Shin-Etsu Chemical is Japan's largest chemical maker, and one of the leading chemical makers in the world. The company's leading the market for polyvinyl chloride, semiconductor silicon and photomask substrates.
Taiwan-based Ultra Display Technology developed a microLED mass transfer solution based on customized flat mass-transfer stamps.
The company's product is the stamp with the LEDs already in place, for microLED display makers to directly deploy on their display substrates
Austria-based FAMETEC, a member of the EBNER Group of companies, produces wafers grown using a McSap (multi net shape c-axis Sapphire boules) process. The company produces high-end 6", 8" and 12" epi-ready sapphire wafers.
FAMETEC produces wafers specifically for microLED growth,and is shipping wafers to a tier-1 Asian microLED developer.
TLi (Technology Leaders & Innovators) is a Korea-based developer of display drivers, for LCDs, OLEDs and microLED displays. The company's products includes timing controller, driver ICs and ROIC.
TLi developed a microLED driver IC with Common Anode and Common Cathode, and aims to start sampling its first product by the end of 2021.
US-based Amorphyx develops amorphous-metals based display backplanes, which can be used to drive displays using quantum-tunneling. The company says that such backplanes will enable extremely fast conductivity and thus "unlimited" refresh rates.
Amorphyx's AMNR-based backplane are compatible with LCDs, OLEDs, microLED and e-paper displays.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research (IAP) develops bio-based and synthetic polymers, from the laboratory to the industrial scale. Applications are diverse across many markets, such as bio-based packaging, lightweight materials, truck tires and more.
The Fraunhofer IAP is active in the display industry, with its IAP functional polymer systems division looking into a broad range of materials, including light-emitting polymers and quantum dots. The focus lies in solution processing of these materials with a strong focus on printing methods.
Founded in 2017 as a spin-off from the university of Turku, Finland, Comptek Solutions is develops quantum technology (branded as Kontrox) that boosts the performance of devices such as microLEDs and lasers and makes their manufacturing process easier by solving the problem of aggressive oxidation of compound semiconductor materials.
Kontrox results in a high-quality passivation layer with substantially reduced defect densities that help to greatly decrease the surface recombination phenomena which is a predominant mechanism for such small devices.
