Unique monolithic MicroLED technology

Plessey’s high-brightness displays are able to power the next generation of smart-glasses and wearable display applications because of its light weight and energy efficient MicroLEDs. Without restricting the overall experience for AR, MR and HUDs applications.

The growing consumer demand for augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and Head-up display (HUDs) technology in our day-to-day lives, emphasising why bulky virtual reality headsets will become a thing of the past and furthermore, why next generation smart-glasses and HUDs will begin to strive.

MicroLEDs:

  • MicroLED arrays with emitters as small as 1 micron
  • MicroLEDs driven at low current density for greater efficiency and longevity
  • External Quantum Efficiency three times higher than best in class benchmark, more improvements in the pipeline
  • MicroLED arrays that provide at least 100,000 nits at 1 watt, that’s TV equivalent brightness at only 5mW
  • Coloured pixels fabricated in monolithic form
  • Cross talk issues between colour channels removed
  • Arrays utilising Plessey’s unique in-house developed CMOS back plane
  • Technology roadmap defined for next 18 months, with quarterly demonstrations
