Plessey Shortlisted For Lux Awards 2016

LED maker up for 'Manufacturer of the Year' and 'Enabling Technology of the Year'

UK-based LED manufacturer Plessey has been shortlisted  in the 2016 Lux Awards for two categories: 'Manufacturer of the Year', and 'Enabling Technology of the Year' for its new Orion beam forming module.

The Orion is an innovative slimline module to be used in directional light.  It has been designed to remove many of the restraints typically found in COB type modules, and will bring opportunities, quality of light and freedom of design, according to the company.

Winners of the Lux Awards will be announced at the award ceremony taking place on Thursday 24th November 2016 at The InterContinental London - The O2. The awards will follow on from Europe's biggest annual lighting event, LuxLive, which will be held in London from 23rd-24th November. 

Plessey will be exhibiting at LuxLive for its third year running. It will be showing the first standardised product using its Stellar Optic Technology  and will demonstrate a number of lighting solutions designed around its MaGIC LED technology for the solid state lighting market. 

Neil Harper, product marketing director at Plessey, commented: "We are delighted to be shortlisted in two categories for such prestigious awards.  Plessey is dedicated to using the best of British research, manufacturing and engineering to create disruptive andinnovative technologies to bring a positive influence to the interaction we all have with technology. 

"Plessey demonstrates true innovation through its disruptive GaN-on-silicon technology.  We are not following traditional trends, we are transforming the way in which LEDs are used in the lighting market rather than mirroring what others have done before.  Our LED products will change the way people will experience lighting in the future," he added.

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.
