Plessey launches 1005-size SMT-packaged LEDs for wearable electronics

Plessey Semiconductors Ltd of Plymouth, UK has launched its smallest packaged MaGIC LED (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si I/C), which is aimed at the surging wearable electronics market. As the first product in the new dotLED family, 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 says that the new dotLEDs, weighing 0.2mg with a profile of 0.2mm, are suitable 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 common surface-mount machines used in high-volume consumer electronics. With a height of just 0.2mm, the dotLED is designed specifically for applications that demand low-profile electronic components.

The PLW138003 delivers up to 0.7lm of white light with a 130° viewing angle from a 5mA drive current. A blue version (the PLB138003) is also available. Further additions to the dotLED family will be color 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 200μm x 200μm x 75μm.

Plessey’s LEDs are produced using its proprietary MaGIC technology. By using standard silicon semiconductor production techniques, the firm is able to produce high-volume industry-standard LEDs for the consumer electronics market. The 1005-size dotLEDs are the latest product family to be released using this technology.

“Plessey is demonstrating its commitment to bringing to market a comprehensive range of LED products across all markets and applications,” chief commercial officer says Dr Jose Lopez.
