Four-chamber, single-wafer ClassOne Solstice tool to be deployed for R&D and volume manufacture of Raxium’s ultra-high-density monolithic RGB microLED displays 

Kalispell, Mont. – April 12, 2022  – ClassOne Technology, a leading global provider of advanced electroplating and wet processing tools for microelectronics manufacturing, today announced it has shipped a Solstice S4 single-wafer plating system to prominent microLED startup Raxium (Fremont, Calif.) for development and manufacture of microLED displays. Raxium’s innovative monolithic RGB microLED technology, specifically designed for applications such as augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) systems, has reportedly achieved performance efficiency more than five times greater than the previously published world record.

microLEDs are fabricated from non-silicon compound semiconductors and require many thousands of sub-100-micron devices for each end product. This material/quantity combination heightens the need to maximize device yields and performance by leveraging the high plating rates and throughput of the best-in-class Solstice platform. This proven technology has established ClassOne as a leading plating-equipment provider for the burgeoning microLED space, which research firm MarketsandMarkets projects will reach more than US$21 billion by 2027 – a CAGR of 81.5 percent.

“Raxium is at the forefront of microLED development,” said ClassOne CEO Byron Exarcos. “We view their advanced display technology as instrumental to delivering the highest quality next-generation AR/VR devices, and we look forward to collaborating with them to help drive the next phase of their product development.”

“ClassOne shares Raxium’s passion for pushing the boundaries of science and technology to create solutions that transform how we interact with the world around us,” said Craig Peters, CEO of Raxium. “Their Solstice plating system will play an important role as we drive toward high-volume production ramp of our ultra-bright, ultra-high-performance microDisplays.”
