Aledia Has Produced Its First Nanowire Chips on 300mm Silicon Wafers Using CEA-Leti Pilot Lines

Aledia, a French startup pioneering a disruptive technology for microLED displays, today announced it has manufactured the world’s first microLED chips produced on 300 mm (12″) silicon wafers. The company, which developed its breakthrough technology on 200 mm (8″) silicon wafers over the past eight years, will produce the chips on both 200 mm and 300 mm wafers. The larger wafers provide better economic payoff and cost-effective integration with smaller-node electronics, which are only available on 300 mm silicon wafers. Aledia was spun out of CEA-Leti, a French research institute pioneering micro- and nanotechnologies, in 2012, and the work on 300 mm wafers has been performed by joint Aledia and CEA-Leti teams.
