Plessey signs Matrix to expand distribution network into Iberia

Plessey Semiconductors Ltd of Plymouth, UK has entered into a distribution agreement with Matrix Electrónica S.L. for the Iberian market for Plessey’s gallium nitride on silicon (GaN-on-Si) LED products. Headquartered in Madrid with offices across Spain, Portugal and Chile, Matrix is an electronics distributor and provider of complete electronic solutions.

Plessey says that its GaN-on-Si LEDs are produced using standard silicon-based semiconductor manufacturing processes, in contrast with existing LEDs that use more expensive sapphire and other exotic materials. The firm aims to drive global uptake of its patented MAGIC (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si I/C) technology as a cost-effective alternative to existing solid-state lighting (SSL) LED technologies.

“The combination of Plessey’s innovative products and our extensive knowledge of the market will be very successful,” believes Matrix’s president & CEO Jose María Vilallonga Presas. “GaN-on-Si technology is going to be a revolution in the solid-state lighting market, and Matrix will be a pioneer in introducing the new technology in Spain and Portugal,” he adds.

“Plessey are very pleased to work with a distributor who has been focusing on the solid-state lighting market for a considerable number of years,” comments Plessey’s regional sales director David Owen. “Matrix has a dedicated team working in the lighting segment and therefore considerable knowledge of the lighting industry and customer base in the region.”
