MICLEDI to develop red microLED AR displays in collaboration with IQE

Belgium-based microLED microdisplay developer MICLEDI announced a partnership with IQE, a supplier of compound semiconductor wafer products and advanced material solutions to the global semiconductor industry, to develop microLEDs for AR products.

Under this agreement, IQE will provide MICLEDI with a 200mm (8-inch) platform to scale and commercialise its technology to achieve high-volume production for red microLEDs. This geometry allows for compatibility with both standard 200 mm and 300mm silicon foundries, which enables the partnership to deliver economies of scale.

In March 2022, MICLEDI announced that it will partner with GlobalFoundries in a manufacturing collaboration to develop microdisplays. MICLEDI's solution will be combined with GlobalFoundries'€™ 22FDX platform to enable MICLEDI to mass produce microLED arrays.

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 August 2022 the company announced a partnership with MicroLED Industry Association member QustomDot to develop full-color microLED microdisplays with QD color conversion. Later this month the company also launched microLED microdisplays with integrated micro-lenses, which it says it is a first for the display industry.

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.
