SiliconCore Technology is to enter into licensing agreements with a select number of LED display manufacturers, granting the rights to use its patented Common Cathode technology. SiliconCore developed its Common Cathode process after the company realised the benefits it had on direct view LED. This led to the development of the first range of LED displays to offer ultra high resolution, while maintaining the lowest power consumption, highest brightness and lowest operating temperatures in the industry.
SiliconCore’s CEO Eric Li commented: “The team at SiliconCore recognised almost a decade ago the opportunity to innovate within the LED display industry and produce higher-resolution better performing displays. We focused our research and development on inefficiencies in the design of LED displays, and Common Cathode technology was the result. With the trend towards higher-resolution LED displays of competitive performance specifications, and the added pressure to produce more efficient larger displays, managing the power, heat and brightness of displays based on the Common Anode technology was fast becoming an insurmountable challenge. The Common Cathode technology provides the perfect answer for overcoming this challenge. This puts us in the perfect position to licence our technology for wider use, enabling further innovation across the industry in the production of highly efficient high-resolution LED displays.”
Three brands have confirmed partnerships with SiliconCore so far, with a number of additional collaborations to be announced throughout 2019.
SiliconCore has expertise in digital and analogue mixed-signal semiconductor integrated circuit design. The Common Cathode LED technology is implemented as a chip-level technical solution enabling key features such as low power and heat dissipation, high refresh rates, low brightness grayscale, and low EMI. This allows adapters of Common Cathode technology to create efficient, long-lasting displays from larger pixel pitch down to the very fine pixel pitch including sub 1mm.
