US-based Rohinni, established in 2013, focuses on micro-LED technologies for lighting and displays.
Rohinni developed several Micro-LED technologies, including Lumus, a robot that can pick and place LEDs and the PiXey process which is based on Lumos enabled high-speed precise placement of micro LEDs. One of the first applications Rohinni targets is backlighting for keyboards, but the company is also interested in micro-LED displays.
In August 2018 Rohinni announced a JV with Magna Electronics to bring mini-LED and micro-LED lighting devices to the automotive market. In 2019 Rohinni announced a new joint venture with China-based display maker BOE to develop LCD mini-LED and micro-LED backlighting units. The JV with BOE is called BOE Pixey.
The latest Rohinni MicroLED news:
Rohinni demonstrated its latest technology and prototypes at CES 2020, and this interesting video shows the company's booth and provides an interview with the company's CEO.
On display you can see some flexible lighting prototypes, an LCD display backlighting unit that uses mini LEDs, automotive solutions developed by the Rohinni and Magma JV, keyboard backlights from its Luumii JV and finally some microLED display prototypes made by the BOE Pixey JV.
Rohinni and BOE launch a micro-LED JV called BOE Pixey, first products to reach the market by the end of 2020
In early 2019 Rohinni announced a collaboration with China-based display maker BOE, and now the companies announced that they are launching the JV as a separate company called BOE Pixey, which will design and build micro-LED based LCD display backlights and direct-emission displays - focusing on large-area displays (32-inch and up).
BOE Pixel will also develop related sensors for large-format displays. BOE Pixey integrates Rohinni's mini-LED and micro-LED manufacturing process with BOE's display panel production experience and leadership. The company says that first products that utilize its displays will reach the market in the second half of 2020.
Luumii starts to mass produce its mini-LED and micro-LED laptop keyboard lighting and logo lighting solutions
Luumii, a joint-venture between Micro-LED developer Rohinni and Koja, announced that it has started to mass produce its micro-LED and mini-LED based notebook computer keyboard backlights and logo lighting solutions.
Luumii says that its solutions are more compact and offer a higher power efficiency compared to current solutions, and may also enhance product features and user experience as it offers colored lighting and animations. Luumii's current capacity is 34,000 units per month, and by the end of 2019 it will increase the capacity to 100,000 monthly units.
US-based Rohinni announced that it has received initial orders for its Pixalux mini-LED and micro-LED placement solution. The company expects to ship more systems in the current quarter, and anticipates higher-volume market adoption in 2020.
Rohinni says that its system combines higher throughput and accuracy for small-die applications to provide a compelling and highly-competitive solution.
US-based Rohinni announced a new joint venture with China-based display maker BOE. The new JV (which will be based in China and controlled by BOE) will develop LCD mini-LED and micro-LED backlighting units.
The JV will adopt Rohinni's proprietary high-speed MicroLED placement technology that is capable of placing 50 die-per-second (dps) with 10 micron accuracy at 99.999% die yields. BOE and Rohinni will initially focus on large panel applications (32-inch and up) for consumer electronic products in addition to all display sizes for industrial, automotive and other markets
Rohinni and Magna Electronics announce a new JV to develop flexible Micro-LED lighting panels for automotive applications
US-based Rohinni announced a new joint-venture with Magna Electronics to develop flexible mini-LED and micro-LED based lighting devices for the automotive market.
The new JV, controlled by Magna Electronics will be called Magna Rohinni Automotive Electronics and will be based in Holly, Michagan, US. In addition to the JV, Magna also made a minority equity investment in Rohinni.
