Sanan Opto shows latest LED tech at CES 2019
Display manufacturers to unveil latest products based on Mini and Micro LEDs
Sanan Optoelectronics, a Chinese LED epitaxial wafer and chip manufacturer, has announced that several panel manufacturers for TVs, digital displays, smartphones, smart watches, augmented / virtual reality (AR/VR) goggles, and gaming notebooks have unveiled new products this week using the company’s latest Mini LED and advanced Micro LED chips at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Mini LEDs, with their compact unit size between 100 to 200µm, allow for high-density backlight designs with local dimming capabilities. The technology helps create ultra-thin, ultra-compact display designs with stylistic features such as for notch and curved form-factors, according to the company. It also provides superior energy efficiency with high brightness, high dynamic range (HDR), with higher colour saturation, contrast and resolution compared to LCDs.
Micro LED is poised to be the revolutionary next-generation technology, which offer significant advances in image quality through individually driven self-emitting pixels and in even more miniaturised form-factors.
“We see tremendous growth in the Mini LED market, and are delighted to see its increased adoption from among the product launches here at CES”, says Simon Lin, CEO of Sanan Optoelectronics.
“The industry is certainly taking full advantage of the key benefits that Mini LEDs bring, namely enhanced power savings, and higher performance. Given the success of our core business in LED chips combined with our manufacturing infrastructure and cost competitiveness through economies of scale, we have been able to overcome the high barrier of entry for the Mini LED market. While we are fully committed to drive innovation further for this technology and are well positioned to support the market’s high volume demand, we are also ramping up R&D and scaling up capacity for Micro LED production to meet the demands of the next wave of innovative LED displays”.
The company offers a family of RGB display and backlight Mini LEDs with various element sizes, dimensions, and light output power (LOP) ratings, ideal for these emerging applications and market trends, with high volume production capacity. Customised form-factors and solutions are also available. The company has also expanded its manufacturing capabilities and facilities for Micro LED production.
