Toshiba American Electronic Components, Inc. has announced the world's first 2.1" reflective low-temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) thin film transistor (TFT) Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) (phew...)
The LTPS TFT LCDs (yikes) utilize an innovative technology that embeds multiple static random access memory (SRAM) cells within each red, green and blue (RGB) dot in the LCD array.
Each of the SRAM cells integrated into the LCD can hold one bit of data (per RGB). Viewing stored data such as email and still pictures with eight colors will not utilize the peripheral circuitry of the display or require that information be sent to the LCD dot.
And what does all this confounding gibberish mean to the rest of us?
-The LCD's power consumption in standby mode is cut by approximately 50 percent to lower than 1.4 milliwatts (mW).
-As a result, overall standby time for cellular phones is raised by 23 percent, from 350 to 430 hours (based on a typical battery specification of 3.3V, 650mAh).
Toshiba intends to incorporate this technology into cellular phones in the fourth quarter of 2001. Cellular phones are the most ideal candidates for these new displays because the displays are static and they are often in standby mode.
