Company type:  

Pototech logoPorotech was spun-off the University of Cambridge, to commercialize a porous GaN material platform technology using a unique production method. The company mainly targets the microLED industry, and it has developed a color-tunable LED technology.

In 2020, Porotech secured a £1.5 million seed round investment. In November 2020, the company announced what it says is the first commercial native red LED epiwafer for micro-LED applications. In June 2020 the company raised £3 million.


In 2021, Porotech announced a partnership with JBD for the supply of porous gallium nitride (GaN) epiwafers. In February 2022 Porotech raised $20 million in its Series A financing round. In May 2022 the company announced its color tunable LED DynamicPixelTuning technology. In December 2023 the company announced a partnership with Foxconn to develop microLED microdisplays.

Porotech demonstrate a full color native GaN microled microdisplay

Porous-GaN material platform developer Porotech has demonstrated a full-color microLED microdisplay, made from the company's GaN LEDs. The company says that this is the world's first public demonstration of such a display.

The display is made using the company's DynamicPixelTuning technology, that makes it possible to create full-color or tunable-color monochrome displays using identical pixels from a single wafer. The company's PoroGaN material allows a modulated current to be leveraged to emit visible light covering the entire color spectrum on a single microLED chip.

Porotech raises $20 million to bring its native red InGaN LED technology to market

Porous-GaN material platform developer Porotech announced that it has raised $20 million in its Series A investment funding round. The new funds Will help Porotech mass produce its microLED products,and expand its global reach. The round has been led by Ameba Capital and includes a "multinational electronics giant".

In 2021 Porotech announced it has created the world's first microLED microdisplay based on a native red InGaN LED. The microdisplay was a 0.55" diagonal panel with a resolution of 960x540 Porotech says that its native InGaN red LEDs will offer higher efficiency than currently-used AlInGaP red LEDs. Developing an RGB microdisplay all from InGaN chips will also offer easier driving and process design.
