IQE announces 200mm RGB epitaxy for MicroLEDs
Differentiated microLED wafer products will provide faster-time-to-market for display-level qualification
Compound semiconductor wafer firm IQE has announced the launch of a new portfolio of 200mm (8 inch) Red, Green and Blue epitaxial wafer products for microLED display qualification.
IQE says its GaN and GaAs epitaxy is critical in enabling faster adoption of microLEDs. Moreover, the launch of differentiated microLED wafer products will provide its customers with faster-time-to-market options for display-level qualification.
With multi-wavelength solutions available at wafer diameters including new options at 200mm, IQE is now delivering qualified foundry capacity from multi-continent operations, which is provides customers with epitaxy supply chain diversification. The company also plans to scale the technology roadmap from 200mm to 300mm (12 inch).
Mark J. Furlong, executive VP of Business Development of IQE commented: “We are pleased to offer our customers the industry’s broadest range of materials technology platforms for microLED display qualification. We recognise that IQE can play a critical role in accelerating the deployment of microLEDs across many end applications and the launch of this new portfolio is in line with our strategy to diversify into GaN technologies, in the high-growth display market.”
