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?
