Japan Display Begins preparations for Mass Production of Pixel Eyes for high resolution tablets
Japan Display has completed development of elemental technologies for Pixel Eyes LCD module for high resolution tablets and begun preparations for mass production. This will enable Pixel Eyes products to be introduced to high resolution tablets featuring more than 7-inch wide QXGA (1,600 x 2,560 pixels) and 4K2K (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) displays in addition to smartphones with displays in the 5-inch class. Pixel Eyes is a product incorporating JDI’s original technology that implants the touch sensor functions into display panels. It eliminates the need for the touch panel that has conventionally incorporated as a separate component.
As such the display module will be thinner in size, lighter in weight and higher in transmissivity. It will also open the way not only for a comfortable touch operation experience but also a broad range of user interfaces, including stylus entry. Japan Display’s Mobara Plant (Mobara-shi, Chiba, Japan) is now making preparations and adjusting its sixth-generation (1,500 x 1,850mm glass substrate) low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) line with a view to starting mass production of Pixel Eyes for high resolution tablets in autumn 2014.
