SID 2015 Update

Jun 10 2015

IGNIS Innovation Inc. has demonstrated what an OLED display can achieve, when the quality and user experience do not need to be compromised because of display burn-in effect. The existing approach to reduce the burn-in is to keep the display off most of the time, and/or run the display at lower brightness most of the time, resulting in washed out images at…

True View Display™ – a window to a real world

May 15 2015

“You know you have developed the ultimate display when the users do not see it, but see through the display a realistic world in front of their eyes” said Reza Chaji, IGNIS Innovation Inc. President and CTO. To do so, the display needs to match the real world parameters such as high brightness, infinite contrast, wide colour gamut, high colour precision and smooth motions! While the race to higher Pixels Per Inch (PPI) has become insane with no real practical difference for consumers, the other parameters such as High Dynamic Range (HDR) has been ignored for smartphones. There has been a good reason for it until now; No solution exists to offer such performance, but not anymore! In addition to sluggish response time and poor black level, LCD displays are not practical for HDR smartphones. The backlight modulation increases the display’s thickness significantly! On the other hand, OLED displays can achieve the high brightness need for HDR but at a price of fast aging and high image sticking. Today, we are pleased to announce IGNIS has developed the only viable HDR display with high contrast ratio, high frame rate, wide colour gamut, high colour precision and bit-depth for smartphones. And we are calling it “True View Display™” The True View Display™ removes the boundary between…

At the epicentre of the AMOLED TV development

Apr 23 2015

IGNIS Innovation Inc. has been fortunate to have worked on the right solution for AMOLED TV and other demanding display applications such as automotive, tablet, laptop, etc. Since the early days, we believed that the solution for these applications had to be different from that of small displays. These applications require significantly longer lifetimes, higher yields over a large area, and better performance which cannot be addressed by conventional in-pixel solutions. The IGNIS MaxLife™ solution addresses all these requirements and is ready! Consequently, IGNIS has been at the epicentre of the AMOLED TV development wave highlighted by the number of joint development projects based on its unique solution. IGNIS is very pleased to announce that it will be actively attending SID this year and will demonstrate our latest developments to a select audience.

IGNIS and CSOT collaborate on developing AMOLED Display

May 20 2014

Waterloo, Canada – May 20, 2014 — Shenzhen China Star Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd. (CSOT) and IGNIS Innovation Inc. (IGNIS) announced today that they will collaborate on developing a 5.5-inch HD AMOLED Mobile Display. The display will be based on manufacturing capability and fabrication technology of CSOT and IGNIS MaxLife™ Lite driving scheme. CSOT has demonstrated its capability in manufacturing AMOLED displays for mobile applications using LTPS backplanes. In addition, the IGNIS MaxLife Lite driving scheme, offers high yield, low cost, low-power consumption, and long life which can enable fast production ramp-up of LTPS AMOLED Displays for Mobile applications. IGNIS and CSOT believe the unique combination of their technologies will set a significant milestone for AMOLED Mobile production. About China Star Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd. (“CSOT”) CSOT is a leading hi-tech display company founded on November 16th 2009 and is located in the Guangming New District hi-tech zone, Shenzhen. CSOT is the largest investment as an industrial project in Shenzhen, Guangdong. CSOT took only 17.5 months from beginning construction to entering production, making it the fastest to bring up an 8.5 generation TFT-LCD line so far. Major products include, 26, 32, 46 and 55 inch Liquid crystal displays that are designed and produced on the line with a 100K monthly capacity of glass substrates. In…

Latest updates on IGNIS 55″ AMOLED Display

Mar 06 2014

IGNIS Innovation Inc. has shipped more displays in April especially to China. Since IGNIS technology is proven and ready, it can give the new comers a jump start to surpass the leaders. Not only is the initial uniformity of the IGNIS 55-inch AMOLED displays significantly better than that of existing displays in the market, but also IGNIS MaxLife™ technology integrated in the displays maintains the uniformity overtime despite OLED and backplane aging.

IGNIS has received firm orders for its 55” AMOLED Evaluation Platform

Sep 03 2013

Waterloo, Canada – September 4, 2013 — IGNIS Innovation Inc. announces that it has received firm orders for samples of its 55” Full HD AMOLED display from display manufacturers and OEMs. The display is built using IGNIS’s patented MaxLife™ compensation technology and is designed for display manufacturers and OEMs who want to evaluate the performance of MaxLife technology for use in their own displays and products. The major issues in large area AMOLED displays are cost and lifetime. The low yield, which is caused by complex pixel circuits and a high level of non-uniformities, results in a higher display cost. AMOLED displays can have non-uniformity patterns known as “mura”, resulting in stripes, speckles, or cloudiness in the display. This is due to the manufacturing process of both the Thin Film Transistor (TFT) and the OLED. The current solution is to use complex pixel structures (with multiple TFTs per pixels) known as In-Pixel Compensation (IPC). In addition to limited performance of IPC for non-uniformity compensation, the complex pixel structure results in a higher manufacturing defects and lower yield. Therefore, it is not practical to adopt such an approach for high volume large-area AMOLED displays. Moreover, achieving 2K x 4K AMOLED displays will be difficult with the complex pixel circuits. Thus, adopting a simple solution with high…

IGNIS Announces 20” AMOLED evaluation samples available August 2013

May 21 2013

Waterloo, Canada – May 21, 2013 – IGNIS Innovation Inc. announces samples of its 20” 1296 × 768 pixel AMOLED display will be available starting in August 2013. The display is built with IGNIS’s patented MaxLife™ compensation technology and is designed for display manufacturers who want to evaluate the performance of MaxLife technology for use in their own displays. Low-volume production runs of the display are also available for medical imaging, scientific imaging, and other demanding applications that require fast response time, wide viewing angle, and ultra-high contrast. Typically AMOLED displays suffer from image sticking, where images can be permanently burned into the display. This is caused by the instability of both the Thin Film Transistor (TFT) and the OLED. This isn’t a problem for mobile phones, which are replaced every couple of years. However larger displays are expected to have perfect uniformity over many years. AMOLED displays can also have non-uniformity patterns known as “Mura”, resulting in stripes, speckles, or cloudiness in the display. This is due to the manufacturing process of both the TFT and the OLED. Currently the solution is to discard those displays with bad Mura. “IGNIS MaxLife technology continuously measures every pixel in the display and compensates for even the smallest shift in performance, making it completely uniform and completely…
