Buyer behavior
MeasurementBlues   11/15/2013 10:58:15 AM
Buyer behavior indicates that the visual impression and function of smartphones has been shown to heavily influence consumer purchase decisions.

Not so much for teenagers. They want iPhones because their friends have iPhones. They don't really care about the function. It's about fitting in.

I don't know, I know plenty of young'uns that were really impressed with the resolution of new displays in the last couple years in both android and iphone. There's been some compelling competition lately on the display front.

Nice technical comparison!

This was a really good tear-down, showing some unexpected trends and outcomes, and giving a good heads-up on possible near-future trends in compact displays. Thanks!

IGZO's future and Japan Display Inc.

This is a very informative analysis.

While we know that Sharp has been betting big on its IGZO panels, we also know that its premium price  IGZO panels command has prevented them from deeper market penetration the company originally hoped.

Meanwhile, I hear that Japan Display Inc., which consolidated struggling LCD operations of Hitachi, Toshiba and Sony, seems to be doing a lot better than anyone had expected.

We will report more on that later.

Looking forward to where this goes. I never got a chance to see an IGZO up close but I'd like to.

This was really a very good article; I will love to know more about what Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba are doing in the same area.
AMOLED was expected to survive longer in the market but lest see if IGZO can beat it in terms of price and performance.

Display Resolution
LarryM99   11/19/2013 7:41:47 PM
The comment on display resolution was particularly interesting. As they said, it may already be to the point where any more doesn't matter as far as the visuals. The hidden cost to even more resolution is going to be decreased responsiveness as the software has to scale images. All else being equal, that can affect the user experience.

Retina display having lowest PPI
Sanjib.A   11/30/2013 9:55:56 AM
I did not know the Apple's "Retina Display" has the lowest Pixels Per Inch (PPI) as 326 as compared the its competitor's display, where as I thought the opposite...thanks for the insight!!

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
