Lextar partners with X Display
Vertically integrated LED product maker Lextar Electronics Corp of Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan and micro-LED display firm X Display Company (XDC) of Cork, Ireland and Research Triangle Park (RTP), NC, USA have entered into agreements, including a development & license agreement and services agreement wherein Lextar has licensed XDC’s intellectual property, and both Lextar’s and XDC’s customers will be supplied with Lextar’s micro-LEDs.
The partnership brings “innovative and feasible micro-LED display mass-production technology to Lextar,” says C.N. Huang, VP of Lextar Technology Center. “Lextar has committed to developing micro-LED technology for years and is known for its expertise in the display industry. By virtue of practicing the broad and foundational IP portfolio of XDC with respect to micro-LED, we look forward to the robust cooperation between the two companies to accelerate the commercialization of next-generation display technology,” he adds. “Moreover, our customers can benefit from our one-stop service from micro-LED chip to display module.”
Lextar has invested in several LED miniaturization projects for micro-LED products - from chip, packaging, testing, assembly, module, circuit drives to sub-systems - and is working closely with partners like XDC.
“Lextar is an innovative and dynamic LED company with strong experience in the display industry,” comments Dr Matthew Meitl, co-founder & VP of displays at XDC.
