LED PCBs for the Auto Industry
Electronics functions continue to increase dramatically in the modern day automobile. Greater use of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is a major portion of that remarkable auto-electronics growth. As replacements for older incandescent bulbs, LEDs are practically everywhere in newer auto models with such applications as stoplights, turn signal lights, internal lamps, fog lamps, dashboard and entertainment center lamps, and so on. The most recent automotive LED advancement comes from German automaker, Audi, which has introduced, for the first time, LED headlights as standard equipment in the 2010 Audi R8 V-10 model and optional on the V-8 R8 car model, as reported by Car and Driver Magazine.
