Canada-based VueReal is a startup company that develops Micro-LED display technologies. VueReal developed a cartridge-based microLED printing process that can produce high density displays at high production yields.
In 2017 VueReal demonstrated a 4K micro-LED microdisplay that achieves the world's highest density for an emissive display at 6,000 PPI, and in 2019 the company said it developed a 30,000 PPI MicroLED microdisplay.
In 2018 VueReal raised $10.5 million in its series-A funding round to construct an advanced nano technology fabrication center in Waterloo, Canada. We posted an interview with the company's CEO and Founder in early 2020.
The latest Vuereal MicroLED news:
MicroLED developer VueReal announced that it has raised $14.4 million in its latest (series B) funding round, led by Cycle Capital VC and joined by TDK, Vitro, Economic Development Canada and BDC Capital. VueReal says it will use the funds to enhance its production facility, expand the team, and gain new customers.
VueReal says that the new financing round will also enable it to offer a broader range of custom display products, for AR, smartwatches, smartphones, automotive, signage and transparent displays. Last year VueReal demonstrated high-brightness and high-transmittance transparent microLED displays which it is now offering to customers.
VueReal announced that it has received volume orders for its transparent displays from automotive and aerospace customers. The company is producing custom displays at its pilot production line in Canada.
Back in June VueReal demonstrated its first 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%). Vuereal says that its microLED cartridge- and printing- based production process enables the production of custom displays with high yield and high throughput.
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).
Vuereal announces a partnership with ASMPT to integrate the company's transfer and bonding solutions
Canada-based microLED technology developer VueReal announced a partnership with ASM Pacific Technologies (ASMPT) to integrate VueReal's cartridge microLED mass transfer solution into ASMPT's mass transfer bonding solution for microLED display applications.
Vuereal says that this new partnership will allow its customers to achieve 99.99+% transfer yields on LED's smaller than 10 micrometers.
VueReal announced that its patented flipchip structure demonstrated higher yields and lower costs compared to standard vertical LED process.
The company says that flipchip processes are favored by display makers, due to the easy integration they offer. Most processes, however suffer from low yields and a complex process. VueReal's process has achieved yields higher than 99.9%, and with a more automated fabrication line can even achieve higher yields.
Canada-based VueReal is a startup company that develop Micro-LED based microdisplays. The company's Continuous Pixelation micro-printing technology offers high density displays, high production yields and a simple design.
VueReal's founder and CEO, Reza Chaji, was kind enough to answer a few questions we had on the company's technology and business.
Reza, thank you for your time. Can you explain VueReal's micro-printing process and technology?
VueReal’s solution is a true printing process where you do not need to pick LEDs for each transfer. It is based on a cartridge design by VueReal that releases the LEDs selectively into the substrate.
Micro-LED microdisplay developer VueReal will start accepting orders for its first micro-LED display samples by June 2019. The company says that its patented self-aligned technology resulted in a robust and high yield microdisplay production process.
VueReal says that it developed Micro-LED microdisplays that achieve a brightness of 100,000 nits and a density of over 30,000 PPI - breaking its own world record of 6,600 PPI set in 2017.
In October 2018 VueReal announced that it has raised $8.5 million and that it will build an advanced nano technology fabrication center in Waterloo, Canada - which will include an integrated pilot production system that will use the company's proprietary sub-10 micrometer, high-efficiency, solid printing process at commercial volumes.
Micro-LED microdisplay developer VueReal announced that it has raised $8.5 million from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) that will be used to further develop its technology. VueReal will also build an advanced nano technology fabrication center in Waterloo, Canada, in partnership with Angstrom - a Canadian-based PVD and CVD equipment maker.
VueReal says that its next step is to build an integrated pilot production system that will use the company's proprietary sub-10 micrometer, high-efficiency, Solid Printing process at commercial volumes. The company will also work to enhance the performance of its Micro-LED microdisplays.
