Wrong decision again, for display market, the cost is always above the product performance, not mention the poor performance of mems display.
I have no idea why the high level of Qualcomm never do market research before investment.
I'm a MEMS guy, and I'm interested in seeing how they solve the stiction problem. My understanding is that stiction is the primary reason the Mirasol display hasn't been released. I can see how the PicTronix approach could avoid stiction, but this is a problem you only really see once you're in low volume production and get a sense of how many pixels are stuck.
3000:1 contrast Ratio! I think the human eye canít detect a contrast ratio that big isnít?
This is a real big amount of money to pay for a company. Seems display technology for the mobile phones is a main asset. CDMA technology is dying; Qualcomm must get into new fields and be strong at it to remain the San Diego giant it is.
According to Pixtronic, the power saving is up to 60%. It is dramatic.
Pixtronix technology doesn't seem to be limited to mobile device. What's the show stopper to keep it from widely use in PC monitor and TV?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight Ė as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
