Plessey Launches GaN-on-silicon LEDs For Wearables

The gallium nitride on silicon dotLED is 0.2mm in height and designed for applications that demand low profile electronic components
Plessey has announced the launch of its smallest packaged MaGIC LED manufactured on a GaN-on-silicon I/C. aimed at the surging wearable electronics market.


The PLW138003 is a white LED in a 1005 SMT package designed specifically for the demand for ever smaller LED components producing highly collimated light.


Plessey's dotLEDs weighing 0.2 milligrams and a profile of 0.2mm are an option for any wearable application with LED content.

The 1005-size of the PLW138003 (1.0mm x 0.5mm) is a standard electronic component size, handled by the common surface-mount machines used in high volume consumer electronics. The Plessey dotLED is 0.2mm in height and designed specifically for applications that demand low profile electronic components.


This first product in Plessey's dotLED family is the PLW138003, delivering up to 0.7lm of white light with a 1300 viewing angle from a 5mA drive current. A blue version, the PLB138003 is also available.


Further additions to the dotLED family will be colour variants and a series in the larger 1608 footprint. Plessey also provides a range of blue LED die for customers needing a further breakthrough in size: the PLB030003 ultra-thin die is just 200µm x 200µm x 7µm.


Plessey's LEDs are produced using its proprietary MaGIC technology. By using standard silicon semiconductor production techniques, Plessey is able to produce high-volume high-quality industry standard LEDs that are demanded in the consumer electronics market. The 1005-size dotLEDs are the latest product family to be released using this technology.


Jose Lopez, Plessey's Chief Commercial Officer, says, "Plessey is demonstrating its commitment to bringing to market a comprehensive range of LED products across all markets and applications. The dotLED family addresses the exacting optical, mechanical and cost requirements where small is beautiful."

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.
