Foxconn Synchs with Porotech for Micro-LED Commercialization

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
Consumer electronics company Hon Hai Technology Group (Foxconn) has formed a partnership with fabless micro-LED display technology developer Porotech. The partnership seeks to accelerate Porotech's research and productization of micro-LED technology, bringing together Foxconn’s technological portfolio and Porotech’s proprietary technology to address the challenges of integrating multiple disciplines, including semiconductor wafer manufacturing, hybrid bond, integrated circuit design, optoelectronics, quantum physics, and optics.

According to an announcement, the collaboration aims to yield an end product targeting ultrahigh density and energy-efficient micro-LED micro-displays for augmented reality (AR) applications, as well as wearable and smart devices.

Porotech's Dynamic Pixel Tuning technology, which the company unveiled last year, enables full-color or tunable color displays using identical pixels from a single wafer — achieving color uniformity while eliminating complex fabrication processes. The company’s PoroGaN platform is configurable to LED epiwafers for micro-LED and mini-LED chip processing. Other configurations include chip-on-wafer and tunable material platforms.

augmented reality
Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that integrates digital information, typically in the form of computer-generated graphics, images, or data, with the real-world environment in real-time. AR enhances the user's perception of the physical world by overlaying or combining digital content onto the user's view of the real world, often through devices like smartphones, tablets, smart glasses, or specialized AR headsets. Key features and principles of augmented reality: Real-time...
virtual reality
Virtual reality (VR) is a computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional environment or experience that can be interacted with and explored by an individual using electronic devices, such as a headset with a display. VR aims to create a sense of presence, immersing users in a computer-generated world that can be entirely fictional or a replication of the real world. It often involves the use of specialized hardware and software to provide a fully immersive and interactive experience. ...
gallium nitride
Gallium nitride (GaN) is a compound made up of gallium (Ga) and nitrogen (N). It is a wide-bandgap semiconductor material that exhibits unique electrical and optical properties. Gallium nitride is widely used in the production of various electronic and optoelectronic devices, including light-emitting diodes (LEDs), laser diodes, power electronics, and high-frequency communication devices. Key points about gallium nitride (GaN): Chemical composition: Gallium nitride is a binary compound...
