QustomDot and MICLEDI announced a joint development program to develop color microLED microdisplays using QustomDot's color conversion technology. The companies will demonstrate a microdisplay that offers a new architecture tailored for high-efficiency color conversion using stable RoHS-compliant QD materials. The displays will be produced using a high-throughput QD transfer and patterning techniques on micron-sized pixels.
QustomDot developed a patented method to produce high-quality and stable QD materials suitable for microLEDs. MICLEDI is producing its microdisplays on 300 mm wafers, and the company developed a new pixel architecture that has been optimized for high-aperture (>60% aperture at a 3μm pixel pitch) which the company says is a key requisite to achieve a high brightness with quantum dots.
The JV project is supported by Flanders Innovation and Entrepreneurship (VLAIO).
In March 2022, MICLEDI announced that it will partner with GlobalFoundries in a manufacturing collaboration to develop microdisplays. In December 2021 MICLEDI demonstrated what it says is the industry's first microLED arrays-for-AR built on a 300mm CMOS manufacturing platform. In 2021 MICLEDI raised 7.1 million Euro. Following its 2020 financing round we talked with the company's CEO who explains the company's technology and goals.
