Mini-LED Verses MicroLED
Micro-Led is a new generation display technology. It has a thinner backlight, LED units smaller than 100 micrometres.
MicroLED displays, use millions of LEDs, one for each pixel. Each individual MicroLED is tiny, which means the modular nature of the Micro-Led can be gigantic
Micro LED has a simpler structure with better performance. Mini LED is a transitional technology between traditional LED and Micro LED. It is an improved version of a traditional LED backlight.
Mini LEDs deliver best in backlight applications in power-saving, thinner HDR, and notch design displays. For example, displays of smartphones, TVs, automotive displays, and gaming notebooks. Micro LED, on the other hand, is applied to wearable handsets, smartphones, automotive displays, augmented reality/virtual reality products, displays wall and televisions.
Mini LED technology offers the best results when it comes to mass technology which is less difficult than Micro LED. Most of the existing equipment can be used for mass production of Mini LED
In addition, Mini LED is more economical due to its potential in LCD display backlight market
