Japan Display Inc. (JDI) has started shipments of 8.9-inch Wide-QXGA
(2,560 x 1,600 pixels) low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) TFT-LCD
modules in September 2013.
A 7.0-inch Wide-UXGA (1,200 x 1,920 pixels) LTPS TFT-LCD module has
been in mass production since June, 2013, according to the company.
To date, most conventional tablet devices have employed amorphous
silicon (a-Si) TFT-LCD technology, resulting in displays with low
pixel density, wide dead-band areas, and high power consumption.
According to JDI's design simulation, the LTPS TFT-LCD technology has
contributed to 40-50% less power consumption and about 30% narrower
dead-band width compared to conventional designs for a-Si TFT-LCDs.
The 7.0-inch Wide-UXGA TFT-LCD has pixel density of 323ppi, and the
8.9-inch Wide-QXGA TFT-LCD is 339ppi. JDI?s in-plane switching (IPS)
technology realizes wider viewing angles, a higher contrast ratio and
less color shift. The combination of IPS, high-resolution and high
brightness of 500cd/m2 contribute to vivid images for small fonts and
high quality pictures.
Since there are fewer LCD drivers, JDI's LTPS TFT-LCD technology
contributes to 70-80% less power consumption of the LCD driving
system than conventional designs for a-Si TFT-LCDs. In addition, JDI
claims that its high-transmissive pixel design minimizes also
backlight power consumption by approximately 40% less compared to
conventional designs for a-Si TFT-LCDs.
The technology is also able to achieve about 30% narrower dead-band
width than conventional designs for a-Si TFT-LCDs.
