Plessey's GaN-on-Si LEDs powering 8point3's linear lighting products

Plessey of Plymouth, UK has entered a long-term commercial agreement to supply its gallium nitride on silicon MaGIC (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si I/C) high-brightness LEDs to UK-based LED luminaire manufacturer 8point3 Ltd for use in its new Sabre Architectural range of LED linear lighting products (to branded with the official ‘Made in Britain' marquee).

Plessey says that recent performance improvements have enabled its MaGIC LEDs to be competitive with any LED technology. Sabre Architectural combines the benefits of remote phosphor with a unique delivery system, offering high system efficiencies and economic life. With a wide range of colour temperatures, Sabre Architectural is said to provide a uniform and diffuse luminance and appearance, ensuring no reflections or pixilation (even when dimming), offering designers a flexible solution for high-lumen areas and decorative lighting systems.

“A technology agreement has also been reached, whereby Plessey will design bespoke LED solutions in the UK to complement 8point3’s ongoing lighting projects,” says Mark Pinnock, Plessey’s regional sales manager for Northern Europe and account manager for 8point3.

Plessey’s range of products for lighting applications is being showcased in stand D31 at LuxLive (the UK’s biggest lighting show) at ExCel London (19-20 November).
