Everlight highlighting lighting and automotive LEDs and IR sensors at electronica

On Stand 307 (Hall A3) at the electronica 2016 trade fair in Munich, Germany (8-11 November), Taiwan-based Everlight Electronics Co Ltd is showcasing its newest infrared, automotive and lighting.

A focus is Everlight's infrared portfolio of ambient light sensors (ALS), color sensors, infrared LEDs, photo-diodes, photo-transistors, infrared receiver modules (IRM), photo-couplers, phototriacs, solid-state relays (SSR), photo interrupters (ITR) and optical switches.

In particular, the development of ambient light sensors for wearables has created new opportunities regarding mobile data tracking as well as rapid detection for health analysis. The new ALS-PD50-42C operates at a green wavelength of 550nm with a sensing area of 8.1mm2, and has a very low signal calculation failure rate and high current efficiency. A suitable application is heart rate signal detection in wearable electronics for the health and fitness industry.

Regarding increasing safety concerns worldwide, surveillance and security applications are becoming increasingly important. Light sensors such as the ALS-PDIC243-3C tell you if the light in the environment is sufficient. If it is not, IR LEDs like the HIR-C19D or HIR333C provide additional illumination to boost the capability of a camera to see at night or in dark surroundings.

Everlight is also showcasing new solutions for color binning for interior and exterior automotive lighting applications along with other key automotive products. One example is white color binning for dashboard applications like switches, instrument clusters and displays. Everlight says that it follows binning standards and offer different binning methods to make it easy to apply LEDs in automotive applications. Also, in response to the design trend for personal in-car ambient lighting, Everlight provides multi-color solutions like RGBW and RGBY LEDs.

Regarding lighting LEDs, Everlight is putting special emphasis on its full-color LED portfolio, including multiple wavelengths to boost agriculture. The easiest way to achieve effective agricultural lighting is to provide either a spectrum of light that best replicates sunlight or the required spectrums/color combinations for specific functions. Color combinations vary depending on region, time, temperature, plant, plant cycle, production targets etc. Everlight says that it has all the basic colors needed for replicating sunlight and activating specific functions for agricultural lighting. For any part of the spectrum where additional colors need to be added or additional light functions are needed, different color LEDs are available for customer selection and tuning. Other markets for full color LEDs (in addition to agricultural lighting) include architectural, stage and landscape lighting. The latest product from Everlight for these industries is an RGBW in one high-power LED.

Everlight is also showcasing UVA and UVC series LEDs, both featuring many applications ranging from curing of glues applied on industrial PCBs, light sources for exposure equipment, ink drying for printing systems, disinfection and sterilization, biological analysis and testing, water and air purification, money detector pens, cosmetic curing, to tanning machines.
