Plessey Sampling New Generation Of GaN-on-Silicon LEDs

Samples of the UK firm's p/n PLW114050 LED are currently available in a CCT range from 6500K to 2700K, in an industry standard 3020 package. With a drive current of 60mA, the PLW114050 has a typical forward voltage of 3.2V




Plessey has announced the availability of its next generation GaN-on-Silicon mid-power LEDs. 

The product family doubles the efficacy of Plessey's first generation MAGIC (manufactured on GaN-on-Silicon I/C) products released in February 2013. Using standard silicon semiconductor production techniques, Plessey says it is able to achieve high flux output LED products at substantially lower cost. The PLW114050 is the first in a family of entry-level LED lighting products that will be released.

"We have made great strides forward in refining, productising and improving our patented MAGIC technology," says Keith Strickland, Plessey's Chief Technology Officer. "We have a roadmap that puts MAGIC ahead of the efficacies achieved by sapphire-based LEDs and, thereby, sets a new milestone in terms of Lm/$ performance."

He continues, "By approaching efficacy parity, we are accelerating the widespread adoption of GaN-on-Silicon LED-based lighting products. Our MAGIC LED products have a cost advantage over comparable sapphire-based LEDs as we use 6-inch, high yield, standard, automated silicon manufacturing technology."

Jose Lopez, Plessey's Chief Commercial Officer, adds, "Customers are delighted that a European company is committed to developing and manufacturing world class GaN-on-Silicon LEDs. The market currently has many suppliers of LEDs but the quality and reliability can be variable. Plessey is a trusted brand with a 50-year plus track record of manufacturing products to the highest standards. Our aim is to light the world with MAGIC LEDs."

The PLW114050 product is available in a CCT range from 6500K to 2700K, with a Lambertian distribution in an industry standard 3020 package. With a drive current of 60mA, the PLW114050 has a typical forward voltage of 3.2V. A full datasheet is available on the Plessey website. Plessey also supplies the blue LED PLB010050 in sawn-wafer die form. Additional package options will be made available.

Sample requests can be made on the Plessey website, www.plesseysemi.com.

 

 



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.
