SILICON VALLEY AND LOS ANGELES, CA - May 15, 2024 - Los Angeles-based Q-Pixel Inc., a Silicon Catalyst Portfolio Company, has developed breakthrough microLED display technology, achieving the highest resolution, active-matrix color display in the world. Q-Pixel’s breakthrough display boasts a stunning 6800 pixels per inch (PPI), far surpassing current state-of-the-art displays. Remarkably, Q-Pixel has fabricated their display entirely using microLED pixels, a highly sought-after technology which has been notoriously challenging to implement.

Unlike most advanced VR displays, which use micro-organic LEDs (micro-OLEDs), Q-Pixel’s displays consist entirely of III-V compound microLED pixels. Synthesized from inorganic materials, III-V microLEDs offer many advantages over OLEDs, including faster response time, higher brightness, longer lifetime, and superior energy efficiency. From a physics perspective, inorganic III-V microLEDs have long been considered the ideal display technology but have lacked a clear path to commercial viability.

J. C. Chen, CEO and co-founder:
“By delivering the world’s highest resolution (6800 PPI) active-matrix color display, Q-Pixel has accomplished two major milestones. First, we have proved that it is possible to produce ultra high-resolution, active displays based on microLED technology. Secondly, Q-Pixel has shown that our TP-LED pixel technology surpasses more mature display technologies such as OLEDs to attain world-record breaking pixel densities. With these latest achievements, Q-Pixel has established the company as a trailblazer in the microLED field and will embark on the commercialization of dazzling displays.”

The main challenge to commercializing microLED displays arise from the traditional approach of assembling full color pixels using individual monochromatic red, green, and blue (RGB) LEDs. For high-resolution displays requiring small (< 50 um) pixels, the assembly, testing, and repair of millions of RGB microLED subpixels is a complicated, labor-intensive, and expensive process. Moreover, the physical space required for three RGB subpixels restricts the display’s pixel density, posing an obstacle to realizing high-resolution displays. Q-Pixel’s overcomes both hurdles by replacing three RGB subpixels with individual, fully color-tunable pixels.

Nick Kepler, Silicon Catalyst COO
"Q-Pixel is a pioneer in microLEDs, achieving full color with just one pixel and voltage tuning because of their proprietary III-V growth technology, resulting in higher resolution, simpler manufacturing, and lower cost than other microLEDs. The active-matrix display they are demonstrating at SDI's Display Week boasts a stunning 6800 pixels per inch (PPI), far surpassing current state-of-the-art displays, such as the Apple Vision Pro (~3380 PPI), and establishes that Q-Pixel's technology can unlock the potential of microLEDs for display markets from AR/VR through smartphones to large-scale screens. Their team has tremendous strengths and we believe the Silicon Catalyst ecosystem possesses the complementary value to help them achieve success.”
