Belgium-based microLED microdisplay developer MICLEDI launched microLED microdisplays with integrated micro-lenses, which it says it is a first for the display industry.
MICLEDI has already produces samples and test kits of blue microLED arrays, in addition to blue and green microLED arrays, and has shipped samples to potential customers. The company says that red microLED arrays will arrive in Q4 2022. The microLED arrays were produced in the company’s proprietary 300 mm manufacturing flow.
The micro-lenses arrays enables improves power efficiency, as light is focused within the targeted waveguide cone. It also offers optimal waveguide in-coupling and can enable pixel scaling to sub-3.0-micron pitch.
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 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.
