The small LED die have a footprint of 0.2 mm x 0.2 mm, which makes them a perfect fit for low profile electronic wearable applications.

“We continue to win designs in the growing market for wearables and are now producing millions of LEDs every month. Our dotLED product range addresses the optical, mechanical and cost requirements for the typical wearable applications. These include wristbands trackers for health and fitness as well as many other applications for dot matrix displays,” said Giuliano Cassataro, Plessey’s VP of Sales.

The white dotLED is available in a 1005 SMT package (1.0 mm x 0.5 mm), which is a standard electronic component size easily handled by standard surface-mount machines used in high volume, consumer electronics manufacturing. Delivering up to 1.0 Lm of white light with a 130 degree viewing angle from a 5 mA drive current, the PLW13D003 meets the demand for ever smaller displays. A blue version, the PLB13D003 is also available in a variety of wavelengths from 460 nm to 480 nm.

“The increasing popularity of our dotLEDs has led us to develop our first chip scale package (CSP) solution around the fit and performance of this product range. Samples for this even smaller form factor will be available September this year in a selection of temperatures and colors,” commented Dr. Keith Strickland, Plessey’s CTO.
