Plessey to exhibit at Light+Building -- 13-18 March 2016

PLYMOUTH, ENGLAND – Plessey will be exhibiting at the Light+Building event from 13-18 March 2016 at the Fair and Exhibition Centre in Frankfurt, Germany. Light+Building is the world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building services technology. Plessey will be showcasing its latest, GaN-on-silicon, LED solutions with Stellar™ beam forming LED modules that offer designers unprecedented levels of design freedom in medium and high power lighting applications. The combination of Plessey’s MaGIC™ high efficiency, surface-emitting LEDs with unique modular optics represents the next phase in the LED lighting revolution. Plessey lighting solutions create ‘modern spaces’ that contribute to an improved quality of life.

Dr. Keith Strickland, Plessey CTO, said, “At Light+Building, we will be pleased to present our Stellar beam forming light modules, and meet with lighting designers interested in the design freedom provided by this new technology. Innovators in lighting are excited by the way we can eliminate secondary optics by integrating LEDs and optics, enabling more compact and elegant luminaires, reduced R&D time and supply chain simplification. We will also be showcasing our latest super high power devices in the i²LED™ family, and demonstrating a number of concept solutions designed around our award-winning GaN-on-Silicon technology. We will continue to invest in and improve our manufacturing capabilities in key critical areas elevating the MaGIC™ LEDs above all available LED technologies.”

Giuliano Cassataro, Plessey’s LED Sales Director, said, “We have the technology and supply chain to provide mass customisation of lighting solutions for manufacturers in commercial segments of the lighting market. This allows our customers to achieve competitive differentiation in their designs, and faster time to market. While there is overcapacity in the low and mid power market, there is insufficient supply in the fastest growing markets of high power and super high power LEDs. Plessey’s recent capacity expansion of our Plymouth facility, combined with our differentiated technology where integration of intelligence and optics is possible, is the direction that LED lighting is headed. We are thrilled that we will be showcasing this integration of solid state lighting solutions at Light+Building 2016.”

Plessey will hold product demonstrations presented by technical and design experts at Hall 6.2 stand C11, providing an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of its latest products and concept solutions for the commercial, industrial, consumer and wearable lighting segments. Light+Building will open on Sunday the 13th March to 17th March from 9am to 6pm and on Friday the 18th March from 9am to 5pm. Tickets for the exhibition are available through the event homepage:

Plessey is a leader in high power LED design and manufacture using their MaGIC™ (Manufactured GaN-on-Si I/C) technology. Plessey’s silicon based LEDs have permitted the integration of sensing, measurement, control and optics on chip for a variety of solid state lighting sysem applications. The integrated intelligent LEDs – Plessey’s i²LED™family – brings to a variety of applications a new level of design freedom designers could only dream of previously. The company has won numerous awards for its LED technology and innovation in lighting and most recently was named 2015 Company of the Year by the UK’s National Microelectronics Institute (NMI).
