Seoul, South Korea Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is sampling 4.8-inch and 7.0-inch WSVGA mobile displays that specifically target Ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC) and mobile Internet devices (MID). The 4.8-inch display is aimed at wireless broadband Internet and portable navigation systems for consumers, while the 7.0-inch panel targets vertical UMPC markets including children's education and mobile professional applications.
The 4.8-inch display uses Samsung's single-chip display driver that combines a source driver, timing controller, level shifter and LVDS receiver. By using Samsung's latest advanced integration techniques, the overall circuit footprint and component count have been reduced more than any other comparably-sized product, while providing a high-resolution path for manufacturers to upgrade from the WSVGA format to WXGA, said the company. In addition, the 4.8-inch model consumes only 0.9 watts thanks to the company's low-temperature polysilicon implementation.
Key features include:
- Display type: Transmissive micro-reflective
- Mode: 4.8-inch (low-temperature polysilicon); 7.0-inch (amorphous silicon)
- Brightness: 350 nit
- Contrast ratio: 350:1
- Colors: 262 k
- Color saturation: 50% of NTSC
- Viewing angles: 60° (top), 60° (bottom), 65° (left), 65° (right)
- Power consumption: 4.8-inch: 0.9 watts (including panel and backlight); 7.0-inch: 3.6 watts (including panel and backlight)
Samsung is working with Intel Corporation to accelerate market acceptance of UMPC and MID market opportunities, specifically in the field of electronic display reference designs.
The products are on display at the Mobile Internet Community exhibition area at the Intel Developers Forum, April 17-18, 2007.
