Technology Leadership in Infrared LED Technology

Infrared Illumination plays a significant role in a broad field of security applications – ranging from security cameras to biometric identification methods such as 2D Face recognition, fingerprint scanning and 3D Sensing in the consumer space. Having a long history in the field of developing infrared LEDs, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors is technology leader, offering several different products matching the different requirements of each application area.

The newest addition to the portfolio are the OSLON P1616 devices that come with integrated optics – SFH 4171S and SFH 4181S – with a brilliant package-to-power ratio and the smallest package of only 1.6x 1.6x 1.7 mm³ making the devices ideal for space critical application, e.g. user authentication for mobile devices such as laptops or smart doorbells.

We help you finding the right IR LED for your specific application! Several factors such as the illumination system itself, as well as requirements towards the camera and the operation mode of the system influence the choice of the infrared light soure.
