Plessey wins awards for GaN-on-Si microLED technology


Company wins Display Product of the Year and the Embedded Solution Product of the Year

At the 2019 Electronics Industry Awards held at London’s Tower Hotel, Plessey won awards for the Display Product of the Year and the Embedded Solution Product of the Year for its microLED Emissive Display.

Commenting on the wins, editor of CIE magazine, Niamh Marriot said: “As demand for microLED displays is accelerating, Plessey’s GaN-on-Silicon is recognised as the only technology platform capable of addressing all of the challenges involved with manufacturing microLED displays in high volumes cost-effectively. It is also one of the only viable solutions that can enable products that are not only compact enough to be worn without restricting the overall experience for AR applications and in HUDs, but also provide the size, weight, power and luminance needed. I am thrilled that this product has won two awards. With its integrated components and excellent thermal performance, it is a standout display.”

Mike Lee, president of corporate and business development at Plessey, said: “It is a great honour to be awarded these two accolades from the Electronics Industry Awards. As the only provider of GaN-on-Silicon based monolithic microLED displays, Plessey is disrupting the AR/VR market with proprietary technology that delivers a fully immersive, high brightness, high definition display experience. At Plessey we are very proud of our microLED technology and the solutions we are able to provide that enable the next-generation AR/VR display experience for consumer.”

The event – organised by Datateam Business Media – was started in 2018.
