K&S and Rohinni receive initial orders for PIXALUX mini- and micro-LED placement system

Singapore-based chip assembly & packaging equipment and materials supplier Kulicke and Soffa Industries Inc (K&S) and Rohinni LLC of Coeur d’Alene, ID, USA (which has developed a proprietary method for transferring semiconductor devices) have received initial orders for PIXALUX - K&S’s micro- and mini-LED high-speed die placement solution that was jointly developed with Rohinni. K&S expects to ship several additional systems during its current fiscal quarter and anticipates higher-volume market adoption as early as calendar year 2020.

Looking ahead, both K&S and Rohinni anticipate meaningful growth as PIXALUX is increasingly positioned to enable high-volume and cost-competitive production of LED technology – through a combination of throughput and accuracy for small-die applications - enabling new forms of backlighting and direct-view LED displays.

Also, at the annual trade show and conference of the Japan Electronics Packaging and Circuits Association (JPCA) in Tokyo, the PIXALUX placement system was honored with an Equipment of the Year Award.

“The industry recognition from JPCA, our initial system shipments and ongoing customer interest highlight the unique value PIXALUX is capable of delivering to the broad display market,” says Chan Pin Chong, senior VP at K&S. “We remain focused on accelerating customer adoption as we prepare to ramp production to high volume,” he adds.

Customer evaluations of PIXALUX began last fall with systems installed at several manufacturing locations. With nearly 250 million square meters of flat-panel displays produced annually, the growth potential of emerging mini- and micro-LED placement technologies is extremely promising, it is reckoned.
