News Source: 

Porotech and PSMC announce the partnership for mass producing the MicroLEDs on 200mm GaN-on-Silicon for display applications.

【2024.01.23 Cambridge】 Poro Technologies Ltd (“Porotech”), a pioneer in GaN-based semiconductor technology and a global fabless MicroLED company, and Taiwan’s Powerchip Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp. (“PSMC”), one of the world’s leading semiconductor foundries, announce a strategic partnership in MicroLEDs for display applications.

This partnership will expedite the production of brightest, high pixel density, smallest and low-cost MicroLEDs for displays with high yield manufacturing for consumer applications. PSMC’s proprietary technologies in semiconductor front-end wafer manufacturing foundry combined with Porotech’s world leading technologies in PoroGaN® MicroLED-on-Silicon (uLEDoS), Dynamic Pixel Tuning® (DPT®), GaN-on-Silicon platform will ensure the commercialization of MicroLED displays.

Mass producing the Porotech’s MicroLED-on-Silicon for pixelation in a semiconductor environment is a step ahead in commercialization of displays for consumer application. PSMC’s strength in front-end semiconductor foundry is also expected to contribute during the mass production stage.

Both parties 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, Chief Executive Officer 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. This strategic partnership speaks volumes about our shared dedication to innovation and excellence. 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!”

Mr. Martin Chu, Executive Vice President of PSMC, added:

“Our strategic alliance with Porotech is a huge step forward into the tremendous opportunities that MicroLEDs can bring to the world. We are excited to collaborate with Porotech to integrate so many technologies from different fields.”

Porotech Technologies Ltd is a trailblazer in MicroLED and gallium nitride (GaN) material technology, headquartered in Cambridge (UK), with R&D Centre in Hsinchu (Taiwan) and sales office in Chandler, Arizona (USA).
