ClassOne ships Solstice tool to microLED startup Raxium
Solstice plating system to help ramp high-volume production of ultra-bright microDisplays
ClassOne Technology, a provider of advanced electroplating and wet processing tools for microelectronics manufacturing, has announced it has shipped a Solstice S4 single-wafer plating system to prominent microLED startup Raxium for development and manufacture of microLED displays.
Raxium’s innovative monolithic RGB microLED technology, specifically designed for applications such as augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) systems, has reportedly achieved performance efficiency more than five times greater than the previously published world record.
MicroLEDs are made from compound semiconductors and require many thousands of sub-100-micron devices for each end product. This material/quantity combination heightens the need to maximise device yields and performance by leveraging the high plating rates and throughput of the best-in-class Solstice platform.
“Raxium is at the forefront of microLED development,” said ClassOne CEO Byron Exarcos. “We view their advanced display technology as instrumental to delivering the highest quality next-generation AR/VR devices, and we look forward to collaborating with them to help drive the next phase of their product development.”
“ClassOne shares Raxium’s passion for pushing the boundaries of science and technology to create solutions that transform how we interact with the world around us,” said Craig Peters, CEO of Raxium. “Their Solstice plating system will play an important role as we drive toward high-volume production ramp of our ultra-bright, ultra-high-performance microDisplays.
