Porotech developed the world's first native InGaN red microLED microdisplay

Porous-GaN material platform developer Porotech announced that it has created the world's first microLED microdisplay based on a native red InGaN LED. The microdisplay is a 0.55" diagonal panel with a resolution of 960x540.

Porotech says that its native InGaN red LEDs will offer higher efficiency than currently-used AlInGaP red LEDs. Developing an RGB microdisplay all from InGaN chips will also offer easier driving and process design.

TCL announced smart glasses with a color microLED display

TCL announced a new AR smartglasses product, which it calls the Thunderbird Smart Glasses Pioneer Edition. TCL did not reveal much, but it says the color display is based on microLED technology, with a pixel pitch of 4 um. TCL did not release any estimated shipping dates or a price for this new product, which is likely still at an early stage.

The video above is not clear, but it seems as if this solution uses three monochrome microdisplays, combined to show a single full-color image (the video shows one panel, but it later shows three monochrome images combined into one full-color display). This kind of solution was suggested by Vuzix, based on JBD's 0.13" VGA monochrome microdisplays. Which incidentally offer a pixel pitch of 4um, which leads us to speculate that TCL is also basing its Thunderbird glasses on JBD's displays.

Youngwoo DSP to lead a Korean effort to develop microLED display technologies

Korea-based test equipment maker Youngwoo DSP announced that it was chosen to lead a new Government-funded project to develop ultra-small microLED package technology (likely this refers to a LED transfer and assembly technologies).

The four-year project (which will end by December 31, 2024) will be awarded with a budget of 25.36 billion Won ($21.4 million USD). The project's goal is to enable the production of 360 PPI displays. The core technology will be around the alignment precision, it seems

ITRI developed new in-cell technology to embed biosensors in microLED display panels

Taiwan's leading research institute, ITRI, developed a new in-cell technology to integrate sensors within microLED display panels.

ITRI says that it is the first in the world to enable a full-screen multi-finger fingerprint sensor. ITRI says that its new technology does not increase the display's thickness and can thus be implemented even in small wearable smartwatch displays.

TrendForce: the market for microLED TV chips to grow to $3.4 billion by 2025

Market analysts from Trendforce estimate that the market for microLED chips used in the TV market will grow from around $23 million in 2021 to over $3.4 billion by 2025.

TV microLED chip revenues forecast (2021-2025, Trendforce)

Trendforece acknowledges the many challenges facing the display industry before microLED TVs are mass produced - the high cost of microLED chips (most of the cost of current microLED TVs lies in the LEDs). But the large investments by TV brands, the ability to create tiled displays and the high quality and sizes enabled by microLED technology, will all contribute to the market growth in coming years.
