Kopin and MICLEDI to collaborate on microLED displays


Companies to work on more immersive and information-rich AR systems for use in high-brightness light conditions

Optical systems firms Kopin Corporation and Imec spin-out MICLEDI Microdisplays have agreed to work together to design, develop, and manufacture microLED displays to provide a more immersive and information-rich AR experience for use in high-brightness light conditions.

The program will use MICLEDI’s CMOS production flow and Kopin’s backplane control and driving capabilities, along with its experience in manufacturing complete display systems, to create full colour microLED displays integrated with advanced CMOS technology for high-performance defence, enterprise, consumer, and medical systems.

“The demand for AR solutions, particularly for defence programs, has never been higher as users desire more immersive and information-rich experiences,” said Bill Maffucci, senior vice president for business development and strategy at Kopin. “MICLEDI’s microLED technology, combined with Kopin’s advanced backplane design capabilities, aims to create microLED displays that address the demanding needs of emerging applications without the deficiencies of current technologies.”

“We are pleased with Kopin’s adoption and co-development of our disruptive AR display technology in truly innovative system solutions,” said Sean Lord, CEO at MICLEDI. “To enable optimum microdisplays for AR, we believe MICLEDI has developed the world’s first solution for microLED manufacturing in a 300mm CMOS line, which allows integrating both controller ASIC and emitter module on a 300mm wafer in a highly efficient, high volume, and low-cost manufacturing flow.

"Unique solutions can be tailored to the particular requirements of each end-use system, making MICLEDI’s microLEDs manufactured in collaboration with Kopin’s backplane and system integration skills, applicable to a variety of specialised AR microdisplay systems.”
