PlayNitride demonstrated its latest Micro-LED displays at SID DisplayWeek 2019 - a 7.56" 720x480 (114 PPI) transparent MicroLED, a flexible Micro-LED on a polyimide substrate and a high-brightness, high-resolution passive matrix MicroLED aimed towards wearable applications.
PlayNitride aims to release its first Micro-LED display products by the end of 2019. In 2017 the company started to sample micro-LED panels and shipped samples to 10-20 potential customers.
The company's chairman and CEO, Charles Li, said in June 2018 that 5-6 of these customers are continuing the developing of micro-LED modules based on these panels. The company is collaborating with Chinese display maker Tianma, and also with Taiwan-based OLED producer RiTDisplay and China-based CSoT.
While there are still technical challenges for Micro-LED displays, it seems as if the technology is advancing quickly, and may pose a threat to the OLED market - in areas such as microdisplays, AR, wearables and premium TVs.
