A new approach removes the need to store complete frame buffers in RAM, thereby reducing RAM size needed to support large displays. This method also allows images to be stored at an optimum resolution, thus reducing the non-volatile memory requirement as well.
Bridgelux claims 'silicon' LED is commercial
News & Analysis  
3/9/2011   1 comment
Bridgelux Inc., a developer of semiconductor technology for solid-state lighting, has said it has demonstrated a light output of 135 lumens per watt from a GaN-on-Si LED. The company claimed that this is the first achievement of "commercial grade" performance from a silicon substrate LED, but said it may take two to three years for products based on the technology to come to market.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
