COB business has received strong attention and institutional investors frequently ask questions.


According to Lehman's Investor Activity Record List, eight of the 15 questions raised by investors in the interactive exchanges related to the COB business.


Q: what is the current domestic market promotion of COB business?


Li Mantie: In the past Lehman display products in the domestic market accounted for less, since last year launched the third generation of COB high-definition display products, the company believes that with a unique advantage of the COB products can open the domestic market. Because the application area is all over the country, the industry is also very extensive, so the company uses the regional + industry market layout. Areas including more than 30 provinces in the country are pushing, industry including military, public security, security, radio and television, power, water conservancy, emergency center, etc. are applicable areas.——Micro/Mini LED


The COB marketing strategy of the company is to form strategic alliances with high quality customers and implement the strategy of big customers. By establishing cooperative relations with strategic partners and combining the abundant resource advantages of strategic partners in the relevant industries in the relevant regions, the company provides appropriate differentiated products, and gives appropriate concessional space to jointly increase the promotion and expansion of the company's COB products. Next, the company will negotiate with more than 100 partners to establish relations, close cooperation, and constantly strengthen the promotion of COB business market. At present, there is a good trend, that is, domestic customers are more recognized the company's COB products, think that the company's COB products can meet its use requirements, and will not be out of date within five to seven years.——Micro/Mini LED


Q: the price of the COB product of the company?


Li Mantie: At present, the price of COB is about 10% higher than SMD, but the product performance is higher than SMD, and the use and maintenance cost is also lower. In the future, the price will decrease with the increase of product scale and yield, and the price will be about 10% lower than SMD after large-scale production.——Micro/Mini LED


Q: how much is the cost of chip products for COB products? Is there a positive impact on the decline in chip prices?


Li Mantie: Chips account for about 20% of the cost of COB materials. Decreasing chip prices will provide some room for price reductions, but COB chips require more than conventional chips with smaller spacing.——Micro/Mini LED


Q: does the company produce COB display panel equipment purchased by the company?


Li Mantie: The company's COB display panel production equipment, part of the domestic procurement, part of the company's technology and production needs are customized overseas. Therefore, the COB industry chain is relatively strict, with technical barriers and capital barriers.——Micro/Mini LED


Q: what advantages do the company COB have compared with the traditional surface products?


Li Mantie: At present, the integrated package technology of chip on board is adopted in our independent research and development of the COB display panel, which combines the package and display technology. It has the technical advantages of high density, high protection, high reliability, high adaptability, high picture quality and low use cost. Its comprehensive performance is better than the surface mount products on the market at present. At the present stage, its cost and price will be higher than that of the above products. However, as the point spacing goes down, the traditional SMD products with small spacing enter the bottleneck period, there are many product pain points, such as product stability is severely tested, maintenance costs are high.——Micro/Mini LED


The third generation of COB products we developed as LED small spacing update iteration products, with high protection features, with anti-collision, moisture-proof, shock-proof, positive waterproof advantages; high reliability with the process to avoid thermal damage, inherently healthy characteristics; high adaptability to meet the characteristics of indoor use of various environments; high picture quality with High contrast, high resolution, high gamut characteristics; low cost of use with low energy consumption, low maintenance and installation costs.

Lehman shares are expected to launch Micro LED in 2020.


With the contention of a hundred new display technologies, the application prospects of OLED, LCD, LED, Mini/Micro LED and other solutions have attracted institutional investors'attention.


Talking about the application prospects of OLED, LCD, LED in commercial display, Li Mantie said that this is mainly related to display size, less than 80 inches of display, LCD, OLED can be mass produced. LCD, OLED and so on will be of no commercial significance if they are more than 80 inches, and their price and performance will have a big bottleneck. Over 80 inches is currently mainly projection, including the market of laser television, the other major solution is LED ultra-small spacing, and COB excellent display performance and high reliability in large-scale commercial display will be more advantageous. Projection itself has certain limitations in luminance, color and contrast. COB display has the advantages of higher contrast, wider color gamut, better picture quality, more flexible and fast stitching methods and higher environmental adaptability. The future COB display panel opens up more than 80 inches of the market, projection market. Space will be subject to certain restrictions.——Micro/Mini LED


At the same time, Li Mantie also introduced Lehman shares about the layout of Mini/Micro LED. In Lehman's specific three-year product plan, it is planned to launch the Mini LED of P 0.9 by the end of this month, the Mini LED of P 0.6 by March next year, the flip-flop process of P 0.5 Lehman Mini LED by the second quarter of 2009, and the micro LED by 2020. Mini / Micro LED is a high-density integrated micro-size LED array on a chip. It is the next generation of micro-spacing display technology based on COB packaging. It is a further upgrade of small-spacing LED. Lehman has the ability of flip-chip COB packaging, flip-chip COB compared with the normal, can do very small size, can be a good solution to the current congestion, high thermal resistance problems, to achieve a high current density and uniformity. In the future, Mini/Micro LED also needs the cooperation of COB technology.——Micro/Mini LED


Finally, Li Mantie responded to the company's response to the Sino US trade war. He said the company's export business accounted for about 70%, of which the United States accounted for about 30% of the business. At present, the company is also adjusting its sales strategy, with the help of COB to open up the domestic market, the company's COB business popularity continues to rise, is expected to increase COB revenue in the future, the next two years, the domestic business share is estimated to exceed 50%.——Micro/Mini LED
