Inkron CEO Dr. Juha Rantala is an entrepreneur and executive with 20 years in semiconductor, optoelectronics materials and components development and commercialization as a CTO and CEO. In the late 90s, he pioneered siloxane semiconductor material innovations that later resulted in several multimillion semiconductor material businesses. For the last 15 years, he has been an active engineering executive who has developed and commercialized novel semiconductor manufacturing materials and device manufacturing production operations with a tier-1 global client base. With PhD in chemistry, Juha’s tenures also include academic faculty roles in USA and Finland. He has published more than 70 scientific and technical articles, authored 3 technical editorials and contributed as an inventor for about 100 patents. During his professional career he has operated internationally including living 10 years in Asia.
Novel Encapsulation and Siloxane Materials for CSP Packaged LEDs
The inorganic microLEDs are about to disrupt the LCD and organic LED (OLED) dominated display markets within the next 5 to 10 years. The emerging micro-LED technology is still going through maturing phase with particular effort to solve challenges of the high throughput mass transfer. At the same time quantum dot (QD) wavelength conversion and narrow band (NB) phosphors are entering LED displays and lighting. In future, displays will be based on RGB micro-LEDs pixels based on chip scale packaging (CSP). However, new material solutions are needed to protect environmentally sensitive QD / NB phosphorus and support diversified integration schemes of CSP/micro-LED devices. Inkron’s proprietary siloxane materials offer advanced manufacturing solutions for these devices with high reliability.
