TFT-LCD manufacturer Chimei Innolux and Pixtronix, a company specialising in developing and licensing multi- media display technologies that are based on low power have jointly developed diagonal MEMS display prototypes measuring 5 in.
The displays are made from the proprietary MEMS technology called the PerfectLight Display, from Pixtronix and have been developed by CMI. The companies will demonstrate the product at the FPD International 2011, which is an exhibition exclusively for flat panel displays held at Japan.
The salient features of the 5 in. display are a contrast ratio of 3,000:1, 135% NTSC colour gamut, 24-bit colour depth, a viewing angle of more than 170˚, and 75% less power consumption than LCD displays. According to Ander Kebbers who is the Vice President of the Mobile Device BU of Chimei Innolux, the new MEMS display technology from Pixtronix will enable consumers of the multimedia market to enjoy more benefits and the collaboration between both companies will also help in the commercialization of this technology.
Both companies have previously launched the 2.5 in. diagonal prototypes at the FPD International in the year 2010. Another display by name the PerfectLight display is also based on the MEMS technology from Pixtronix and also comprises 24-bit colour depth, 100 µs shutter response time, 135% NTSC colour gamut and 75% less power consumption than LCD displays.
