Seems unlikely to me.  Plasma is slowly fading away in the competition with 
other technologies like LCD and (hopefully someday) OLED.

The competing technologies will still have switching power supplies, but aren't 
based on a gas discharge technology like plasma so hopefully life will get 
quieter for us again over the next few years.
