the camera system (e.g. pedestrians, animals or obstacles) can be separately illuminated to draw the attention of drivers to these.

Product features                         

  • Matrix with up to 100 pixel (LEDs) possible 
  • 130 lm per LED
  • Each pixel individually dimmable  in 256 steps
  • Ambient temperature up to 90°C
  • CAN or LIN interface

Technical challenges

  • 35W optical performance at 90 °C ambient temperature
  • Highest level of integration in the module
  • Efficient and highly dynamic DC/DC converters
  • Complex switching logic for LED array
  • High-resolution multi-channel PWM generator
  • Module with integrated blower and head pipe (internal heat dissipation for cooling the LEDs)
