Epistar to invest $122 million USD to build 150 mm microLED epiwafer capacity

According to Ennostar, the company intends to invest around $122 million USD in its Epistar subsidiary, with an aim to setup a production capacity of 150mm microLED epitaxial wafers. The investment will be performed in several stages.

Ennostar also updates that Epistar has completed its mini LED chip production capacity, but the demand for such chips is lower than expected, and so the company's mini LED production utilization is not at 100%.

Report suggests both Samsung and LG started developing microLED microdisplays

According to a report from Korea, both Samsung Display and LG Display started to develop microLED microdisplay technologies.

Both companies have recently started to develop OLED microdisplays. According to the report, Samsung targets AR devices with its microLED microdisplay technology, while it targets VR devices with its OLED microdisplays. Samsung's microLED displays will achieve a resolution of 6,000 to 7,000 PPI (higher than its OLED devices).

The display is JBD's standard 0.13" VGA display, but one that emits UVA emission. JBD also developed a custom projector for this new application. The extremely small, yet bright, display module, enabled Anycubic to design an extremely small printer (which is about the size of a 550 cl beverage can). The printer will be able to print details as small as 10 µm due to the high pixel density (>6000PPI) of the microLED display. The energy consumption during operation is only 6W.

JBD says it developed a proprietary (and patented) technology in which the epitaxy layers were designed to be less susceptibility to edge effects, which helps to increase the display's efficiency. JBD's technology also enables effective mesa sidewall passivation. JBD refers to its technology as monolithic hybrid integration and says it can reach a PPI of up to 10,000 with a pixel pitch of 2.5 um.

Aixtron receives its first order for tools used for volume production of microLEDs

Aixtron announced its financial results for Q2 2022, with the company's highest quarterly order intake since 2011. The company said that it received its first order for tools used in volume production of microLED devices.

Aixtron announced several microLED system orders in the past, but these were R&D or pilot line systems. In 2021 Aixtron said that a US Tier-1 LED producer has selected Aixtron's AIX G5+ C equipment for microLED device production. In February 2022 Wuhan-based HC Semitek selected Aixtron's Planetary AIX 2800G4-TM (IC2) and AIX G5+ C MOCVD systems to produce microLEDs.
