Plessey Launches dotLED, One Of The World's Thinnest LEDs, That Is Ideal For The Wearable Electronics Market

Posted: Updated:

Plymouth, ENGLAND – 27 March 2014 – Plessey today announced the launch of its smallest packaged MaGIC™ LED (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si 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 industry-leading 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 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: the PLB030003 ultra-thin die is just 200um x 200um x 75um.

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.

Dr. Jose Lopez, Plessey’s Chief Commercial Officer, said, “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.”
