Pixtronix, Chimei Innolux Debut MEMS Display Prototype
ANDOVER, Mass., Oct. 31, 2011 — Pixtronix Inc. and Chimei Innolux Corp. (CMI) have announced the joint development of 5-in. diagonal microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) display prototypes. The displays were demonstrated at FPD International 2011 Oct. 26-28 in Yokohama, Japan.
The two companies previously announced jointly developed 2.5-in. diagonal prototypes at FPD International 2010. Since then, they have worked together to build a MEMS display twice the size and four times the resolution.
The new displays, which use Pixtronix proprietary MEMS technology, were built by CMI. They offer the lowest power consumption at the best image quality for all applications, according to the companies, achieving >135% NTSC color gamut, >170° view angles, a better than 3000:1 contrast ratio and 24-bit color depth, all at a 75% average power reduction versus LCD displays.
Pixtronix develops and licenses low-power multimedia display technologies.
CMI manufactures TFT-LCD display products.
