Plessey has rolled out its smallest packaged MaGIC LED (Manufactured on GaN-on-Si I/C) intended for the wearable electronics market. According to the company, the PLW138003 is a white LED in a 1005 SMT package that addresses the demand for ever smaller LED components producing highly collimated light.

Plessey's dotLEDs weighing 0.2mg and a profile of 0.2mm are an industry-leading option for any wearable application with LED content, stated the company. In addition, the Plessey dotLED is designed specifically for applications that demand low profile electronic components.


This first product in Plessey's dotLED family is the PLW138003, delivering up to 0.7Lm of white light with a 130-degree viewing angle from a 5mA drive current. A blue version, the PLB138003 is also available. Further additions to the dotLED family will be colour 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 200 x 200 x 75um.

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