Taiwanese display vendor TPO Displays Corp. launched yesterday a low-cost display module for handsets that meet mobile phone manufacturers' performance and cost reduction requirements.
TPO's 1.8-inch QQVGA (Quarter Video Graphics Array) Low Temperature Poly Silicon TFT-Liquid Crystal Display adopts the smallest die-size IC for the QQVGA LCD panel segment, passing on savings to vendors in a high-volume market, the company said in a statement.
The QQVGA solution adopts one of the smallest IC driver sizes in this market segment, creating the opportunity to optimize on cost. The smaller die size enables a module design with minimal space requirements in the handset.
The display module features 128x160 resolution at 262K colors, and has standard CPU and RGB interfaces, making it a universal design applicable to a range of customers, TPO said.
"We see the telecom market expanding at a high rate, as manufacturers continue diversifying their product lineups and consumers add more digital devices to their lifestyle. As a supplier of displays for this telecom market, we seek to follow market trends and develop solutions that meet the requirements of both our customers and end consumers," TPO Senior Vice President Andre Krebbers said.
"Already we have seen a broad market acceptance of our LTPS products, including in the value-end parts of the markets. This latest 1.8-inch QQVGA module confirms the ability to create products matching the evolving needs of our customers."
According to a DisplaySearch report, shipments of LTPS TFT LCD modules are taking an increasingly important position for both main displays and sub-displays for mobile phones.
TPO's 1.8-inch QQVGA module leverages the benefits of low-temperature polysilicon production to provide better product performance. The LTPS production process uses benefits garnered after amorphous silicon has been heated up and allowed to cool down, crystallizing into more stable and higher performing polysilicon, TPO said.
The polysilicon materials, when applied in display modules, generally offer a brighter display with lower power consumption on a smaller footprint, with a more robust product performance over lifetime, it added.
A leading provider of mobile display solutions and technologies, TPO is building on the complementary capabilities and competencies of founding partners Toppoly Optoelectronics Corp. and Philips MDS.
Headquartered in Chunan, Taiwan, TPO is one of the largest TFT manufacturers in the world with 15,400 employees. TPO's international network comprises over 13 offices in over 12 countries across four continents.
