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 stable,” says Dr. Reza Chaji, President and CTO. “It has been manufactured and proven on oxide, polysilicon, and amorphous silicon TFT backplanes
