to undertake in the traditional LCD (LCD), OLED, Micro LED is considered to subvert the industry’s next generation of display technology, and Sony in June 2016 came out Micro LED new work, the industry’s refreshing news, causing the
The market for the discussion of the micro LED boom, but also cover up the previous OLED on whether to replace the LCD sound, so that the market focus on the Micro LED once again came under the spotlight.
Micro LED why promising a new generation of display technology?
micro light-emitting diode display (Micro LED Display) for the next generation of display technology, the structure is miniaturized LED arrays, that is, thin film LED structure design, miniaturization
And the array, so that the size of the current mainstream LED size of 1%, each pixel can be addressed, a separate drive light, the distance from the original pixel to the micron level.
Features include low power consumption, high brightness, high resolution and color saturation, fast response, ultra-saving, long life, high efficiency, and its power consumption is about LCD
Of the 10%, 50% of the OLED.
And compared with the same self-luminous display OLED, the brightness than its 30 times higher, and the resolution of up to 1500PPI (pixel density), the equivalent of Apple Watch OLED panel to achieve 300PPI 5 times, in addition, with
Better material stability and no image mark is one of the advantages.
Apple and Sony first to the layout, targeting two extreme size applications
Micro LED in this field has not yet fully developed, Apple and Sony have already pre-empt flags, but the two companies on the Micro LED applications, respectively, in different
Of the consumer electronics level.
Apple LED Micro LED small size applications, spotted the Micro LED display technology company LuxVue Technology, in May 2014 acquisition of LuxVue, made a number of Micro LED patented technology, to speed up the layout of the relevant technology patents.
At that time, Apple’s acquisition led to market concerns that Apple is expected to Apple Watch and iPhone on the use of a new generation of Micro LED technology, but do not want to rely too much on the panel factory, then turn LuxVue under the command to get Micro LED
Field of technology dominance.
LuxVue has applied for a micro-device stabilization technology patent in November 2015. The patented technology includes a stabilization layer that can be used to secure a micro-device array on a substrate, such as miniaturization.
LED devices, micro-chip, etc., to ensure that the transfer (transfer) in the process, to maintain a stable state, which is previously developed by the industry Micro LED bottlenecks encountered.
The exposure of this patent shows that LuxVue has crossed the Micro LED’s most critical transfer technology threshold.
As for Sony, it is focused on the Micro LED’s large screen.. ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ??
Sony, which has released its related products earlier than Apple, launched the “Crystal LED Display” at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2012, the first shot of Micro LED consumer electronics applications,
“CLEDIS (Crystal LED Integrated Structure)”, with ultra-high brightness, seamless splicing and display size is almost no boundaries and other characteristics, so that CLEDIS outdoor display can not be affected by ambient light, bringing quite good
Visual effects, Sony more confidently claim to achieve CLEDIS production targets in 2017.
the plant across competing technical threshold, patented technologies to plant ahead of his rival in this
Micro LED field, and China Taiwan region a lot of manufacturers have also been put into research and development, including semiconductor startups Nai Chong
(PlayNitride), Taiwan Institute of Technology, AUO, Qunchuang, crystal power.
Other international manufacturers, including Sony, Samsung, LG, Nichia Chemical, Sharp, etc., and from the University of Strathard University (University of Strathclyde) split the company mLED, the United States Texas Tech University
(Texas Tech University), the French Atomic Energy Agency Electronics and Information Technology Laboratory (Leti), from the University of Illinois (University of Illinois) spin-off X-celeprint also actively develop Micro LED technology.
LabVue and X-celeprint have been leading the plant in the transfer process technology, and X-celeprint has been working with the Taiwan Institute of Technology to develop the relevant technology, previously published PixeLED patented display technology; LuxVue and X-celeprint in the transfer process technology leader in his plant, and X-celeprint has been
Get the exclusive license of Micro-Transfer-Printing (μTP) technology; Strickley University focuses on micro LED head-mounted display (HMD) related applications; and the French Leti laboratory recently from the wisdom of lighting into the market
, The next two to three years, the Micro LED focus on the head up display (HUD) and headset display, the ultimate goal is in 10 years, into the large-size display application market.
from the relevant units have been put into technology research and development, the prototype of the future can be seen roughly Micro LED application development, such as the wisdom of wearable devices, smart phones, virtual reality devices and display screens.
