MICLEDI and Kura announce collaboration on advanced microLED displays for Kura AR products.
 
SAN FRANCISCO and LEUVEN, Belgium, Oct. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MICLEDI Microdisplays, a number one developer of microLED shows for augmented actuality (AR) glasses, and Kura Technologies, a world main innovator in AR headsets right now introduced a collaboration to fabricate AR glasses. The new glasses are designed by Kura and incorporate MICLEDI’s distinctive 300mm microLED shows to realize the efficiency required for Kura’s subsequent era of AR glasses. Based upon Kura’s proprietary structure from the chip stage up, these subsequent era glasses function groundbreaking efficiency capabilities.
 
The two firms have been working collectively for over a yr with MICLEDI offering Kura early entry to superior microLEDs below a carefully held collaboration. Kura was one of many first clients to obtain microLEDs from MICLEDI, enabling them to construct and take a look at their distinctive method for driving and controlling microLED shows for AR glasses.
 
Under the partnership, MICLEDI will proceed to offer Kura entry to gadgets inbuilt its 200mm fab in addition to present Kura with early entry to personalised blue, inexperienced and crimson gadgets as they arrive from their 300mm wafer foundry.
 
“MICLEDI is pleased to be an integral part of Kura’s innovation journey,” mentioned Sean Lord, MICLEDI CEO. “It is very rewarding to serve the needs of a nimble, fast-paced customer like Kura, and it has made us a better company. We’ve had a chance to visit Kura’s office in the Bay Area, meet their team and see their latest developments and demos. We were very impressed by their progress over the years, the multi-disciplinary technical expertise and the field-of-view and clarity of their demos.”
 
“Kura’s fast-paced product engineering team has benefited tremendously from MICLEDI’s quick-turn 200mm prototype fabrication capability and responsive team of professional LED design and process experts,” says Kelly Peng, founder, CEO and CTO of Kura. “More importantly, though, we feel that MICLEDI is well-positioned to achieve industry leadership in 300mm microLED fabrication, offering process advantages and direct compatibility with our high performance custom 300mm backplane.”

According to the market analyst company, Yole, the overall global AR market is estimated to reach $88.4 billion (USD) by 2027 with a compounded annual growth rate of more than 30% from 2021 to 2027 and beyond as it becomes the next consumer platform.

“In May of this year, we announced a partnership with GlobalFoundries to bring our proprietary 300mm microLED designs into high volume, low cost, mass production. Working with Kura should provide mutually attractive timing and mass production ramp plans for both MICLEDI and GlobalFoundries,” added Lord.

Kura’s proprietary architecture enables dynamic defect correction, 100x resolution expansion, and can tolerate 10,000x the defect rate and 5x the uniformity variation of their competitors enabling them to go to market with high performance, 8K AR glasses with the microLED panels that can be built now and in the next year, not several years from now.

“The partnership with GlobalFoundries allows us to take advantage of their expertise in large-scale, reliable manufacturing in order to reliably ramp our glasses to the 100,000’s of units our customers are demanding. We’re excited to be the only AR company we’re aware of that is working with such a large foundry to build our custom microdisplays,” said Bayley Wang, co-founder and technical lead of Kura. “Combined with the profitable tape-out of our customized mixed-signal show driver IC, which is the world’s quickest micro show driving IC at our accomplice TSMC, we’re on monitor to reliably construct our shows and launch our product at scale.”
