Today, the ubiquitous smartphone is typically the engine of a VR headset, encouraging mass adoption. As VR technologies advance, however, several display requirements must be met to achieve a desirable state of presence and improve the user experience.
Applied Materials AKT Display group recently completed its participation at FPD International 2013 in Pacifico Yokohama and among the highlights of the largest display trade show in Japan were advanced high resolution solutions for mobility and televisions.
Display devices that require higher resolution are typically greater than 300 pixels-per-inch and call for a change at the transistor level to a higher mobility material. Click here to learn more about current smartphone resolution and where it's headed. In order to accommodate more pixels for higher resolution, traditional amorphous silicon (a-Si)-based transistors can be made smaller but have to compensate by using more power to maintain picture quality ultimately leaving less power dedicated to battery life. I can't think of anyone on the planet who wants to sacrifice battery life. Fortunately, we have a solution! Metal oxide (MoX) and low temperature polysilicon (LTPS) -based transistors can scale down the transistor size using low power while meeting the higher mobility requirements that consumers demand in the latest mobility gadgets.
Have you ever watched Jennifer Aniston making a call on her mobile phone on the show, Friends? It is the size of a breadbasket! Clearly the mobile phone world has changed, but where do we go from here?
This year is an important and exciting year for the display industry. The leading display companies including BOE Technology Group, Co. are responding to strong consumer demand for next-generation televisions and mobile devices which require higher performance, longer battery life and thinner form factors. The leading display makers are also responding to inflection points in their product roadmaps as new materials and technologies such as metal oxide and large area low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) are required in the manufacturing of faster and smaller thin film transistors.
Applied Materials was presented with the prestigious IEEE Corporate Innovation Award by IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional association dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, at the IEEE Honors Ceremony in San Diego, California on June 29, 2013.
I’m delighted to share that Applied Materials is being recognized by the renowned engineering authority IEEE with the 2013 Corporate Innovation Award for the company’s leadership in innovative plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition technology for flat panel display manufacturing.
