IQE announces partnership with MICLEDI
IQE will provide MICLEDI with a 200mm platform to achieve high-volume production for red microLEDs
IQE plc has entered into a partnership with MICLEDI Microdisplays focused on the large-scale commercialisation of microLED technology.
MICLEDI is a fabless semiconductor design and technology company developing high-performance microLED displays with a primary focus on augmented reality products.
Under this agreement, IQE will provide MICLEDI with a 200mm (8-inch) platform to scale and commercialise this technology to achieve high-volume production for red microLEDs. This geometry allows for compatibility with both standard 200mm and 300mm silicon foundries, which enables the partnership to deliver economies of scale.
“MicroLEDs are the future of immersive display technologies and this agreement expands IQE’s position in a market which is poised for multi-billion dollar growth across a range of end-market applications, including everyday consumer electronics. Compound semiconductors are a critical enabler of scale in this market and we are pleased to be partnering with MICLEDI to offer a differentiated solution,” said Americo Lemos, CEO of IQE (pictured above).
Sean Lord, CEO of MICLEDI, commented: “By combining MICLEDI’s unique microLED arrays with IQE’s innovative 8-inch platform, we have formed a natural partnership to commercialise and scale our solution to address the high-growth microLED market. Our augmented reality products will enable new user experiences and we look forward to delivering this innovative technology under our new partnership.”
