JBD logoJBD (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.

Vuzix launches its microLED display engines using JBD microdisplays

Vuzix have officially launched its microLED display engines, based on three JBD monochrome microLED microdisplays.

Vuzix says that samples of the new engines are now available upon request. These are monochrome devices, and one would have to use three (red, green, and blue) for a full color display. Vuzix is developing full-color and higher-resolution (HD) engines. Vuzix says that its next-generation smart glasses will adopt these devices which are now on offer to customers.

Vuzix announces it is using JBD's microLED displays, teases its upcoming microLED AR glasses

Last year, smart glasses developer Vuzix announced that it will release its first microLED microdisplay powered AR glasses in 2021. The company today announced that it is using JBD's microdisplays, and has published the video you see below which shows the new glasses.

Vuzix revealed that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with JBD (Jade Bird Display) to collaborate on the co-development and cross-supply of solutions incorporating microLED display engines and Vuzix waveguides. Under the agreement, JBD will provide microLED displays and Vuzix will provide newly developed proprietary waveguides and display engine optics to work with these displays.

MicroLED Microdisplays - quick market snapshot

This article is an extract from The MicroLED Handbook, 2020 edition, and gives a short introduction to the current market status of MicroLED Microdisplays. The handbook was published in January 2020 - there has been some updates since then, for example Plessey's recent soft-acquisition by Facebook and MICLEDI's technology was revealed.

There are several companies that develop microLED microdisplays, and these are gearing up to begin mass production of displays soon. It is likely that microdisplays will be the first type of commercial displays enabled by microLED technology.

JBD demonstrates 2-million nits and 10,000 PPI Micro-LED microdisplays

Shanghai-based Micro-LED microdisplay developer JBD unveiled its latest Micro-LED microdisplay prototypes. JBD's panels can achieve a high brightness of 2 million nits coupled with very high pixel density (5,000 PPI) on a monochrome green display.

JBD also demonstrated an even high pixel density display (10,000 PPI). JBD can currently produce either monochrome or dual-color (red and green) microdisplays, and is developing full-color ones.

JBD unveils a 1 million nits MicroLED microdisplay

Shanghai-based Micro-LED microdisplay developer JBD demonstrated its latest Microdisplay that achieve an extremely high brightness - 1 million nits. The display resolution is VGA. JBD is already offering its monochrome VGA micro-LED microdisplays commercially (but we're not sure if these are the 1 million nits ones).

JBD's current micro-LED process still suffers from low yields, but the company hopes to achieve at least a 70% yield in the future, which will enable it to bring prices down to about $10 to $20 per display.
