OSRAM Opto Semiconductors

Company type:  

Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH, Regensburg, is a wholly owned subsidiary of OSRAM, a leading supplier and manufacturer of lighting solutions who employs more than 35,000 people throughout the world.

OSRAM released the world's first OLED lamp back in 2008, but this was more of a prototype than a commercial product. In November 2009 they have started to ship their first OLED lighting panel, the ORBEOS, and here's our hands-on review of those panels.

In 2014 or so OSRAM shifted its OLED lighting focus to the automotive market. OSRAM was the first company to supply OLED lighting panels for serially produced cars as it supplies the OLEDs for BMW's M4 GTS taillights and also the OLED lighting in Audi's TT RS Coupe 2016.

In 2018 OSRAM decided to pull out of the OLED lighting market. The company will continue to provide product support for both automakers until 2020, and will continue to monitor the market.

OSRAM used to offer PMOLED display panels (under the Pictiva brand), but this is now discontinued.
