Porotech partners with Powerchip to develop microLEDs

25 Jan 2024

To enable mass-production of 200mm GaN-on-Si LEDs for displays.

Poro Technologies, a Cambridge, UK-based developer of gallium nitride (GaN)-based semiconductor and MicroLED technology, and Taiwan’s Powerchip Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. (“PSMC”), have announced a strategic partnership in MicroLEDs for display applications.

The partnership will develop bright, high pixel density, small, low-cost MicroLEDs for displays “with high yield manufacturing for consumer applications,” say the partners, whose stement this week, said:

“PSMC’s proprietary technologies in semiconductor front-end wafer manufacturing combined with Porotech’s expertise in PoroGaN MicroLED-on-silicon, Dynamic Pixel Tuning, GaN-on-silicon platform will ensure the commercialization of MicroLED displays.”

Both parties said they are enthusiastic about the potential outcome of MicroLED-on-Silicon for semiconductor manufacturing technology, capitalizing on manufacturing precision for product performance, high volume and low-cost display applications.

Dr Tongtong Zhu, CEO and Founder of Porotech, commented, “Our collaboration with PSMC signifies a momentous step forward for mass-producing the MicroLED-on-Silicon technology for display applications.

“GaN on Silicon’s role in uLEDoS tech advancement is undeniable. An exciting road lies ahead with PSMC, propelling tremendous opportunity of commercialization with our mutual partners and customers with collective triumph and significant growth in the MicroLED revolution.”

About Porotech

Headquartered in Cambridge, UK, with a research and development center in Hsinchu, Taiwan, and sales office in Chandler, Arizona, Porotech develops MicroLED and gallium nitride material technology.

Porotech’s PoroGaN® platform drives the development of ultra-small and efficient MicroLED chips. These chips are capable of emitting the full visible spectrum of colors using a single GaN material system. The company’s Dynamic Pixel Tuning® technology further enhances display capabilities, enabling MicroLED pixels to emit any visible color at specific current densities.
