LED Edge Lights Illuminate Automotive Apps

The company’s LED-based edge lighting products offer an array of efficient solutions for automotive lighting from backlit dashboard displays to interior and exterior lighting. The components focus the light emitted from white LEDs placed along one or more edges of a custom designed light guide and then extracting this light in a highly efficient and uniform manner. The light extraction technologies used reportedly enable the brightest, most uniform and efficient light with the lowest possible part count. Applications include backlighting of automotive interior displays such as digital instrument clusters, infotainment systems, GPS displays, DVD players, and other daylight-readable displays used in cars and minivans.
