Techniques are disclosed for attaching SMDs to a flexible substrate using conductive epoxy bond pads. Each bond pad includes a set of elongated strips of conductive epoxy that are applied and cured onto the flexible substrate in an adjacent and parallel fashion. The bond pads are used to attach SMDs to the flexible substrate and also provide the conductive contacts for a printed circuit. A circuit may be printed on the flexible substrate using conductive ink that partially covers the bond pads, leaving a portion of the pads exposed. A second layer or strip of conductive epoxy may be applied over and across the exposed portions of the bond pad strips in order to attach an SMD. The number, size, and orientation of the epoxy bond pad strips may be determined by the amount of bending the flexible substrate is expected to withstand and/or the orientation of the bend.


An integrated light engine including flexible optics and a flexible light source, and lighting devices including the same, are provided. The integrated light engine includes a flexible light source configured to emit light, and flexible optics coupled to the flexible light source. The flexible optics beam shapes light emitted by the flexible light source. The integrated light engine is capable of entering a set of states, such that a portion of beam shaped light emitted by the integrated light engine in a first state is aimed in a first direction and a portion of beam shaped light emitted by the integrated light engine in a second state is aimed in a second direction. Different combinations of the flexible optics with the flexible light source result in the integrated light engine being able to enter a number of flexed states or being held in a substantially flat, substantially stiff state.

Enclosures with grommetless strain relief are provided, each including a base and a cover. The base has a bottom and four sidewalls arranged to provide an open box-like structure. A first of the sidewalls of the base is configured with a wire routing slot at its perimeter. The cover has a top and four sidewalls arranged to provide an open box-like structure configured to couple with the base, so as to provide a strain relief for an electrical wire passing through the wire routing slot. The wire is pressed against a length of the first sidewall of the base by a first sidewall of the cover. The enclosure may include other features, such as rounded edges in the wire routing path, a wire guide and/or strap to inhibit wire movement between the first sidewalls, and/or one or more locking mechanisms configured to secure the cover to the base.

An automotive lamp capsule (12) containing filament (24) mounted within a capsule envelope (20) that has a light-transmissive coating (60) that increases the color temperature of light passing therethrough. Two uncoated windows (62) on envelope (20) in register with filament (24) extend towards capsule base (20) and alternate, in a direction circumferentially around capsule envelope (20), with two coated portions (64) at that axial location along optical axis (O). A distance from filament (24) to a lower edge (68) of window (62) bounds a region of light emitted from filament (24) whose color temperature is not increased by coating (60) and defines the hot spot (105) in a beam projected from a vehicle reflector (14) in which capsule (12) is mounted. Light emitted by filament (24) passing adjacent to windows (62) through regions of coating (60) form a spread light pattern (112) of advantageous, higher color temperature than previously achievable.
