As their efficiencies rise and costs come down, LEDs are finding greater automotive use. But because of their compact packaging, heat rejection from the devices, and associated driver circuitry, is a major design issue.
This How-To article (click) outlines the most recent advances in LED technology and automotive applications. The design of an LED headlight is given as an example of considerations necessary to design for these light sources in the auto environment.
