Plessey has appointed Edward H. Frank to its microLED advisory board, as part of the rapid development of the company's microLED technology.

Keith Strickland, co-CEO and CTO at Plessey, said: “Ed's strong and proven history of developing and bringing revolutionary solutions to market makes him an excellent addition to our advisory board. His expertise in delivering innovative silicon and systems, at companies both large and small, will be invaluable as we continue to provide cutting-edge microLED display solutions to AR applications.”

Frank commented:“MicroLED display has many advantages such as high brightness, ultra-low power consumption, fast response time, very high contrast rate, wide colour gamut, long lifetime, environmental stability, high resolution, the option of flexible backplanes and integration of sensors in the display. Its main challenges are manufacturing complexity and yield issues, all of which Plessey are addressing, I am excited to be working with such an innovative, cutting-edge technology company.”

Previously, Frank was CEO and co-founder of Cloud Parity, a voice-of-the-customer start-up. Earlier, he served as VP of Macintosh Hardware Systems Engineering at Apple, as corporate VP of R&D at Broadcom, a broad-based manufacturer of wireless chips used in many Apple devices and served as a distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems.Frank currently serves on the boards of Analog Devices, and Marvell.

AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
