In June 2018, UK-based GaN-on-Si MicroLED developer Plessey Semiconductor and AR developer Vuzix announced a partnership to develop advanced Micro-LED display engines for Vuzix waveguide optics to enable next generation AR Smart Glasses by 2019. Today Plessey announced it has entered into a long-term micro-LED supply agreement with Vuzix.

The new agreement will support the development and production of next-generation AR products that utilize Plessey's micro-LED light source. Vuzix say that the agreement includes an exclusive display device design.

A few days ago Plessey, together with Jasper Display, demonstrated the world's first GaN-on-Silicon monolithic full-HD (1920x1080) microLED bonded display, based on JDC's eSP70 silicon backplane technology.
