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:
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.
Shanghai-based Micro-LED microdisplay developer JBD unveiled two new Micro-LED microdisplay prototypes. First up is the JBD5UM720P-G, a 0.31" 720p (1780x720, 5,000 PPI) display that features a typical brightness of 3 million nits (!). This is a monochrome green (530 nm) display.
The second display, the JBD25UMFHD-B is a higher density display, at 10,000 PPI it achieves a 2560x1440 resolution in the same 0.31" size. This is a monochrome blue (455 nm) display that has a brightness of 150,000 nits. The display's refresh rate is 360Hz.
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.
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.
Shanghai-based JBD is developing micro-LED based Microdisplays for near-eye and image projection applications, using the company's proprietary hybrid monolithic integration technology. JBD received a $10 million investment and developed a 5,000 PPI micro-LED array, with plans to reach 10,000 PPI.
JBD is already offering VGA monochrome (red, green and blue) micro-LED microdisplays. LEDs Inside posted an interesting interview with JBD's CEO and CTO that discuss the company's technology and its goal for 2018 and 2019.
