IGNIS Design Engineer to present paper at PRIME 2017 Wed, 15 Feb 2017 20:34:37 +0000

Jafar Talebzadeh, IGNIS Innovation’s Principal Analog Mixed Signal IC Design Engineer, is going to present a paper at the PRIME 2017 conference in Bariloche, Argentina (Feb. 20-23). His paper title is “Design of a Delayless Feedback Path Free 2nd-order Two-Path Time-Interleaved Discrete-Time Delta-Sigma Modulator – a New Approach”. An Abstract of Jafar’s paper follows:


“This paper presents the design procedure for a 2nd-order two-path Discrete-Time Time-Interleaved (DTTI) Delta Sigma modulator from a conventional single-loop 2nd-order Discrete-Time (DT) Delta Sigma modulator through the use of time domain equations and time-interleaving concepts. The resulting modulator is free from the delayless feedback path and has only one set of integrators. The delayless feedback path issue in Time-Interleaved (TI) Delta Sigma modulators is a critical restriction for the implementation of TI Delta Sigma modulators and is effectively eliminated through the use of the approach proposed in this paper. The DTTI Delta Sigma modulator requires only three op-amps and two quantizers both of which work concurrently, in comparison to the single-loop DT counterpart that also deploys two op-amps. For an OverSampling Ratio (OSR) of 16 and a clock frequency of 640MHz, our simulation results show a maximum Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) for the DTTI Delta Sigma modulator to be 70.5dB with an input bandwidth of 20MHz which has 15dB improvement in comparison to its single-loop, single-path DT counterpart”.

Director of Engineering to present paper at ICDT 2017 Thu, 09 Feb 2017 16:07:31 +0000

Dr. Nino Zahirovic, IGNIS Innovation’s Director of Engineering, will be presenting a paper at the International Conference on Display Technology (ICDT) in Fuzhou, China (Feb 18-20). His topic is “Metal-oxide backplane integration challenges for OLED TV applications”. An abstract of Nino’s paper follows:

‘Metal-oxide semiconductor technology is the backplane technology of choice for large area AMOLED TV displays. Metal-oxide backplanes have the advantage of scalability and high mobility but suffer from some significant challenges including negative bias instability, non-uniformity, voltage threshold shift, thermal instability, light sensitivity and hysteresis. All of these issues can be significant barriers to widespread adoption of metal-oxide backplanes for OLED displays.


External compensation technology, championed by Ignis Innovation Inc., has enabled one display manufacturer to bring products to market while others still struggle. This talk outlines the optimal application of external compensation technology to solve the challenges of metal-oxide backplanes for OLED TV applications. Particular attention will be paid to which problems must be solved by process optimization and which problems can be tackled effectively by application of external compensation.”

IGNIS President and CTO to speak at OLEDs World Summit 2016 Wed, 14 Sep 2016 19:46:56 +0000

Dr. Reza Chaji, IGNIS Innovation’s President and Chief Technology Officer, will be speaking on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at the OLEDs World Summit in San Diego, CA. His topic is “How to Unlock the Supply Constraint faced by the AMOLED Industry in light of today’s monopoly conditions”. Reza will address how the significant knowhow and technology gap between AMOLED industry leaders and other display suppliers has turned the AMOLED industry into a monopoly market and how the hurdles associated with attaining mass production of OLED displays can be removed. IGNIS believes the solution is a consortium comprised of equipment vendors, driver companies, technology companies and material companies, collaborating to develop a platform for manufacturing. Reza will outline how IGNIS is taking the lead on this development by providing the display driving/design platform for small, medium and large displays and initiating collaboration with other partners to extend the solution to equipment, materials and devices.
