"The broad spectrum of alliance members greatly expands the potential application spectrum - far beyond the original target application of automotive interior lighting," said Robert Kraus, CEO of Inova Semiconductors and one of the founding fathers of the ISELED Alliance. The new ILaS control bus concept (ISELED Light and Sensor Network) plays an important role in this. It was developed on the basis of the ISELED protocol. In the future, not only LED elements, but also other components such as matrix LED lights, sensors and actuators can be controlled in large numbers via a simple two-wire line, which is not possible in this form with today's common buses such as LIN and CAN.
Recently, six new members have joined the alliance. With the automotive supplier Dräxlmaier Group, and Everlight Electronics, a renowned LED manufacturer, two other major players in the lighting segment support the ISELED ecosystem.
The Dräxlmaier Group's product portfolio for the premium automotive industry includes integrated ambient & functional lighting systems, interior systems, wiring systems and battery systems for e-mobility. The company, headquartered in Vilsbiburg, Lower Bavaria, was founded in 1958 and today employs around 70,000 people in over 20 countries.
Everlight Electronics is an optoelectronics manufacturer and supplier of LED solutions based in Taipei, Taiwan. It markets LEDs, SMD and THR lamps, digital displays, IR transmitters, optical sensors and optocouplers.
