HKUST LED-FPD Technology R&D Center

HKUST has long been recognized for its contribution to the research and development of the light-emitting diode (LED) and the flat-panel display (FPD) technologies. In March 2011, HKUST LED-FPD Technology R&D Center at Foshan was jointly established by HKUST and Nanhai District Government (NDG). HKUST provides technology and management resources and NDG provides a start-up funding of RMB 25 million and 1,800 m2 of space in Nanhai. The Center comes complete with infrastructure and laboratory equipment.

The Center aims for LED and FPD technology development and transfer of the HKUST-developed LED packaging and manufacturing technologies to optical and electrical industries in Nanhai and neighboring areas for subsequent development and commercialization. It provides technical training, organizes seminars, and serves as a platform for research funding acquisition at the provincial and central government level for large-scale R&D projects. Consultancy services are also provided to local enterprises in design, simulation, product analysis, material development and characterization, reliability testing and failure analysis, reverse engineering, product qualification and standardization.
