- Mini-LED adoption driven by high-end LCD displays and narrow-pixel-pitch LED direct-view digital signage
- Semiconductor Today
Interest in micro-LEDs has grown exponentially since Apple acquired technology startup Luxvue in 2014. All major display makers have now invested in the technology and other semiconductor or hardware companies such as Intel, Facebook Oculus or Google have joined in, notes the report ‘MiniLED for Display Applications: LCD & Digital Signage’ by market research and strategy consulting firm Yole Développement. Amid this flurry of activity, a new term emerged in early 2017: mini-LED. The technology is often described as a stepping stone, bridging the technology and application gap between traditional LEDs and micro-LEDs.
