News

Arizona-based MiAC fab aims to accelerate time‐to‐market of sub 5 μm pixel monolithically integrated microLED displays

Compound Photonics US Corporation, a maker of compact microdisplay solutions for Augmented and Mixed Reality (AR/MR), has opened its MiAC (MicroLED Innovation Acceleration Center) in Chandler, Arizona.

According to the company, out will be the world's first fab dedicated to accelerate the time‐to‐market of sub 5 μm pixel monolithically integrated microLED displays to meet the rising demand for mass market AR/MR and smart wearable devices.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey commented: “Companies like Compound Photonics are strengthening Arizona's reputation as the best place in the country to develop cutting‐edge technologies. Arizona is proud to be chosen as the home of this state‐of‐the‐art facility and we congratulate CP on their expansion.”

Arizona Commerce Authority President & CEO Sandra Watson said:“Arizona's advanced manufacturing industry continues to grow rapidly thanks to investments from innovators like Compound Photonics. Skilled tech talent, a strong supply chain, and the best pro‐innovation environment in the nation continue to make our state the location of choice for next‐gen projects like the MiAC fab.”

Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke stated: “It is very exciting to see companies in Chandler like Compound Photonics pushing the frontiers of augmented and mixed reality. We are delighted that CP is bringing more global resources to our city and contributing towards Chandler's high‐tech job growth."

Richard Jackson, CP's Co‐CEO added: “Microdisplay has been a critical component that determines form factor, size, power consumption and optical performance of mainstream AR glasses. CP has been in the forefront of delivering a cutting edge of sub 3 micron pixel display drive technology & platform with a track record of bringing production‐worthy products to market. By aligning with our partners' expertise, equipment and resources at MiAC, together we will accelerate microLED process advancement to be ready to scale for commercialisation.”

With over $20 million investment since 2018, the MiAC will facilitate a strong collaboration among CP and its industry partners in one high‐tech workspace. The approximately 15,000‐square‐foot, Class 100 clean room provides direct access to specialised fabrication and metrology equipment to facilitate advanced process.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
