Solid State Supplies stocks Plessey dotLED LEDs for mobile and wearable electronics

Oct. 2, 2014

Redditch, UK: Solid State Supplies is now stocking Plessey dotLED™ 01005 chip-size surface-mount LEDs, which combine ultra-small dimensions with high optical output for use in mobile and wearable electronics.

The Plessey dotLED family, in blue and white colour options, joins the Solid State Supplies portfolio as part of the new distribution agreement between the two companies announced in August 2014. The LEDs have a 1.0mm x 0.5mm outline, an extremely low profile of 0.2mm, and minimal weight of just 0.2mg. These are Plessey’s smallest packaged LEDs, and are compatible with automated surface-mount assembly. The white dotLED, PLW138003, and blue dotLED, PLB138003, can be driven at up to 10mA and generate luminous intensity of up to 190mcd in the white version and 70mcd in the blue version. The devices produce highly collimated light, and have a 130° viewing angle. dotLED LEDs are the latest devices to be produced using Plessey’s proprietary MaGIC™ (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si I/C) technology. MaGIC leverages the cost benefits of standard silicon semiconductor fabrication techniques, to produce high-quality, high-performing LEDs that meet the exacting demands of consumer markets. The PLW138003 and PLB138003 are available to order now from Solid State Supplies. Plessey’s range of products for lighting applications will be showcased at LuxLive, ExCel London, 19-20 November, Stand D31. Solid State Supplies will also highlight its full lighting portfolio on Stand C30 at LuxLive.
