Plessey expands LED capability, moves into packaging
Looking to bolster its existing solid state lighting business, Plessey has announced its expansion into chip scale packages and wafer level packaging.
"Our most recent advancements in performance to greater than 50% wall plug efficiency coupled with our unique semiconductor technologies and manufacturing capabilities have pushed us to our next stage of technology development," said the company's CTO Dr Keith Strickland.
The Plymouth-based firm has developed an application specific LED, called the AS-LED, which it says will satisfy the solid state lighting industry's need for mass customisation.The solution will be available for sampling later this year.
Dr Strickland continued: "We need to move the conversation from lumens/watt to how the semiconductor industry can provide the capability for mass customisation needed for the solid state lighting industry.
"Our LED components are more than competitive with any sapphire or silicon carbide solution, but the industry needs far more. We believe our AS-LED provides the solution to the mass customisation needed in the solid state lighting markets."
