SID Vehicle Display and Interface 2018 conference review

September 29, 2018, by Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

I just returned from the SID Vehicle Display and Interface 2018 conference in Detroit, Michigan. It was my honor to meet some of you in person.

This year’s conference had record high attendees—approximately 500 industry professionals. I recall when I spoke at this conference about 10 years ago regarding touch screen, there were approximately 100 attendees. This growth is another reflection of the automotive industry’s adoption of advanced technologies.

Mr. Silviu Papa, co-chair of this conference, and CEO of Automotive Display, gave a summary presentation of the 25th years history of this Vehicle Display conference.

AMOLED Microdisplay above 1000 ppi high resolution on glass

June 8, 2018, by Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D.

Previously most high resolution (>1000 ppi) AMOLED microdisplay need to be built on Silicon backplanes. Due to the high price of Silicon backplanes, the new trend is to build high resolution (>1000 ppi) microdisplay on glass substrate.

Recently, several display manufacturers have demonstrated >1000 ppi resolution AMOLED microdisplay on glass.  In the recently published “Touch and Emerging Display Monthly Report,” Touch Display Research Inc., a market research and consulting firm, analyzed the microdisplays with >1000ppi high resolution and on low cost glass substrate, and pointed out the leaders.

Apple confirmed flexible AMOLED for iPhone X today

Sept 12th, 2017, By Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D., CEO and Principal Analyst at Touch Display Research Inc.

On September 12, 2017, Apple announced the highly anticipated new iPhones: iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 plus. The iPhone X is the most expensive one among all three, since it uses a 5.8-inch flexible AMOLED display, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus use the main stream LCD.

Apple likes the benefits of flexible AMOLED displays: thinness, light weight, potentially low power, and curved form factor for almost edge-less design.

Figure 1: Apple announced iPhone X

As we forecasted about 2 years ago, in the “Touch and Emerging Display December 2015 report”, also in the CNBC article by Anita Balakrishnan which quoted Touch Display Research, “Touch Display Research forecasted Apple will adopt AMOLED for iPhone in 2017/2018 time frame. The current global AMOLED capacity is not enough to support Apple iPhone. That’s why we estimate the adoption to occur in the 2017/2018 time frame. Touch Display Research believes the investment on OLED fab-capacity-expansion from LG and Samsung will soon materialize.”

Now our forecast became reality. Sorry about tooting our own horn, but these are the facts. We are good at forecast.

Figure 2. Touch Display Research accurately forecast Apple iPhone to adopt AMOLED 2 years ago

We also accurately forecasted 4K OLED TV available time, 2 years ahead. On Jan 25, 2013 press release, we announced that “Touch Display Research forecast Ultra HD (4K) resolution AMOLED TV will be on the market by 2015”. “Although AMOLED with FHD resolution is available currently, 4K is considered the high end for TV resolution, even though 4K content is still limited,” said Dr. Jennifer Colegrove, President and analyst at Touch Display Research. “56-inch 4K resolution is just 79 ppi (pixel per inch), which is easily achievable. The challenges are how to increase yield, have good uniformity, have long lifetime, and reduce the manufacturing cost.”

LG’s 65” 4K OLED TV became commercially available in Q1 2015, our forecast becomes reality in 2 years.

Touch Display Research has a good reputation of accurate forecast.

In the “Touch and Emerging Display report”, June 2013 issue, page 45, Touch Display Research forecasted “Apple will adopt AMOLED within 18 months”.

With the Apple Watch announced in Sept 2014 (available since April 2015), our forecast becomes reality in 18 months.
