MicroLED displays are expected to challenge the incumbent technologies since they can deliver superior brightness, contrast and energy efficiency. Applications for MicroLED include large TVs, wearables (watches) and smart glasses. In the last two years, LCD panel makers have also adopted MiniLED backlights in TV and IT applications. In both types of displays, LED chips need to be transferred at high throughput and driven by a custom backplane. This session will cover the commercialization roadmap and the remaining challenges in manufacturing.
