Q-Pixel joins Silicon Catalyst to accelerate full-color micro-LED display development
To accelerate development of its full-color displays manufactured with tunable polychromatic LEDs, fabless micro-LED display innovator Q-Pixel Inc of Los Angeles, CA, USA has joined Silicon Valley-based Silicon Catalyst, the world’s only incubator focused exclusively on accelerating early-stage semiconductor hardware companies.
Q-Pixel has developed a single LED pixel that can be tuned across the full color spectrum rather than requiring three pixels (red, green, blue) to achieve full color. This enables Q-Pixel’s displays to deliver higher resolution and more brightness with less power consumption and lower cost, it is claimed. Earlier this year, Q-Pixel demonstrated the highest micro-LED density in the world, the firm adds. Its technology targets high-resolution displays for screen sizes ranging from personal (smartphones and wearable devices) to large (greater than 100 inch).
The Silicon Catalyst ecosystem — which includes a coalition of in-kind and strategic partners that reduce the cost and complexity of development along with a network of experienced advisors that coach and connect startup entrepreneurs — helps early-stage semiconductor hardware companies to address the challenges of moving from idea to realization while simultaneously de-risking the companies for investors.
“Q-Pixel is delighted to join Silicon Catalyst as a portfolio company. We expect their extensive ecosystem will help us engage with customers and build a profitable business around our technology,” says Q-Pixel’s co-founder & CEO J.C. Chen.
“We are impressed with the company’s vision and progress,” comments Silicon Catalyst’s chief operating officer Nick Kepler. “Our comprehensive ecosystem of advisors, strategic & in-kind partners, and investors look forward to helping them on their journey to deliver innovative products to their target markets.”
