IQE, a supplier of sophisticated semiconductor wafers, has announced a strategic partnership with Porotech, a specialist in microLED and GaN based semiconductors.

The focus of the partnership is to develop, scale and commercialize Porotech wafer technology, which achieves all three colors (RGB) on a 200 or 300 mm GaN-based microLED plate, applications for which include AR / MR / VR, wearable devices , smart displays and large – scale direct view displays.

IQE intends to be Porotech’s epitaxial wafer casting partner, providing GaN MOCVD capacity for mass production of Porotech’s PoroGaN microdisplay technology platforms.

Together, the companies will develop and manufacture 200 mm production platforms as well as 300 mm wafers.

“This partnership marks IQE’s entry into the microLED market with a unique platform,” said IQE CEO Anerico Lemos. “As we stated in March 2022, we believe that the microLED market represents a significant opportunity for our business. IQE’s legacy in GaN epitaxy and our footprint in the production of large volumes of waffles, combined with PoroGaN’s PoroGaN micro-display technology platform, will create a fascinating and differentiated product offering.

“IQE’s legacy in MOCVD’s epitaxial growth technologies, as well as its mass production capabilities, are optimized for very small, high-brightness microLED pixels that match the Porotech platform perfectly,” said Porotech CEO Tongtong Zhu.
