JDI Claims 2-3 Times Improvement in Cold IPS Speed

Japan Display (JDI) has developed a new LCD display using an IPS panel, with a drive method enhancing the response speed. Response speed is said to be between two and three times faster than standard IPS panel displays in low temperature conditions.

Prototype specifications of two displays have been provided. The first is a 10″ unit for automotive devices. It has 2880 x 1080 resolution (308 ppi) and response times (full on/full off) of 95ms at -30 deg and 6ms at 25 deg . JDI’s second display – a 2.5″ unit for camera applications – has 720 x 480 resolution (293 ppi). Its response speeds are 55ms at -20 deg and 10ms at 25 deg .

Although still a prototype, JDI intends to begin mass-production of the new display by the end of its 2015 fiscal year. The display will be exhibited at Display Innovation 2014 in Yokohama, Japan (29th – 31st October).

Automotive makers are very demanding on the issue of temperatures, which can be a big issue for LCD displays, which may need heaters to keep them in an acceptable range of performance. It’s not really surprising, when you consider that LCs are something between a solid and a liquid. (BR)
