What are MicroLED or OLED Microdisplays?

MicroLEDs are similar to OLED but better. Like OLED, Micro LED consists of extremely tiny LEDs, each of which comprises a red, green, and blue sub-pixel that can provide its light. MicroLEDs can provide higher brightness than OLEDs and typically have longer lifetimes, and can be directly applied onto a TFT or CMOS backplane similarly as OLED.

OLED on Silicon, as shown in the diagram above is an example of a MicroLED from eMagin. Here are some key technical details on the eMagin OLED microdisplays:

  • <1ยต Second Response Time
  • No Backlight Required
  • 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio
  • 1,000 to 1,500 Times Faster than LCD
  • Reduces Eye Fatigue and Headaches
