Compound semiconductor wafer supplier IQE plc has formed a partnership with Micledi Microdisplays BV (Leuven, Belgium) to develop microLEDs for augmented reality products.

Under this agreement, IQE will provide Micledi with a 200mm (8-inch) wafer platform to scale and commercialize this technology to achieve high-volume production for red microLEDs. This geometry allows for compatibility with both standard 200mm and 300mm silicon foundries, which enables the partnership to deliver economies of scale.

“MicroLEDs are the future of immersive display technologies and this agreement expands IQE’s position in a market which is poised for multi-billion dollar growth across a range of end-market applications, including everyday consumer electronics,” said Americo Lemos, CEO of IQE, in a statement.

Sean Lord, CEO of Micledi, said: “By combining MICLEDI’s unique microLED arrays with IQE’s innovative 8-inch platform, we have formed a natural partnership to commercialise and scale our solution to address the high-growth microLED market.”
