Interest in MicroLED displays has grown exponentially since the acquisition of Luxvue by Apple in 2014. Since then, numerous companies have initiated work on the development of this innovative technologies, leading to the filing of more than 1500 patents by close to 150 companies. 

Yole Développement is organizing its 1st MicroLED Display TechDay focused on MicroLED technology development and integration into display systems. This half-day event is an unparalleled gathering of leading companies and investors from around the world, meeting to discuss the timeliest issues, challenges and opportunities related to this potential breakthrough technology. It will take place at the DoubleTree Hotel, San Jose, on June 27 from 12:30PM to 6:15PM.

The structure of the TechDay will allow attendees to get valuable insights into the status and future of the MicroLED Display industry (technology, manufacturing, industry and applications / markets) as well as provide unprecedented opportunities for networking and meeting with key players and a round table to end the discussions.

Key speakers include: Yole Développement, VueReal, Tesoro/QMAT, Uniqarta, Nanosys, Jasper Display, X-Celeprint, Rohinni and Lumiode.

Large area, high-quality GaN and GaAs engineered EPI substrates for high yield Micro-LED processesQMAT/Tesoro
One of the important elements to successful micro-LED display adoption is achieving cost-effective high-yield manufacturing with good micro-LED device uniformity and efficiency. Recent advances in layer-transfer methods are making low defect density, large-area growth templates a reality for GaN and other WBG compound semiconductors. QMAT will introduce its layer-transfer technology tuned for Micro-LED applications integrating functional layers that simplify printability and testability. Unique Micro-LED test challenges at the EPI wafer level and possible solutions will also be discussed.

Using a laser to place known good die at 100 million units/hourUniqarta
A novel laser-based solution for placing components at rates exceeding 100 million units/hour will be presented. This non-contact method also provides the capability to pre-screen unwanted components and replace them with good ones. An overview of the technology will be presented as well as a summary of its current status and development plans.


Emissive Displays with Transfer-Printed Microscale Inorganic LEDs – X-Celeprint 
Major advances in flat panel displays can come from the pixel-level integration of high performance microscale components fabricated on semiconductor wafers and transferred by advanced assembly methods onto large-area substrates. Displays that use direct light emission from tiny inorganic light emitting diodes (μILEDs) have the potential to be very bright and power efficient.  Transfer-printing with elastomer stamps is a candidate assembly technology for making μILED displays, serving as the metaphorical bridge between the LED wafer and the display panel. We present demonstrations of displays made from red, green, and blue μILEDs fabricated on gallium arsenide, silicon, and sapphire wafers, transferred to glass and plastic display substrates by transfer-printing. The demonstrator displays exhibit interesting characteristics, including transparency, flexibility, repair-ability, wide color gamut, and pulse-width modulated active matrix driving schemes facilitated by transfer-printed micro-scale driver circuits.

Quantum Dots for MicroLED DisplayNanosys
Micro-LED display has been getting a lot of attention in the last couple years due to its potential to deliver high peak brightness while consuming significantly less power than any of the existing display solutions. However, current monolithic and heterogenous microLED manufacturing methods are not cost effective for mass-market devices. Could Quantum Dots offer a color conversion solution that accelerates microLED adoption?
This talk will discuss in detail the requirements for quantum dot color converters for micro-LED display and the current development status of quantum dots for this application.

Micro-LED Microdisplays by Integration of III-V LEDs with Silicon TFTs Lumiode
Emissive micro-LED microdisplays have been a topic of interest due to the need for high luminance levels in emerging applications, like Augmented Reality. Lumiode’s technology uses III-V LED and directly integrates thin film silicon transistors to combine both efficient light emitters with active matrix circuits. We will present an overview of our technology and the need for micro-LEDs in new emerging markets.

Silicon Backplanes Enabling the Future of MicroLED Displays Jasper Display
Jasper Display Corporation (JDC) is a fabless semiconductor design house specializing in backplane designs for display applications. For the last 4 years JDC has been a driving force behind accelerating our microled partners to high resolution microdisplays. Our backplanes bring high current densities, high speed, and rapid scalability to microled microdisplays. JDC will discuss our capabilities and solutions roadmap to provide the industry with backplanes and controllers so that our partners can focus on their core competence to accelerate the industries maturity and growth.

MicroLED Displays: buzz or display revolution? Yole Développement
Compared to existing LCD and OLED displays, µLEDs offer the promise of ultra-high pixel density, dramatically reduced power consumption, improved color gamut, fast refresh rate, wide viewing angle, high contrast, long lifetime and environment stability. Conceptually, µLED displays could serve the needs of and benefit every single application, spanning from wearable and mobile devices to AR/VR, TVs and even large video displays as demonstrated recently by Sony.

So what’s missing? The science is here, but the success of the technology will depend on overcoming a variety of engineering and manufacturing challenge including (but not limited to) the manipulation of the millions of micron-sized individual chips composing a display. This talk will provide a review of µLED, multiple engineering and manufacturing challenges associated with the technology and discuss additional potential supply chain issues.
