BOE And Rohinni Forming Joint Venture To Bring Promise Of MicroLED To LCD Displays

The BOE-Rohinni JV makes thin-film micro and mini LED based backlights economically available to the LCD industry for the first time

BEIJING, China, and COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With distinctive, high-performance displays in high demand and a requirement for competitive consumer electronics or industrial products, BOE and Rohinni will be forming a joint venture to produce ultra-thin micro LED lighting solutions for display backlights. Together, BOE and Rohinni will usher in a new era of displays with unprecedented speed, accuracy and yields compared with existing manufacturing processes.

The BOE-controlled joint venture will combine BOE's renowned next generation LCD design and display capabilities as well as its leading worldwide recognized manufacturing expertise with Rohinni's proprietary high-speed MicroLED placement technology. This joint venture will bring Rohinni's market-ready technology which is three to five times quicker than traditional pick-and-place processes, capable of placing 50 die-per-second (dps) with 10 micron accuracy at 99.999% die yields to consumer products. Rohinni's patented processes enable manufacturers to place micro LEDs onto a substrates with the speed and accuracy needed to support high-volume production. Combining these levels of speed, precision and yield makes it the first economically viable process technology to fully capitalize on the promise of Mini- and MicroLEDs.

The joint venture will be based in China and initially focus on larger size consumer electronics products (with above 32" diagonal displays) and all display sizes in industrial, automotive and other markets. Rohinni's manufacturing technologies and resulting thin-film micro and mini LED based products can be utilized for almost any application, which creates new possibilities for design and product differentiation. TVs and screens of any size can become a factor brighter with better contrast, lights can be as thin as a thread, and products can have new dynamic lighting never seen before. Lighting designs can now be paper thin, more uniform, more dynamic, brighter, and more power efficient than ever before. The BOE controlled joint venture will be able to bring micro and mini LED-based products to market more quickly and cost-effectively and is poised to replace OLED.

"The way we use light in consumer electronics is about to take a huge leap as a result of achieving this milestone joint venture. It is going to change the way products look and perform throughout the world," said Rohinni CEO Matthew Gerber. "We're very excited to hand the reins to the designers and see the waves of new consumer-facing products that can and will be created. BOE's extensive knowledge and experience in LCD markets and applications will make this JV a fruitful and exciting partnership."

"BOE is committed to working with partners to achieve win-win results and provide customers with more valuable products and services," said BOE DAS BG CTO Dong Xue. "The exclusively in-depth cooperation with Rohinni is a new breakthrough in the LCD display field. It will bring brighter, lighter and more efficient LCD backlight solutions to global customers by using both companys' expertise."
