The market for xenon and bi-xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting is growing. Bi-xenon means that only one xenon light source is used to create both low and high beams via a mechanical shutter. Vishay supports xenon and bi-xenon HID applications with a variety of discrete electronic components. The ballasts and motor controls for headlight leveling (HLL) and advanced front lighting (AFL) controllers need discrete components. Improved visibility and safety on the road are the reasons for the success of gas discharge lamps (xenon). Because its very fast reaction time improves safety, LED technology is used for tail lights. In the future, LEDs will be used more and more for headlights because of their design flexibility, energy-savings, and very long lifetimes.
