Samsung has recently rolled out “Fx-CSP,” a line-up of LED packages featuring chip-sale packaging and flexible circuit board technology designed for use in automotive lighting applications.
In a statement, Jacob Tarn, executive vice president, LED Business Team, Samsung Electronics, said that their new Fx-CSP line-up will bring greater design flexibility and cost competitiveness to the automotive lighting industry. He noted that they would continue to unveil advanced LED products and technologies such as multi-chip array technologies that could play a key role in the growth of the automotive LED lighting industry.
The new Fx-CSP offers an innovative combination of chip-scale packaging and flexible circuit board technology, which enable a higher degree of reliability and more compact chip sizing. The use of a flexible circuit board also allow more heat to dissipate, resulting in lower resistance and a greater degree of lumen-per-watt efficiency than utilizing a ceramic board.
Moreover, the new Samsung automotive LED line-up enables car designers to utilize various chip arrangements such as a single chip, a 1 by 4, or a 2 by 6 multi-chip arrangement to suit various lighting configurations. The great thing about the Fx-CSP line-up is that it can be widely utilized in automotive lighting applications including daytime running lamps, position lamps, and headlamps that need higher luminous flux and reliability than other automotive lamps.
The Fx-CSP line-up comprises single packages, Fx1M and Fx1L, with 1-3 watts each, as well as packages with a 14W high voltage array, Fx4 and a 40W high voltage array, Fx2x6. The variation in wattage levels enables Samsung LED lighting packages to work well with wide-ranging exterior automotive lighting.
The addition of the Fx-CSP line-up to its existing mid-power and high-power automotive LED component line-ups now enables Samsung to offer a highly competitive family of automotive lighting components. The new line-up was recently chosen for a compact car headlamp project from one of the key global automotive manufacturers.
Later this year, Samsung mulls the introduction of more CSP technology-based LED components such as the new Fx-CSP line-up for automotive lighting.
