Display Week is the world's largest exhibition for electronic information display technology. Watch Deqiang Zhang, CEO of Visionox, give his keynote address: “OLED Leading to the New Experience of Display”.
Thirty-one years ago, Dr. Ching W. Tang and Steven Van Slyke from Kodak made a historic technology breakthrough, building the first practical organic light-emitting diode (OLED) device. Today, advancements in OLED have made it possible to construct flexible displays, ushering in an era of “Ubiquitous Screens.” As the rapidly developing Internet, IOT, 5G, cloud computing, etc., have already made the “Internet of Everything” become a reality, displays (especially flexible OLED displays) will play a significant role in this technological revolution.
Deqiang Zhang, Ph.D. is a graduate of Tsinghua University and held various management roles at Visionox before becoming the company’s CEO. His field of research is organic optoelectronics. Dr. Zhang has devoted himself to the research and development of OLED process technology, the construction of OLED mass production lines, and product planning in China for 22 years, promoting the industrialization of OLED. He has published over 20 OLED research papers and holds over 30 OLED patents. He received first place in China's coveted “National Award for Technological Invention” in 2011.
Display Week is held annually and organized by the Society for Information Display.
At SID DisplayWeek 2018, China-based OLED maker Visionox demonstrated a wide range of AMOLED and PMOLED solutions. This video focuses on Visionox's Passive-Matrix OLEDs (PMOLEDs), which are relatively simple displays used in a wide arrange of devices - wearables, industrial, commercial and others. Joining us in this video is Ron Mertens, the OLED expert behind http://OLED-Info.com, a knowledge hub that focuses on the OLED market and industry. Ron explains the difference between PMOLEDs and AMOLEDs, the use cases of PMOLEDs and walks us through Visionox's PMOLED devices on display. See more at https://www.oled-info.com/pmoled
UICO is a touch screen technology company that makes all-weather touch screens and touch surfaces for wearables, durables, and IoT smart devices. This video highlights many of their innovative touch screen and touch surface solutions that they demonstrated at SID's DisplayWeek 2017. They show some of the great retail and B2B products that feature their touch screens including an off-the-shelf retail boat GPS fishfinder with a 7" touch screen that they put under a running shower to show touch working with water pouring on the screen and without false touching. They show another device with a 10.1" touchscreen that works with super thick winter gloves. They show that their touch screens work with regular gloves and require no special capacitive tips. UICO shows an array of fitness bands and smart watches in production like Garmin HR+ that use their touch screens so you can swim, shower, and use the device with sweaty fingers. They explain that their patented IP is a combination of software, firmware, algorithms and other aspects of touch screen technology making it possible for touch to work with tons of water, thick gloves, sweat and saline, and through very thick cover lens materials for "industrial-grade" applications. When showing their wearable device solutions including AMOLED and PMOLED on-cell solutions, they boast achieving the lowest power consumption industry-wide.
Binay Bajaj, UICO's Vice President of Marketing, demonstrats a highly-unique implementation of their touch technology in a joystick. The joystick is able to sense the user's hand around it and thus preventing mistakes if the user is not properly engaged. They explain that duraTOUCH surface provides a new level of safety and control. Their touch surfaces work with leather, wood, fabric, plastic and other dielectric materials, and many automobile companies are looking at this solution for touch on car interiors, car doors and trunks, touch on steering wheels and more. Some of UICO's customers are implementing touch on fabric to enable touch controls in various types of clothing worn outdoors for both consumers and the commercial safety and security markets. UICO's touch surfaces, like their touch screens, work with thick gloves, water, sweat, and solve other problems inherent to capacitive touch.
UICO is a full-service, technology and manufacturing company and offers customers complete touch screen solutions and broad customization options. They also showed a 15.6" screen and discussed other larger screens sizes being launched in 2017 and 2018 along with new PMOLED and on-cell solutions. They are located in Silicon Valley and Chicago.
Sunpartner Wysips display technologies are crystal layers for displays that receive solar energy and charge your device. Versions for both reflective and non reflective exist. Filmed at the I-Zone startups and New Tech Demos area at the SID Display Week.
Doppel creates a rhythmic pulse that you feel on the inside of your wrist as a heartbeat like vibration. We do not simply perceive this rhythm, but we entrain to it - a faster rhythm makes us feel more alert, and a slower one calms us down. The effect is similar to listening to upbeat or slower music. But with doppel, there’s no noise and no distraction. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
AU Optronics R&D Manager JJ Lih presents some of AUO's latest displays such as their 5" 1280x720 Foldable Touch AMOLED, 1.4" and 1.2" High Resolution True Circular small bezel AMOLED 454x454 for the Smartwatch industry, 5.5" FHD Super Narrow Border 0.4mm LTPS LCD, 3.5" 480x320 Plastic Flexible Conformable LCD to be available on the market within one year. 12.3" FHD AMOLED for in-car Cluster, 12.3" Free-form LTPS LCD for in-car Cluster. 9" 1280x800 Curved LCD. 8.9" Free-form LCD for Rear-view Mirror. 15.6" QHD 120Hz LTPS LCD for Gaming. 13.3" 4K Ultra-low Power LTPS LCD using lower 15hz frequency. 13.3" 4K Ultra Narrow Border 1.5mm LTPS LCD. 15.6" 4K Ultra Narrow Border 2mm LTPS LCD. AUO also shows their 240Hz World's Highest Refresh Rate Gaming PC Monitor.
Think Silicon NEMA GPU Series and NEMA dc are claimed to be the world’s smallest 2D/2.5D/3D GPU and display controller. They have been specifically designed for area constrained wearable devices, embedded systems and IoT platforms where power consumption and battery life is crucial while still maintaining vibrant graphics and fluid smartphone performance-like user interface performance. The NEMA GPU Series is what Think Silicon claims to be the only GPU which works with SoCs sporting a 32-bit MCU such as the ARM Cortex-M by utilizing the MCU by just 3-4%. Think Silicon's GPU for Embedded silicon footprint can be of 0.1mm2 @ 28nm, has leakage power GPU consumption of 0.07mW. Implementing Think Silicon’s patented compression technologies (TSFBc and TSTXc) limits memory power consumption to just 0.03mW (in DDR-less systems). With Think Silicon’s proprietary graphics API NEMA|GFX and the GUI Developer Toolkit NEMA|GUI, developers can use these tools provided by Think Silicon to create their individual Graphical User Interface in a fraction of time. Tools and the GPU Bitstream (NEMA|Bits) are available for free to download at http://think-silicon.com
