MicroOLED introduces highest pixel density OLED microdisplay

by K C Krishnadas, TechOnline India - January 28, 2012

The new 5.4 mega pixel 0.61 inch diagonal microdisplay gives users SXGA resolution in full color at half the power consumption of competing products, the company claims.

MicroOLED  has introduced a new 5.4 million pixel density 0.61 inch diagonal, low power consumption OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Display) microdisplay on silicon for high picture quality applications such as professional camera and camcorder equipment, night vision systems and head-mounted displays used in surgery.

The 5.4 million-pixel microdisplay with a sub-pixel pitch of 4.7 micrometres by 4.7 micrometres is the highest pixel density OLED microdisplay available today, the company claimed. By doubling the pixel density of comparable products, MicroOLED has eliminated the gap between pixels. With no black matrix present, the resulting image resolution is of the highest quality. This makes the 5.4 million-pixel 0.61 inch diagonal microdisplay most suitable for defense, medical and professional camera applications that demand sharp images with smooth transitional tones. 

High contrast (maximum 100,000:1) and high uniformity (96 per cent) also play key roles in picture quality. Depending on how one drives the OLED microdisplay, it can perform using as low as 0.2W, half the power consumption of other products in its category.  MicroOLED achieves this low level power consumption even when the fully digital video input is embedded.
“We are excited by the market potential of our new 5.4 million pixel density 0.61 inch diagonal OLED microdisplay...Moreover, the current trend in replacing optics with electronics components fits with our ability to produce this exceptional picture quality in miniature format. We see many opportunities opening up in existing applications and new markets as a result,”  said Eric Marcellin-Dibon, CEO of MicroOLED.  

MicroOLED will market the microdisplay to address needs in head-mounted displays used by surgeons, where high resolution and quality of colors and contrast are a must; professional camera and camcorders, where picture quality is key; and night vision applications, where heightened contrast and uniformity enable defense and security professionals to improve the performance of detection and identification equipment. 

It comes in full color (16 million colors), SXGA or monochrome formats (2,560 by 2,048 pixels), both with digital video input and meets the standard environmental operating requirements for military applications.
