France-based Aledia, founded in 2011, developed a technology to grow 3D GaN LEDs on 200 mm and 300 mm silicon wafers using CMOS wafer-fabrication processes and tools. Aledia says that its LED chips are 25% cheaper compared to traditional planar LED chips, and these LEDs can be used for micro-LED displays.
Aledia raised over $40 million in two financing rounds in 2013 and 2015 and $36 million in its Round C financing round in 2018. In 2020 Aledia announced that it plans to establish a 140 million euros LED production fab. The company raised 80 million Euros towards the new plant in 2020, and in 2022 announced a $30 million line of credit.

The latest Aledia MicroLED news:
The MicroLED Industry Association (MIA) welcomes new members GE, Smartkem, DELO and Aledia, joining over 30 existing members (including large corporations, startup companies, research institutes and more). The MIA aims to accelerate the adoption of microLED display technologies, bringing together companies, researchers and organizations active in the MicroLED industry and providing an ideal forum for solving common technology issues, fostering cooperation and sharing relevant information, resources and tools.
The recently joined members commented:
"Aledia joins the MicroLED Industry Association to help promote microLED display technologies and to contribute to solving main roadblocks that slow down the move, including re-thinking displays architectures and concepts".
QustomDot announced an agreement with France-based 3D GaN LED developer Aledia to co-develop a full-color microLED displays, based on Aledia's high-efficiency Gan-on-Silicon 3D Nanowire LEDs grown on 300 mm wafers coupled with QustomDot's high performance quantum dots color conversion technology.
QustomDot developed a patented method to produce high-quality and stable QD materials suitable for microLEDs, that are heavy metal free. A few months ago the company announced it is co-developing microLED displays with MICLEDI.
Trinity Capital announced that it has closed $30 million equipment financing line for Aledia, which will use the funds to expand its microLED nanowire growth manufacturing facility, and accelerate its product platform and R&D.
Aledia announced in 2020 that it plans to establish a 140 million euros LED production fab in Champagnier, near Grenoble in France. The company already raised 80 million Euros towards that goal, and the new funds announced will add to that.
France-based 3D GaN LED developer Aledia announced that it has produced its first nanowire microLED chips on 300 mm silicon wafers, at the CEA-Leti pilot line. Producing microLEDs on large wafers is more cost effective and will enable integration with smaller-node electronics.
Earlier this year Aledia announced that it plans to establish a 140 million euros LED production fab in Champagnier, near Grenoble in France. The company already raised 80 million Euros towards that goal. The new fab will use Veeco's 300 mm MOCVD systems.
Veeco announced that France-based 3D GaN LED developer Aledia has selected the company's Propel 300mm HVM MOCVD system for its microLED production plant. Veeco says that the Propel system, featuring a SEMI-compliant Equipment Front End Module (EFEM) with cassette-to-cassette automation, was chosen due to its highest productivity with the lowest defectivity compared to alternatives.
Last month Aledia announced that it plans to establish a 140 million euros LED production fab in Champagnier, near Grenoble in France. The company already raised 80 million Euros and its great to see the company already ordering production equipment.
Last month France-based 3D GaN LED developer Aledia announced that it plans to establish a 140 million euros LED production fab in Champagnier, near Grenoble in France. Today the company announced that it closed â¬80 million in funding, out of the planned â¬120 million Series D investment round.
The lead investor in this round is the Investment Fund SociÃ©tÃ© de Projet Industriel (SPI), a fund managed by Bpifrance. SPI is joined by the majority of the existing strategic investors, including Intel Capital.
France-based 3D GaN LED developer Aledia announced that it plans to establish a 140 million euros LED production fab in Champagnier, near Grenoble in France. The plan is to start LED production by 2022 - and by the company will also finalize its microdisplay production process and will start offering microLED microdisplays.
Aledia developed a microLED production process, based on a unique 3D architecture using GaN-on-silicon nanowires (branded as WireLED).
In July 2018, France-based 3D GaN LED developer Aledia announced that it has selected Veeco Instrumentsâs Propel GaN MOCVD system to support its advanced R&D. Veeco's Propel system enables Aledia to process 6- and 8-inch wafers or 2- to 4-inch wafers in a minibatch mode. Aledia also uses Veeco's R&D K465i MOCVD system.
Aledia and Veeco now announced that Aledia "expands its portfolio of Veeco equipment to develop and produce 3D micro-LEDs". It is not clear what kind of equipment Aledia ordered - and it also seems that the two companies are collaborating to develop next-generation Micro-LED production equipment.
France-based 3D GaN LED developer Aledia has selected Veeco Instrumentsâ€™s Propel GaN metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system to support its advanced R&D. Aledia aims to scale up its technology for large-area silicon using Veeco's system.
Veeco's Propel system will enable Aledia to process 6- and 8-in. wafers or 2- to 4-in. wafers in a minibatch mode. Aledia already uses Veeco's K465i MOCVD system.
France-based 3D GaN LED developer Aledia announced its Series-C Financing round, totaling $36 million. Its existing investors participated in this round, and Aledia also announced that Intel Capital has joined as a new investor.
Aledia also says that it is developing next-generation Micro-LED displays with several large industrial partners. Aledia is developing both mobile displays (for smartphones, tablets, etc) and micro displays for AR/VR applications.
