LED developer Lextar and microLED display developer X Display Company (XDC) announced that the two companies entered into a development, licensing and services agreements. Lextar licensed XDC's IP and Lextar will supply its high-performance microLED chips to XDC's customers.
Lextar says that this agreement will accelerate the commercialization of next-generation microLED displays, and its customers can now benefit from a one-stop service, from microLED chips to display modules.
XDC's IP portfolio includes over 400 patents, mostly in the area of elastomer stamp mass-transfer technology. In early 2020 XDC finalized its Series A investment round, led by Daktronics.
In 2018 Lextar introduced its first micro-LED chips - both RGB ones and color conversion ones, both suitable for mass transfer processes. In 2020 Lextar announced a merger with fellow Taiwanese LED maker Epistar.
