PlayNitride Micro LED mass production time Plessey roadmap to 2023

November 7, 2019, by Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

Micro LED and mini LED display could disrupt the whole display industry due to their benefits of high brightness, wide color gamut, low power consumption, and fast response time. Our survey found that the micro and mini LED displays are gaining momentum. The number of enterprises working on micro and mini LED has increased to over 170 in 2019 from 120 last year.

PlayNitride is a fast growing company focusing on micro LED displays. Recently, I traveled to Taiwan and met PlayNitride’s CEO, Dr. Li and learned about their micro LED mass production time. This is reported in the recently published Touch and Emerging Display November 2019 report.

Plessey is a UK-based company focusing on micro LED displays. We covered Plessey in the January 2019 Touch and Emerging Display monthly report. Recently, I met with Plessey’s president, Mr. Mike Lee and learned about Plessey’s roadmap to 2023. This is reported in the recently published Touch and Emerging Display November 2019 report.

ARM TechCon 2019 conference day-one review

October 8, 2019, by Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

I just returned from the ARM TechCon 2019 conference in San Jose Convention Center. Today is the first day of the 3-day conference. It was my honor to meet you in person.

ARM was founded in 1990 and was acquired by Softbank in 2016. ARM is a unique semiconductor company because it doesn’t make any chips, but rather license its technologies to other semiconductor companies and OEMs, such as Apple, Samsung, Intel, AMD, Qualcomm, Nvidia, Huawei, Microsoft, Facebook, Pixelworks, etc. ARM’s technology is famous for its low power consumption and small footprint, thus they are widely adopted in smart phones, tablet PCs, smart watches, IoT devices, etc.

This is the 15th anniversary of this ARM conference, over 3000 attendees are expected this year. ARM’s CEO Mr. Simon Segars gave a keynote presentation titled “The New Era of Compute”. He discussed the ARM ecosystem and indicated over 150 billion chips have used ARM’s technologies in them. And that is just the beginning, we can expect to see another 50 billion in the next 2 years.

Why Japan restricts polyimide to South Korea

July 15, 2019, By Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

On June 30th, 2019, Japanese government announced trade restriction of three materials to South Korea. Under proposed changes to export rules, Japanese suppliers would need to apply for approval for each contract to sell specific chemicals to South Korean buyers.

The three materials are polyimide, Hydrogen Fluoride, and photo resistant. All these materials are critical for displays and semiconductor manufacturing.

In the newly published “Touch and Emerging Display monthly report”, Touch Display Research Inc., a market research and consulting firm, analyzed polyimide for display applications.

The report also discussed the polyimide material for foldable cover lens applications, and the suppliers in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and USA.

In the Flexible Display and Flexible Touch 2018 Report, 3rd edition, Touch Display Research forecasted flexible, curved and foldable display will have over $75 billion revenue, which will be about 36% market share in 2027.
