Displays and LEDs – The next generation

The latest technologies at electronica 2012

Even more compact and flatter with better resolution and higher contrast – this is how the latest displays score at electronica 2012. LED technology is also on the advance. The implementation of the EU’s Ecodesign Directive is generating new, positive impulses in the market for innovative light sources. From 13. until 16. November exhibitors from all over the world show their products, the latest solutions and the most important trends in the areas of display and LED. At the automotive forum at electronica, industry experts will discuss displays and LEDs in the automotive sector. One of the highlights is the panel discussion “Light Concepts & LED” on 14. November.

According to a recent Bitkom study, more than 10 million flat screen televisions with LCD / LED displays are to be sold in Germany in 2012 – a new record. The next generation of displays with OLED and AMOLED technologies is already available for industrial applications and the consumer sector. LEDs and OLEDs are also gaining ground in innovative light sources. The implementation of the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125 / EG of the EU accelerates the market development. Light bulbs and other low-efficiency light sources have been gradually being phased out since 2009. Around 173 exhibitors will be showing the latest technical solutions, components and products on these and other topics such as automotive lighting, eSignage or industrial applications at electronica.

Touch technology and displays with compact technology

ncreasingly, displays not only provide graphic representation of digital content, but also replace other input devices such as computer keyboards. At electronica, Kyocera Fineceramics and Kyocera Display are presenting the “New Feelings” touch panel for the first time in Europe, with which the feeling of a real keystroke is conveyed on the display. Elektrosil is also showing various touch technologies, such as infrared, projected capacitive and resistive. The company will also be presenting various single and multi-touch solutions for industrial applications. In the entertainment area, Kyocera is also showing “Super Wide View” LCDs for extreme viewing angles with stable color behavior (“No Gray Inversion”) and “High Brightness Versions” with special brightness for outdoor use.

In the handheld area, for example with portable measuring and test devices, medical monitoring systems and industrial controls, the compactness of displays and the range of possible applications are what count. Data Modul will present the first standard chip-on-glass (COG) display with a resolution of 320 x 240 for which only one chip is required at electronica this year. The advantage of this solution is the easy and uncomplicated system integration with high resolution and contrast.

Main topic LED lighting technology

With the implementation of the EU’s Ecodesign Directive, LEDs will gradually become a standard in lighting technology over the next few years. Numerous exhibitors at electronica show the whole range of possible areas of application for LEDs. Osram will show the latest developments in the fields of automotive lighting, entertainment and security applications. Components that are already available but also prototypes of new products “in action” will be presented.

Displays and LEDs at the automotive forum

At the automotive forum, various lectures will address the subject of displays and LEDs in vehicles. The lecture by Robert Kraus, President / CEO of Inova Semiconductors, on “Gbps Networking for Automotive” will deal with the use of displays in vehicle equipment. Several lectures deal with the topic of LEDs in modern automobiles, including the presentation by Michael Brandl, Osram Semiconductors. Sein Thema ist “Emerging LED-based automotive applications – challenges and solutions”.

On Wednesday the 14th November, there will also be a panel discussion entitled “Lighting Concepts & LED”. Industry experts will discuss the trends in lighting and LED technology. Participants on the podium are Alfred Vollmer, editor at Automobil-Elektronik; Lars Reger, NXP Semiconductors; Dr. Wolfgang Bochtler, Mektec Europe; Holger Seibold, Automotive Lighting; Michael Brandl, Osram Opto Semiconductors and Rainer Böhm, Lear.

Press release of the fair

No. 8 / 31. August 2012

Electronica 2012 shows products and solutions for the electromobility of the future

International leading companies present by 13. to 16. November at electronica their products, the latest solutions and the most important trends in the field of electromobility. In the automotive forum, experts from industry give practical insights into technologies and markets. Already at 12. and On November 13th, industry specialists discuss strategies for tomorrow’s mobility at the electronica automotive conference in the ICM – International Congress Center Munich.

Over 1,000 exhibitors will be presenting technologies and products on the topic of automotive at electronica this year. One of the focal points in this area and one of the main themes of the fair is electromobility. In addition to the exhibition area, the topic is reflected in the program of the automotive forum and the electronica automotive conference, which together complete the 3-pillar concept of the fair.

product range from the circuit board to the vehicle concept

Visteon® is presenting its “e-Bee” concept for the first time at electronica. The automobile concept demonstrates new ways of using vehicles and entertainment electronics: from displays and graphical user interfaces to “cloud” profiles that allow the car to be personalized to the most varied of drivers and requirements. One of the most important innovations is that the concept is fully compatible with all common (vehicle) platforms for electric vehicles.

Mektec Europe is also facing the new challenges of the automotive industry: from infotainment and lighting to drive options and sensors. In almost all of these areas, modern cars rely on flexible printed circuit boards that connect electronics and mechanics. At electronica, Mektec will be showing its patented flexible printed circuit boards (Flex) with sealing function, which enable the parallel transmission of signal and power currents, as required, for example, in hybrid drives.

Visitors can also get a more in-depth look at the specialist area in the automotive forum in Hall A6. The program includes lectures on electromobility, power electronics, batteries and drive technology. For example, on Wednesday a panel with representatives from AEL, NXP, Osram Opto and other companies will discuss “lighting concepts and LEDs”. The current program of the automotive forum is online retrievable.

Developments, strategies and expert knowledge at the electronica automotive conference

Accompanying electronica will take place on 12. and November 13th the electronica automotive conference takes place. In around 30 lectures, international experts will shed light on current technologies and market developments on the subjects of “The Car in the Web”, “Energy Efficient Mobility”, “Safe Driving” and “Design to Cost”.

The first day of the conference is aimed in particular at top executives from automobile manufacturers, supplier and electronics companies. The program includes lectures such as the contribution by Dr. Rupert Stützle, Head of System Development for Electric Vehicles at Bosch, on the topic: “Powertrain Electrification: Current Challenges and Solutions in Development of Power Electronics” or from Wolfgang Sczygiol, Managing Director Brose-SEW, on the topic of “Strategies of Suppliers in the Market of Motors and Inductive Charging for Electric Mobility “. Further lectures on the first day of the conference will deal with the increasing networking of cars and the Internet, the LTE mobile communications standard and the topics of power electronics, motors and charging units for electric vehicles.

The second day of the conference is two-part. The focus is on technologies aimed at the technical management of automotive, supplier and electronics companies. In the first train, the focus is on electromobility in the mornings and power electronics in the afternoons. The second train deals with the topics of safety and the Internet in the car. The second day of the conference closes with a discussion on the subject of “Concepts of Mobility”.
