Micro-LED Micro-display, Game-changer of Future Visual Interface
Kei May Lau, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong
Widely regarded as the next-generation display technology, Micro-LED micro-display is the ideal candidate for various burgeoning applications, including but not limited to augmented reality (AR), head-up display (HUD), 3D printing and maskless lithography. Existing micro-display technology generally suffers from common limitations, such as low brightness, poor efficiency and robustness under extreme operation conditions.
However, Micro-LED technology has its own challenges before it hits the market. Micro-size-effects and relatively large emissive angle reduce the product’s overall efficiency. Size mismatch between sapphire substrate (4 inch) and IC (8 or 12 inch) obstructs further manufacturing cost reduction. Red, green and blue micro-LEDs integration in a single chip is another major challenge for full-color micro-display applications. After 10+ years of dedicated research, we discovered feasible solutions and is on-track to tackle these problems in our next generation product very soon.
Bypassing the massive transfer issue, our proprietary micro-LED micro-display technology is ready for mass-production providing customers with the utmost experiences through unrivaled color gamut, ultra-high efficiency and brightness (particularly under bright sunlight), superb robustness under extreme conditions, compared with other existing micro-display technology.
