Vuereal demonstrates a transparent microLED display, to start pilot production soon

Canada-based microLED technology developer VueReal demonstrated a new transparent microLED display. The display is between 3 and 4 inches in size, with high brightness (over 3,000 nits) and very high transparency (85%).

The display in the video is produced on glass, but VueReal can also produce displays on flexible substrates. The company did not disclose the display's resolution (or whether this is a segmented display).

Royole shows a stretchable transparent microLED display prototype

China-based display maker Royole introduced a stretchable and transparent microLED display prototype at SID Displayweek 2021. The company says that this display, the first of its kind, is compatible with existing industrial manufacturing processes.

The prototype panel is a 2.7-inch 96x60 display (120 PPI) . It can stretch by up to 130% and bend up to 40 degrees. It is quite transparent, too - with a transmittance of 70%.

Tianma demonstrated new microLED technologies at SID Displayweek 2021

Tianma demonstrated several new microLED display prototypes at SID Displayweek 2021. First up is a 7.56" 720x480 (114 PPI) flexible MicroLED display, developed in collaboration with PlayNitride. The display is driven by an LTPS backplane and achieves a brightness of over 600 nits. The bending radius is 50 mm.

The second display is a tiled display that combines two 5.04" 480x320 (114 PPI) LTPS microLED displays. This one was develop again in collaboration with PlayNitride. The border (bezel) of the panel is less than 0.03 mm - although looking carefully at the display you can see a black line separating the two panels.

AU Optronics shows its microLED display prototypes at SID Displayweek 2021

AUO Optronics is showing its latest microLED ALED display prototypes at SID DisplayWeek 2021. Most of these aren't new display (AUO already demonstrated these last month) but it's the first time we got these on video:

You can see the 1.39" 472x472 (338 PPI) full-circle microLED display, developed together with PlayNitride. You can also see AUO's 12.1-inch 169PPI microLED display it first demonstrated in SID 2020, and the 9.4-inch 228 PIP flexible microLED prototype it also developed together with PlayNitride.

Here are more details on Lextar's 10.6-inch transparent microLED display prototype

Last week we reported that Ennostar Incorporation (formed by a merger of Taiwan's Epistar and Lextar in 2020) demonstrated a 10.6" transparent microLED display at Touch Taiwan 2021. We now have more information on Lextar's new display prototype.

This square display features a 640x640 resolution (85 PPI) and uses LED chips that are <50 um in size. This is a TFT-based display (LTPS? we're not sure) that achieves a transparency of 61%, a brightness of 3,000 nits (peak value) and a 120Hz refresh rate.

STRATACACHE to build the first MicroLED production line in the US, mass production expected by 2023

Global digital signage solution provider STRATACACHE is embarking on a project to construct a microLED display production line in Eugene, Oregon. The company aims to start production in this fab at around 2022-2023, with plans to adopt these microLED displays in its own solutions.

The new factory (E4) will be a complete microLED production line, from epiwafer (on 300 mm silicon wafers), through transfer process and to final module assembly. The company plans to produce a wide range of displays, from tablet-sized panels to large-area displays. Some of these displays will be flexible and transparent as the company sees a market demand for such technologies. The yearly capacity of the E4 is expected to start at a 1 million square meters per year.
