Compound Photonics partners with GLOBALFOUNDRIES to produce its microLED microdisplay backplanes

In 2020 Compound Photonics (CP) announced its high-performance IntelliPix microLED microdisplay backplane technology. CP's backplane supports resolutions up to 2048x2048 and a pixel pitch from 1.5 um and up.

Compound Photonics now announced a partnership with specialty foundry GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF) to produce the IntelliPix backplanes. CP's devices will be realized on GF’s best-in-class 22FDX specialty semiconductor platform.

The IntelliPix platform is based on CP's OnDemand Pixels technology, which 'intelligently focuses only on changing pixels". This conserves power in inactive pixel regions and enhances image quality, according to the company. The company says that be leverating GF's high-performance and ultra-low power 22FDX platform, the new backlanes will enable high frame rates, low latency, and low power consumption.

CP says it expects the first commercial products based on its microLED microdisplay backplanesto be on the market in 2023.
