Lextar partners with X Display for microLED

Taiwan-based Lextar Electronics and US-based X Display (XDC) have announced a partnership concerning the development of microLED displays.

They have entered into agreements wherein Lextar has licensed the US microLED display developer's intellectual property, and both companies' customers will be supplied the Taiwanese maker's high-performance microLEDs.

"We are pleased to announce our partnership with XDC, which brings the innovative and feasible microLED display mass-production technology to Lextar," said CN Huang, vice president of Lextar Technology Center. "By virtue of practicing the broad and foundational IP portfolio of XDC with respect to microLED, we look forward to the robust cooperation between the two companies to accelerate the commercialization of next-generation display technology. Moreover, our customers can benefit from our one-stop service from microLED chip to display module."

Lextar said it has invested in several of the next generation LED miniaturization projects for microLED products from chip, packaging, testing, assembly, module, circuit drives to sub-systems, and is working closely with partners like XDC.

"Lextar is an innovative and dynamic LED company with strong experience in the display industry" said Matthew Meitl, co-founder and VP of Displays at XDC. "We are excited to partner with Lextar and co-develop microLEDs for our customers."

XDC's elastomer stamp mass-transfer technology is regarded as a viable method to mass-produce microLED displays for applications ranging from TVs, signage, monitors, notebooks and smartphones, according to the companies.
