Next Generation of Light Emitting Diode Technology Launched

InfiniLED, a next generation Light Emitting Diode (LED) development and production company, has been launched as a spin-out of the Tyndall National Institute at University College, Cork. InfiniLED’s technology significantly extends the battery life for portable devices such as cameras, mobile phones and laptops as well as for various medical and analytical instrumentation by producing more usable light, using less energy.

The Micro LED technology was invented by a team of researchers led by Brian Corbett at Tyndall National Institute, supported and funded by Enterprise Ireland.

“Portable device manufacturers are continuously in search of new technologies that provide end users with extended battery life, while reducing energy usage. Our Micro LED technology extends battery life by up five times relative to the current state-of-the-art for any device with an LCD display,” says Joe O’Keeffe, interim chief executive of InfiniLED and serial entrepreneur, who has already spun out a series of successful companies. “The Micro LED technology brings performance advantages across a broad spectrum of applications. Already, products have been developed to serve LCD display, medical and analytical instrumentation and maskless lithography markets. InfiniLED is actively seeking new applications, new customers and new licensing opportunities.”

InfiniLED is in the process of raising investment and invites any interested investors to contact

“This is an excellent example of a successful collaboration between researchers, UCC’s Technology Transfer team and external entrepreneurs,” explains Professor Roger Whatmore, chief executive of Tyndall National Institute. “InfiniLED will continue to access our facilities and expertise in the further development of the Micro LED technology under an access agreement between InfiniLED and Tyndall.”
