Edge Lights Illuminate Autos Inside And Out

The company’s LED-based edge lights provide automotive lighting from backlit dashboard displays to interior and exterior lighting. Focusing light from white LEDs placed along one or more edges of a custom light guide and then extracting this light in a uniform manner, the components enable the bright, uniform light with high efficiency and low part counts. Applications include backlighting automotive interior displays such as digital instrument clusters, infotainment systems, GPS displays, DVD players, and other daylight-readable displays used in cars and minivans. Custom light guides are also possible. GLOBAL LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES INC., Brecksville, OH. (866) 922-4584.
