Plessey's DotLED Named In 2014 Hot List

EDN names tiny LED as one of 2014's most significant products

Plessey today announced that EDN named its smallest packaged MaGIC LED (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si I/C), the dotLED, as one of the Hot 100 Products of 2014. The 2014 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry's most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity, chosen by EDN's editors and readers.

The PLW13D003, a white LED in a 1005 SMT package, is designed specifically for the demand for ever smaller LED components producing highly collimated light and is aimed at the surging wearable electronics market and small display applications. 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. Plessey's dotLEDs weighing 0.2 milligrams and with a profile of 0.25mm are an industry-leading option for any wearable application with LED content that demand low profile electronic components.

The miniscule, dot-sized LEDs delivers up to 0.7 Lumen of white light with a 130deg 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.

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 using this technology.a

 "Plessey is demonstrating its commitment to bringing to market a comprehensive range of LED products across all performance points, markets and applications and the recognition as one of EDN's Hot 100 products is an honour and reflects the focus on innovation through our GaN-on-Silicon LED technology," said David Owen, Plessey's marketing director, said,

Rich Pell, executive and chief technical editor of EDN said: "Of the many thousands of products announced during the past year, the EDN Hot 100 are the products that especially caught the attention of our editors and readers. We are pleased to share the tradition of showcasing these technologies as we celebrate the 21st anniversary of this program."



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.
