While such growth is impressive, the AMOLED shipments pale next to small-sized AMLCDs
, which are forecasted to rise to 1.75 billion units by 2014 from 1.3 billion in 2009.
Philips says the new company has the potential to develop into a full joint venture incorporating all AMLCD
activities of both companies.
Further, L-3's new colour AMLCD
assembly will directly replace the monochromatic display unit used at present and improve the Apache's target acquisition and night vision sensor display capabilities.
However, Colegrove said its high cost will likely keep HTC on AMLCD
for most of its phones.
For a subtractive-color AMLCD
, the transmittance of a two-primary display is at least two to four times that of an otherwise equivalent full-color display, and the manufacturing cost is 39% lower (Franklin & Reinhart, 1997).
Despite the present disparity in price and performance, AMLCDs
have improved greatly over the last few years, and AMLCD
makers continue to spend billions on R&D.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) announced today that its Display Systems unit has received a competitively-awarded firm-fixed price contract from Lockheed Martin to develop a new 5-x-5-inch color Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display (AMLCD
) assembly for the U.S.
Topics include: mobile environment and human-factor considerations for the display, advances in the incumbent active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD
) technologies, as well as mobile display driver electronics and interface technologies.
Like the other members of the CyberDisplay product family based on Kopin's scalable color filter microdisplay architecture, the CyberDisplay SVGA is the world's highest-resolution transmissive active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD
) for its size.
Flat-panel configurations -- led by active-matrix, liquid-crystal displays (AMLCD
) -- dominate the offered products.
Philips and LG say the new company will begin as a manufacturing and technology joint venture and could potentially develop into a full joint venture over time, which would incorporate all of the AMLCD
operations of both companies.
Niche manufacturers now offer smaller, higher resolution VGA AMLCD
displays with up to 640 x 480 pixels.
