Kyocera has launched the latest MIP Technology (Memory in Pixel) for a new solution for LCDs on the market. The Japanese ceramic expert combines three essential factors: The displays are outstanding with low power consumption, high image quality and fast switching times.
The technology allows new applications, like smart watches, healthcare devices, sub displays of DSLR or IC recorders.
To expand the battery lifetime all pixels include a SRAM memory. This results in a low power consumption for static image down to 5µW. By the power saving pixel selection method, only the selected pixel were driven. Which is different to the line selection method.
With wide viewing angle, high contrast and the avoidance of parallax shadows an excellent visibility and readability is achieved. Compared to conventional displays the reflection layer is integrated inside. Therefore, the light must only pass twice times a polarizer. This is an advantage for readability at bright sunlight and outdoor usage.
