State and Regional support

In July 2020, the Rhône-Alpes Region and the Grenoble Metropole approved a €12M guarantee to help Aledia build a new manufacturing site based in Champagnier near Grenoble.


In September 2020, the Investment Fund Société de Projet Industriel (SPI), a fund managed by Bpifrance and underwritten by the French State as part of the Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir (PIA), was lead investor in the Aledia's €80 M equity round.

In September 2020, Aledia raised €80 million as part of its Series D equity financing to complete product development and create a new display manufacturing facility based on Aledia's proprietary 3D microLEDs technology .

Patents

  • Aledia has developed and patented a 3D microLED technology based on GaN (Gallium Nitride) nanowires on large-area silicon wafers.
  • More than 197 patent families (September 2020).

Supply Chain Advantage

Contrarily to today's available MicroLEDs applications based on sapphire chips which require dedicated factories, Aledia's technology is able to leverage already available, established, high-yield microelectronics processes and capacity in existing foundries – making it highly competitive in terms of manufacturability.

Building of a new production site in Champagnier (near Grenoble) France. Complete transfer of silicon processing to high-volume commercial silicon foundries.

November 2019

All R&D staff moved to Echirolles, new building dedicated to R&D and low-volume production . The new building is also the company's headquarters. Installation of equipment necessary to facilitate the start of volume nanowire production.

September 2019

Aledia’s Nanowire Technology is designed on 200mm large wafers and will be moved to 300mm Silicon Wafers by 2023 in time for high-volume production, significantly more than existing microLED platforms.
