The Oslon Black Flat S in its 3-chip version provides an extended beam range. In addition, the tried and tested Topled is used in the sedan’s daytime running lights. The innovative feature of the Audi A8’s HD matrix headlights is that for the first time the Oslon Compact PL LEDs are arranged in two lines. As a result, other road users are masked out even more precisely by the light beam and are not dazzled. The Oslon Compact PL has an electrically insulated thermal contact. By using appropriate PCB technologies the thermal connection can be significantly improved, which leads to a higher luminous flux. At the same time, notchless chip technology allows the optical systems to be more efficient. After the market launch end of 2017, it is being used for the first time in the new Audi A8 as adaptive high beam and low beam. The Oslon Black Flat S family, which also features notchless chip technology and is also celebrating its premiere, has now been installed in the Audi A8 for the first time in its 3-chip version.
The individually controllable chips allow for the light beam to be adjusted to the respective situation, e.g. in city traffic or on the highway, increasing visual comfort.
