ABSTRACT

MicroLED Display Integration on 300mm Advanced CMOS Platform

The ideal AR displays enables a FOV = 150° with retina resolution and a long list of parameters to achieve the perfect perception. In any micro display technology those specs will remain science fiction for the foreseeable future and we will explain why. The closest technology that can achieve those specs are microLED displays. MICLEDI Microdisplays (www.micledi.com) is a leading fabless semiconductor design and technology company developing unique, high-performance microLED displays for the Augmented Reality (AR) market. Our technology is based on an innovative combination of III/V materials processing, 3D integration, wafer-level-optics and 300mm Si based processing combined with a proprietary ASIC to provide a self-contained, compact monolithic AR display with high image quality and power efficiency.
