Japan Display announces mass production of advanced 5-inch Class WQHD LCD Module
Japan Display today announced the mass production start of an advanced 5-inch class low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) LCD module with wide quad-HD resolution format (WQHD, 1440×2560 pixels). This LCD module is Japan Display’s proprietary second-generation Pixel Eyes, which has thinner borders, a deeper black level, and can even operate with wet fingers. In conventional LCD modules, display flicker at low refresh frequency (30Hz) has been a problem. By adopting new materials, Japan Display solved this problem in this new module.
With these improved materials, LCD driving frequency can be changed from 60Hz to 30Hz depending on the display image signal without affecting the image quality, and correspondingly the panel power consumption is reduced. The driver IC in this LCD module has an embedded upscaling function from FHD to WQHD, making it possible to display WQHD images from an inherently-designed FHD system. Lastly, JDI is committed to continuously offering superior display products featuring advanced technologies, based on our core LTPS technology.
