Plessey Semiconductors’ monolithic microLED technology is viable for the creation of next-generation Head-Up Displays (HUDs), enabling new AR and VR applications. According to the company, MicroLEDs are emerging as the only technology that can provide high luminance in a small format. All leading manufacturers of wearable technologies are currently pursuing manufactures that can deliver an ideal microLED solution. With its demonstrator, Plessey can move users into production of a monolithic display based on microLEDs using the company’s proprietary GaN-on-Silicon approach.
The demonstrator, which has been produced in collaboration with Artemis Optical, combines Plessey’s monolithic display, based on an array of microLEDs integrated alongside an active matrix backplane, with the patented film technology and a single lens arrangement from Artemis. The combination of technologies removes ambient light in the wavelength matching the microLED display output, resulting in a HUD that delivers very high display brightness with low power consumption, in a format that is considerably smaller than existing HUD designs, yet still offers significant cost savings.
