JBD (Jade Bird Display), established in 2015 in Shanghai, China, develops micro-LED based MicroDisplays for near-eye and image projection applications based on its proprietary hybrid monolithic integration technology.
In July 2017 the company demonstrated a 5000 PPI active-matrix group III-V microLED array on Si ICs. In 2019 JBD unveiled more prototypes, including a 2 million nits display and a 10,000 PPI display.
JBD currently offers VGA (640x480) monochrome (red, green and blue) micro-LED microdisplays.

The latest JBD MicroLED news:
The LAWK ONE is an AR headset based on dual microLED microdisplays, aimed towards outdoor 'adventure' use, that has launched a successful crowdfunding campaign. The HMD is set to start shipping in December 2023, with a launch price of $349.
The microdisplays are JBD's 0.13" VGA green monochrome microLEDs. LAWK ONE says that the displays offer up to 1,150 nits of brightness and a 30-degrees FOV.
China-based MicroLED microdisplay developer Jade Bird Display have started shipping engineering samples of single-panel RGB microLED microdisplays. The company brands these new microdisplays as the Phoenix series, while its monochrome panels are now branded as Hummingbird. The Phoenix series is designed to be used with 50+ degree FOV waveguides.
JBD's first Phoenix samples are 0.22" panels, with a 2K resolution (2.5 um pixel pitch). The three LEDs (RGB) are all AlInGaN emitters, and are vertically stacked. JBD says that its plans for a standard product include a 0.3-inch panel with 4K resolution (2 um sub-pixel pitch. The company expects to begin full mass production in 2025.
According to reports from China, MicroLED microdisplay developer Jade Bird Display has successfully raised its A4 strategic financing round. It is reported that together with the A3 round which closed last year, the company raised "hundreds of millions of Yuan" (which could mean anything from $30 million USD to $130 million).
JBD's investors include Alibaba, Samsung, BYD and Geely. BYD is said to be working with JBD to develop MicroLED automotive applications.
In June 2022 it was reported that JBD is building a $92 million USD display production line in Hefei. JBD now says that its production line has commenced operation, and is producing microLED microdisplays.
According to reports, the production line will have an annual capacity of around 120 million panels (likely JBD's 0.13" monochrome variant).
SID Display Week is the display industry's premier display show and this year's event, which will take place on May 21-26, should be an excellent one.
Display Week covers all aspects of the display industry and the whole spectrum of display technologies. MicroLEDs are seen by many to be the next generation display technology, and there will indeed be an increased focus on microLED technologies and displays at the upcoming Display Week.
The European Electronics Display Conference (edC), which takes place next week at Nuremberg, Germany, is a leading display conference, which takes part as part of the embedded world event. The conference focuses on industrial and automotive displays, and includes two days of keynote speeches and sessions.
MicroLEDs are featured at the conference, as the organizers realize the importance of the next-generation display technology. We had a short talk with the conference charimen Prof. Dr. Karlheinz Blankenbach from Pforzheim University's Display Lab.
Q: Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Dr. Karlheinz. Can you tell us a bit about the Electronic Display Europe Conference?
China-based MicroLED microdisplay developer Jade Bird Display announced that it has developed a higher-efficiency AlGaInP-based (native) red microLED, that achieves a brightness of 750,000 nits, an increase of 50% compared to its currently-used emitter. The company says that this it the industry's brightest native red emitter.
JBD says that it managed to redistribute the local charge carriers by a breakthrough in surface treatment process and in this way, minimize the surface non-radiative recombination and boost the efficiency. The company says it expects to implement this technology in mass production by middle of 2023.
Market analysts from Omdia say that the XR market (which they define as a combination of AR, VR and MR) will grow from 24 million units in 2023 to almost 90 million units in 2028, a CAGR of 67%. In terms of revenues, the market (XR displays) will reach $1.15 billion in 2023.
Looking at 2022, Omdia's Senior display analyst, Kimi Lin, says that for the AR market the leading technology is OLED microdisplays, with a market share of 70% and shipments of 670,000 units. Omdia says that 30,900 MicroLED displays were shipped (these are all JBD's 0.13" VGA ones, as this is the only commercial microLED). In addition - Laser-beam systems (188,700 shipments), LCoS (69,300) and DLP (3,200).

China-based MicroLED microdisplay developer Jade Bird Display secured its Series A3 financing round, co-led by Eight Roads and Lightspeed China Ventures. JBD raised "several hundred million Yuan", which could mean anything from $30 million USD to $130 million.
In June 2022 it was reported that JBD is building a $92 million USD display production line in Hefei. The production line will have an annual capacity of around 120 million panels (likely JBD's 0.13" monochrome variant). JBD recently announced that it has developed a new red microLED emitter, that offers up to 500,000 nits of brightness at 2 micron sizes, and also that the company is developing native full-color microLED microdisplays.
