MicroLED versus LED

The following analysis compares the performance of the three categories of LED (Conventional, High Brightness and µLED™) across three different values of NA. The data shows that the MicroLED (µLED™) outperforms the Conventional and High Brightness LEDs on all parameters relating to lumens/watt, cost/lumen and wall plug efficiency, with the performance advantage being specifically strong for lower NA applications. It should be noted that the lumens per mm2 for the MicroLED (µLED™) is lower meaning that a larger area LED die would be required to obtain equivalent optical output. However, this disadvantage reduces as the NA reduces.
