MicroLED technology is a next-generation emissive display technology that promises highly efficient and bright displays that offer superior image quality with infinite contrast and a wide color gamut. MicroLEDs are an excellent fit for microdisplays - as it can offer extremely bright and efficient displays with very fine pixel pitches.

Microdisplays are very small displays (usually under 1-inch) used in near-eye applications such as AR glasses, camera view finders and rifle sights. Most microdisplays on the market are either LCoS or OLED displays.

MicroLED Microdisplays

Many companies are developing high-end MicroLED microdisplays, and some of these are already offering initial products on the market. Some examples of such companies include Plessey (owned by Facebook), Jade Bird Display and Lumiode. MicroLED microdisplays are not in mass production, although some companies are already sampling simple monochrome displays.

Microdisplays use a high-end silicon backplane, and microLED microdisplays can be produced using a monolithic process - which means that the LEDs can be fabricated directly on the silicon wafer, or transferred to it in a process that is simpler compared to a TFT-glass transfer process.

The latest MicroLED Microdisplays news:

Vuzix teams up with Atomistic for microLED microdisplay technologies

Smart glasses developer Vuzix announced it has signed a series of agreement with Atomistic, that will give Vuzix an exclusive license of Atomistic's microLED microdisplay technology, that will have Atomistic design a custom backplane for Vuzix - and dependent upon achievement of various technical stages, the ability of Vuzix to acquire the company.

Atomistic has developed a novel approach to develop microLED microdisplays based on its material platform, which enables red, green and blue microLEDs based on the a single epitaxial structure. The team will develop microLED backplanes on 300 mm wafers.
