News Source: 

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. & LEUVEN, Belgium – Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN), a leading provider of application-specific optical systems and high performance micro-displays for defense, enterprise, consumer and medical products, and MICLEDI Microdisplays, a fabless semiconductor design and technology company developing microLED displays for Augmented Reality (AR), today announced a strategic agreement to work together to design, develop, and manufacture advanced microLED displays to provide a more immersive and information-rich AR experience for use in high-brightness light conditions.

The program will utilize MICLEDI’s unique CMOS production flow and Kopin’s superior backplane control and driving capabilities, along with its deep experience in manufacturing complete display systems, to create full color microLED displays integrated with an advanced CMOS technology node for high-performance defense, enterprise, consumer, and medical systems.

“The demand for AR solutions, particularly for defense programs, has never been higher as users desire more immersive and information-rich experiences,” said Bill Maffucci, senior vice president for Business Development and Strategy at Kopin. “MICLEDI’s microLED technology, combined with Kopin’s advanced backplane design capabilities, aims to create microLED displays that address the demanding needs of emerging applications without the deficiencies of current technologies.”

“We are pleased with Kopin’s adoption and co-development of our disruptive AR display technology in truly innovative system solutions,” said Sean Lord, CEO at MICLEDI. “To enable optimum microdisplays for AR, we believe MICLEDI has developed the world’s first solution for microLED manufacturing in a 300mm CMOS line, which allows integrating both controller ASIC and emitter module on a 300mm wafer in a highly efficient, high volume, and low-cost manufacturing flow. Unique solutions can be tailored to the particular requirements of each end-use system, making MICLEDI’s microLEDs manufactured in collaboration with Kopin’s backplane and system integration skills, applicable to a variety of specialized AR microdisplay systems.”

MICLEDI will be at CES 2024 in Las Vegas located at The Venetian in a private suite hosting meetings and live demonstrations. To make an appointment please contact Harold Blomquist, at harold.blomquist@micledi.com or +1 858-335-4599.
