Plessey Expands GaN-on Si LED Distribution Network In Europe

CODICO partnership expands coverage in Central and East European, Italian and Danish markets for GaN-on-Si LED products

Plessey announced today that it has entered into a distribution agreement with CODICO GmbH, a distributor of electronic components, headquartered in Perchtoldsdorf, Austria and with offices across Europe.  With CODICO, Plessey will be expanding its European network with coverage in Central and East European, Italian and Danish market for its GaN-on-Si LED products.

Sven Krumpel, president and CEO of CODICO GmbH, said: "CODICO is very pleased to announce this partnership with Plessey.  We are convinced that the innovative technology of Plessey and CODICO's deep knowledge of the market will enable both companies to turn on a bright light within the solid state lighting market. I strongly believe that the GaN-on-Si technology is going to be the next revolution in the lighting field and that Plessey and CODICO will be driving it."

David Owen, Plessey's regional sales director, added: "CODICO's line card complements the Plessey LED portfolio in the lighting segment and together with its focused team that brings considerable knowledge of the lighting industry and customer base, will accelerate the time to market for Plessey GaN-on-Si LEDs in the region."

Plessey's MaGIC (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si I/C) High Brightness LED (HBLED) technology has won awards for its innovation and ability to cut the cost of LED lighting by using standard silicon manufacturing techniques.  



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.
