Light Emitting Diodes are becoming more and more common in today's automotive styling. Part of our philosophy includes staying on top of the latest trends and we have exhausted much effort in the development of new LED-based products. Though our range here may not be as wide as other manufactures, what you should understand is that LED for automotive lighting is still considered new technology and therefore we've only adopted it in areas we feel it has matured enough to be relied upon. We will not utilize LED in places that may sacrifice functionality relative to other light sources, or if we cannot be sure of the long term reliability. Therefore, though our LED product line may be thin, we assure you it's also quite solid.
Morimoto currently uses SMD (surface mounted) and Hybrid-LED (SMD combined with a blanket phosphor layer) packages in our daytime running lights, angel eye halos, and projector fog lights. We source our chips through a variety of select domestic suppliers, and also integrate chips from other well-respected suppliers such as CREE and Philips.
Like our other products, some LED-based items may be customized or packaged according to our clients varying needs through the use of laser-engraving, substitution of LED chips according to brand preference, and specialized packaging.
