PanelSemi in Taiwan has launched the world's first flexible Active-Matrix (AM) miniLED display available as a foundry.
Primary is a 55-inch flexible display that weighs just 1kg and is only 1mm thick with a 360-degrees viewing angle. The display can transform into concave, convex, s-curve, cylinder, and rollable versions.
The core of the display is Active-Matrix (AM) on TFT panel technology that can bond each LED, sensor, and semiconductor intelligently. It comes with a display curving and seamless tiling in 9-inch bricks for a larger display that is easy to assemble. It is also eco-friendly as four hours of use only requires one 10Ah power bank.
"As the world's first company to offer the panel foundry business model, we are continuously innovating to build a comprehensive TFT-LCD and semiconductors ecosystem. Primary is the culmination of our innovation that we believe will provide infinite opportunities for different businesses, through a high-speed and immersive visual experience for users," said Titus Chang, Vice President AM Mini-LED Display at PanelSemi.
PanelSemi has been providing the Primary display in commercial advertising, robotic, and subway applications for the Japanese market and the high-end boardroom applications. A cylinder display to show beverage advertisements helps the company create a realistic image. Another use case showcases a human-height virtual character on a cylindrical display to assist animators (above).
"As a system integrator, we are used to square and flat displays. With the Primary inner-curved display, we design a special cave to create a feeling of drones flying inside the tunnel. In the future, we are also discussing the possibility of developing a bender and steeper e-sport track design for a more engaging visual experience," said PH Lin, President of Space4M.
The Active-Matrix technology is key to the panel foundry approach, enabling the company to smooth the integration process of both software and hardware to customer requirements. PanelSemi can also work with new technological systems from third parties, such as photomask design, process development, glass input development, and the improvement of efficiency and yield rate.
