These flexible substrate solutions enable notebook designers to take advantage of Micro and Mini LEDs’ space savings and low power consumption. Luumii anticipates its initial monthly production output will reach 40,000 units, extending to 100,000 units per month by the end of the year, when the company will be operating four full manufacturing cells. Luumii is working with several notebook OEMs on the currently shipping keyboard backlights and logos, and expects the products incorporating Luumii’s technologies to be available for consumer purchase later this year.
“Luumii was formed to offer the industry a cost-competitive, first-class solution for notebook and tablet backlighting that could be repeatably produced in high volumes,” stated Luumii CEO Kevin Lin. “We have attained this objective by entering mass production and anticipate ramping very quickly between now and the end of the year to meet customer volume requirements. Rohinni and KoJa bring unique capabilities to this effort that are allowing us to make significant inroads in the industry and move into new market applications.”
The company estimates it will reach monthly usage of 2 million blue, 700,000 red, and 700,000 green Mini LEDs by the end of 2019. Luumii’s process allows design flexibility, optical performance, creativity and differentiation, as well as z-height package reduction and power savings. The Rohinni technology at its core yields products that are up to 60 percent thinner and 25 percent lighter than current solutions, while lowering power consumption by as much as 93 percent.
