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.
