Wants to win more orders from Apple

Foxconn is throwing shedloads of cash into micro LED technology in a bid to win micro LED-backlit display orders from Apple for its next-generation iPhone devices.

According to the Chinese-language Economic Daily News, Foxconn has had three of its subsidiaries - Advanced Optoelectronic Technology (AOT), Epileds Technologies, and Marketech International - develop and build up their capacities related to the production of micro LED chips and production equipment.

AOT, which has been keen to develop both mini and micro LED technologies says it can produce LED BLUs for 8K panels and flip-chip packaging process for the production of mini LED chips.

AOT is developing micro LED devices for applications including monitors, notebooks, automotive and digital gaming devices.

Epileds, which produces LED epitaxial wafers and LED chips, is one of a few Taiwan-based LED companies that are proficient in the production of RGB mini LED chips, and the RGB technology is also essential for the development of micro LED products.

LCD equipment supplier Marketech has announced it has completed a collaborative effort with Belgium based nano-electronic centre, Imec, for developing testing chip implantation equipment for micro LED manufacturing.

Imec has delivered the testing chip implantation equipment to clients, and the Imec-Marketech team has also received orders for mass transfers of LED chips, said the report.
