Uni-Pixel working on MEMS film based displays

Posted on Tuesday, October 20 2009 @ 21:06:23 CEST by

EE Times reports Uni-Pixel has announced volume production of its first MEMS film based displays, a new technology that may replace LCD and even OLED. Screens based on this technology can be up to 10x brigther and 60 percent cheaper to manufacture than traditional LCD displays.
Uni-Pixel, Inc. (Woodlands, Texas) recently announced volume production of its first thin-film products. Dubbed "Opcuity," the films are used in time-multiplexed optical shutter (TMOS) displays that can be up to 10 times brighter and 60 percent cheaper to manufacture than LCDs. The films also can be fabricated on the same manufacturing lines as LCDs.

"One of the beauties of our manufacturing process is that it subtracts from existing LCD lines--you just need to remove some equipment that is no longer needed," said Uni-Pixel's CFO James Tassone. "Since we use no red, green and blue sub-pixels, our process is less demanding, requiring only one-third as many thin-film transistors.

"In fact, we can use LCD manufacturing lines that are aging and due to be retired; instead of scraping an aging LCD line, you can retrofit it to make our advanced TMOS displays," Tassone claimed.
