Plessey Awarded Two Trophies at the Electronics Industry Awards for its GaN-on-Silicon MicroLED Technology

In the stunning setting of London’s Tower Hotel, the 2019 Electronics Industry Awards crowned the sector’s leading products, companies and professionals as champions in front of an audience of esteemed professionals.

Plessey had plenty of reasons to celebrate as they won two accolades. The company collected the Display Product of the Year and the Embedded Solution Product of the Year for its microLED Emissive Display.

Commenting on the wins, editor of CIE magazine, Niamh Marriot said: “As demand for microLED displays is accelerating, Plessey’s GaN-on-Silicon is recognised as the only technology platform capable of addressing all of the challenges involved with manufacturing microLED displays in high volumes cost-effectively. It is also one of the only viable solutions that can enable products that are not only compact enough to be worn without restricting the overall experience for AR applications and in HUDs, but also provide the size, weight, power and luminance needed. I am thrilled that this product has won two awards. With its integrated components and excellent thermal performance, it is a standout display.”

Mike Lee, President of Corporate and Business Development at Plessey, said: “It is a great honour to have been awarded with two accolades in the EIAs. As the only provider of GaN-on-Silicon monolithic microLEDs, Plessey is disrupting the display market with a technology that delivers a tangibly better consumer experience. We’re very proud of this technology and the solutions we are able to provide to help enable the next-generation of consumer electronics.”

The event – organised by Datateam Business Media – has become a highlight of the industry calendar since its inception in 2018, where leading figures from the electronics field gather to celebrate their achievements and reward the market leaders from across the blossoming sector.

This year proved to be no different, as the afternoon began with an exclusive champagne reception where guests had an invaluable opportunity to network with peers, before being invited to sit down to enjoy a delicious three-course luncheon and the highly anticipated awards presentation.

The ceremony, hosted by comedian Ian Moore and household favourite Alan Dedicoat, saw 18 accolades presented to the leading products, companies and individuals that the electronics sector has to offer.
