Japan Display develops 5.0-inch Full-HD TFT LCD Module with Integrated Touch Functionality Pixel Eyes
Japan Display (JDI) has developed a 5.0-inch Full-HD (1,080 x 1,920 pixels) TFT LCD module with JDI’s proprietary integrated touch functionality” Pixel Eyes”. “Pixel Eyes” detects touch through changes in capacitance between electrodes on the TFT substrate and on the color filter substrate. There are various requirements for LCD module performance in the market today, such as higher resolution, wider viewing angle, higher picture quality, lower power consumption, and thinner module thickness. In addition, higher productivity of touch-based devices is becoming more important to cope with wide and rapid fluctuations in smartphone demand.
“Pixel Eyes” contributes to high productivity because the touch functionality is formed with fewer process steps compared to conventional touch choices. JDI has now succeeded in establishing “Pixel Eyes” and its touch function controller on a production-ready basis for a new 5.0-inch Full-HD TFT LCD module. JDI has a “Pixel Eyes” product lineup in mass production, available in resolution formats of 720HD (720 x 1280 pixels) and qHD (540 x 960 pixels).
