Foxconn and Porotech to co-develop microLED microdisplays

Foxconn announced a strategic partnership with Porotech to co-develop microLED microdisplays, targeting AR, wearable and other applications.

Foxconn says that this partnership will utilize Porotech's Dynamic Pixel Tuning color-tunable GaN-on-Silicon microLED technology and Foxconn's technologies in semiconductor wafer manufacturing, packaging, IC drivers, CMOS backplanes, module assembly and system assembly.


In 2022, Porotech demonstrated a full-color native microLED microdisplay prototype, the first of its kind, based on its color-tunable pixel technology. 

Foxconn has been interested in microLED microdisplay technologies for many years. In 2020 it was reported that Foxconn is developing its own AR glasses, which will be based on microLED microdisplays developed in collaboration with ITRI's EOSRL. The glasses were supposed to be released in 2022, but that did not happen. In 2023, Foxconn announced that it has developed a new microLED microdisplay, in collaboration with Ennostar and Unikorn Semiconductor (a part of Ennostar).
