Chinese LED maker Sanan Optoelectronics announced that the company has supplied Mini and Micro LED chips to several panel manufacturers in the products unveiled at CES 2019.
Sanan noted that its LED chips have been adopted in TVs, digital displays, smartphones, smart watches, AR/VR glasses, and gaming notebooks. Mini LEDs, with its compact unit size between 100 to 200 micrometers, allow for high density backlight designs with local dimming capabilities. Sanan has begun large-scale production of RGB Mini LEDs and offers a family of RGB display and backlight Mini LEDs for emerging applications.
The company also noted that it has complimented its portfolio with R&D advancements and capacity investments for Micro LED that includes 27 applied patents and key partnerships. Micro LED is poised to be the revolutionary next-generation technology, offering significant advances in image quality through individually driven self-emitting pixels.
Simon Lin, CEO of Sanan Optoelectronics, said, “The industry is certainly taking full advantage of the key benefits that Mini LEDs bring, namely enhanced power savings, and higher performance. Given the success of our core business in LED chips combined with our manufacturing infrastructure and cost competitiveness through economies of scale, we have been able to overcome the high barrier of entry for the Mini LED market. While we are fully committed to drive innovation further for this technology and are well positioned to support the market’s high volume demand, we are also ramping up R&D and scaling up capacity for Micro LED production to meet the demands of the next wave of innovative LED displays”.
