Taiwan's ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute) is a national research organization, with a mission of conducting technological research, promoting industrial development, creating economic value and improving social welfare for Taiwan. ITRI, founded in 1973, is the largest applied technology R&D institution in Taiwan.
ITRI is collaborating with several companies in Taiwan, including PlayNitride, to develop large-area indoor Micro-LED displays with plans to start production by the end of 2018.

The latest ITRI MicroLED news:
The MicroLED Industry Association to host two topical technology webinars, focused on QDs and ITRI
The MicroLED Industry Association announced two new topical webinars, private events for association members. This is in addition to the upcoming Perovskite webinar and AR webinar.
The first webinar is focused on quantum dots (QD) technologies. In this webinar, we hope to learn more about the state-of-the-art QD and color conversion R&D, with a focus of course on applications in the microLED industry. The event will take place on March 6th, and here's the agenda:
- Prof. Dmitri V. Talapin: world-leading QD researcher from the University of Chicago, who will update on the latest QA research
- Nanosys: leading QD developer (speaker TBD)
- GE: "Phosphor converted miniLEDs and microLEDs based displays" (MicroLED Association member)
- QustomDot: "InP-based quantum dots for color conversion in microLED applications" (MicroLED Association member)
AUO and ITRI developed and deployed a 17.3-inch transparent microLED AI display in a Taiwan Ferry
AUO, together with ITRI, developed a new 17.3" transparent microLED display, and deployed a few of these displays in a ferry operated by the Taiwan Kaohsiung Shipping Company. The Snoopy-featured Yawan Smart Ferry, will set sail for the first time on December 24, connecting Zhanerku, Cijin, and Gushan. The gesture-controlled AI smart window screen navigation system combines AR and eye tracking to show tourists information based on what they are looking at.
The LTPS microLED displays offer a 1820x720 resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The transmittance is 55% and the peak brightness is 3,000 nits
ITRI announces new microLED microdisplay technology for AR applications
Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), is introducing its latest microLED microdisplay technologies, and unveils its latest microdisplay prototype.
The 0.5" display offers full-color images (using blue LEDs and quantum-dots based color conversion), high resolution (over 2,000 PPI) and high brightness (over 20,000 nits). The display offers high power efficiency - ITRI says it consumes less than half the energy of current solutions (likely compared to OLED microdisplays).
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.
ITRI demonstrates a 16.7" tiled microLED display produced directly on PCB backplanes
Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) demonstrated a 16.7" microLED display "module" that was produced by directly mass transferring micro-LED chips onto a PCB backplane.
ITRI developed its own mass transfer tech, and uses microLEDs provided by PlayNitride, PCB backplanes provided by Unimicron and drivers and assembly by Macroblock. The 16.7" display is made by tiling 15 modules 6x10 cm each (45,000 LEDs). The microLEDs are
Digitimes: EOSRL achieved a breakthrough in its micro-LED transfer process
In November 2017 we reported that Taiwan's Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories (EOSRL, part of ITRI) has launched a project that brings together PlayNitride, LED driver IC designer Macroblock and PCB maker Unimicron with an aim to develop production technologies for high-density Micro-LED displays.
Digitimes today reports that EOSRL has achieved a breakthrough in its mass transfer technology, and is now able to transfer 10,000 micro-LED chips from an sapphire-based epitaxial wafer onto a substrate within an hour. EOSRL demonstrated the process with PCB, Polyimide and glass substrates. Trial production runs will commence in Q4 2019.
OIPT to supply several etch and deposition systems to support ITRI's micro-LED R&D program
UK-based plasma etch and deposition processing system maker Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OIPT) announced that it has sold several PlasmaPro 100 systems, including both etch and deposition systems, to ITRI for its micro-LED R&D program.
Taiwan's ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute) is reportedly developing Micro-LED technologies for both small-size (microdisplays) and large-size (130-inch and larger) applications.
ITRI is developing new Micro-LED displays for small-size and large-size applications
Digitimes reports that Taiwan's ITRI institute is developing new micro LED displays for both small-size and large-size application.
For small-size displays, ITRI is developing a 0.55-inch micro-LED microdisplays (on-silicon). This display is aimed for AR or VR devices. For this display ITRI uses 10-micron LEDs. For larger-sized application, ITRI is focused on displays over 130-inch in size. For such displays ITRI adopts 50-100 micron LEDs on PCB substrates.
Taiwan's ITRI to build a pilot line for micro-LED VR displays by Q3 2018
Earlier this month we reported that Taiwan's Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories (EOSRL, part of ITRI) has launched a project that aims to develop Micro-LED displays for large-area signage indoor displays.
LGD VR prototype, March 2017
According to a new report from Taiwan, EOSRL's new line, which will begin operation in Q3 2018, will be also used to produce small displays for VR applications. EOSRL reveals that the pilot line is already able to handle 2500 (50x50) chips per transfer, and by the time it is ready it will be able to handle 100,000 chips (100x100).
Taiwan's EOSRL aims to start large-area Micro-LED display production by the end of 2018
Digitimes reports that Taiwan's Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories (EOSRL, part of ITRI) has launched a project that brings together PlayNitride, LED driver IC designer Macroblock and PCB maker Unimicron. The project aims to develop high-density Micro-LED displays.
EOSRL plans to demonstrate first large-size signage display prototypes in H1 2018 with trial production to begin by the end of 2018.
