A Solution for Yield, Throughput, Cost, and Performance
VueReal emerged with founders who have more than 10 years’ experience in Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) displays, developing key enabling technologies for AMOLED TVs. With deep insight into the limitations of existing display solutions, the VueReal founders came up with an innovative technology based on microLEDs. Integrating microLEDs into display substrates offers two to three times power savings, significant performance enhancement (higher brightness, color purity, and high contrast ratio), versatile functionality, and different form factors (i.e., flexible system).
However, existing approaches toward microLED displays come with significant challenges such as low yield, low throughput, high power consumption, high cost, and non-manufacturability for mainstream display applications. In addition, all these factors are tightly connected. For example, making LEDs smaller to reduce the cost causes yield, throughput, performance, and power consumption to suffer significantly.
VueReal has developed microLED technologies that decouple these challenges to address them individually. The VueReal microprinting process in combination with its display architecture offers 100% yield without increasing display costs. Moreover, the microprinting process is compatible with small size LED while covering different display sizes without compromising the yield and throughput. VueReal’s high yield and throughput solution includes novel microLED structures, a self-aligned transfer solution, a robust modular microprinting process, inspection technologies, unique repair process, and system level defect management. VueReal is shipping microLED development samples to customers in Q4 2019 and is currently working on the complete a-to-z configuration for its microLED solution to accelerate the adoption of microLED displays in the market.
Reza Chaji is CEO and founder of VueReal Inc., a Waterloo based company which focused on revolutionary technologies for enhancing electronic systems (displays, sensors, imagers, …) by integrating millions of high efficient micro/nanodevices into system substrates.
He received his Ph.D. degree (2008) in Electrical Engineering at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Canada, where he worked on design and implementation of the large-area electronic system for AMOLED displays, biomedical imagers, and bio-array sensors.
He has extensive experience in development and design of pixel circuits, driving technology, backplanes and image enhancement algorithm for emissive displays.
He has over 70 published papers and one book in the field of display and sensor, over 100 filed/granted patent applications, and received several prestigious scholarships and awards including Young Alumni Achievement Medal, Faculty of Engineering, University of Waterloo, 2012; CMC Douglas R. Colton Medal for Research Excellence 2009; and Strategic Microelectronics Council of ITAC Industrial Collaboration Award 2007.
