Saelig Sampling Plessey GaN-on-Si MAGIC LEDs

The III-nitride LEDs are due to begin volume production in the final quarter of 2013

Saelig Company is now distributing samples of Plessey Semiconductors' GaN-on-Silicon MAGIC PLW111010 PLCC-2 SMT white light LEDs.

These LEDs are claimed to be the first commercially available solid state illuminators manufactured on 6" GaN-on-Silicon substrates.

Magic PLW111010 Standard LEDs

With production yields of greater than 95 percent and fast processing times, a significant cost advantage can be offered over sapphire and SiC-based LED solutions for a wide range of industry-standard solid-state illumination and indicator applications.

Designed for ambient decorative lighting and automotive interior applications, MAGIC PLW111010 PLCC-2 SMT LEDs are high efficiency 465nm blue emitters with phosphor wavelength spreading to provide near-Lambertian distribution with brightness from 360mcd to 1080 mcd.

The 2000-piece reels of LEDs are binned for a single intensity and colour to provide close uniformity in manufacturing assembly lines. The LED’s forward voltage drop is 3.8V at a maximum current of 25mA.

Using standard semiconductor manufacturing processing provides significant cost advantages over conventional, more expensive LEDs of similar quality which are based on sapphire or SiC technology.

MAGIC LEDs are built using a thin 2.5 µm Gallium GaN layer on a 6 inch silicon substrate, delivering industry-standard performance at a dramatically reduced manufacturing cost.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

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

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. 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. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove 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.
