Sanan to start producing microLEDs on 6" wafers by the end of 2019

According to a new report, China's LED producer Sanan Optoelectronics developed 10x20 micron LED devices (micro-LEDs) and is offering sample chips and testing data for microLED display makers. San'an aims to start producing these micro-LED chips on 6" wafers in Q4 2019.

Most microLED displays use chips produced on 4" wafers, and the move to 6" will enable lower production costs.

In April 2019 Sanan announced that it has signed a contract with the Gedian Economic and Technological Development Zone in China's Hubei Province to setup a $1.78 billion Mini-LED and Micro-LED production site.
