ABSTRACT: “Are MicroLEDs a Credible Alternative to LCD and OLED?” MicroLED displays could potentially match or exceed OLED in all critical attributes such as brightness, contrast, color gamut, refresh rate, viewing angle, ruggedness and durability, resolution and pixel density, lifetime, power consumption etc.
Development started in the early 2000’s but only started getting some attention when Sony presented the first 55” microLED TV at the 2012 CES. While the prototype was never commercialized, the hype kept growing after Apple acquired microLED startup Luxvue in 2014. Since then, investments and the number of companies involved in microLED development have skyrocketed. So how long will we have to wait until we see the first consumer applications? The science is here, but microLED is an inherently complex technology with cost drivers different from those of incumbents OLED and LCD?
