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.

How much will Samsung’s micro LED TV cost?

September 10, 2018  By Jennifer Colegrove, Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

After demonstrated the micro LED digital signage “The Wall” at CES 2018, Samsung also showcased The Wall at IFA 2018 in Berlin. Now the rumors suggested that Samsung will bring micro LED TV to consumer’s home in 2019. Now the question is: how much will Samsung’s micro LED TV cost?

In the recently published “Micro & mini LED Technologies Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2018 Report”, Touch Display Research Inc., a market research and consulting firm, analyzed all the methods to fabricate micro and mini LED displays along with their supply chains. More than 120 companies and research institutes working on micro LED and mini LED display are profiled in the report.

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, fast response time, etc. In this report, Touch Display Research calculated the BOM (Bill of Materials) of micro LED displays for AR/VR, smart watch, smart phone, digital signage/TV. We also compared the BOM of micro LED vs. mini LED displays, compared the BOM of three color LEDs vs. color conversion methods.

The cost of Samsung’s micro LED TV is calculated in the Micro & mini LED 2018 report. Based on the BOM calculation, business strategy recommendations are provided in this report.

All the methods to fabricate micro and mini LED displays along with their supply chains are analyzed and put into 15 method categories.

The “Micro & mini LED Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2018-2028 Report” is available immediately.

Interview Plastic Logic’s CEO about flexible display

August 28th, 2018 By Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

This week, Touch Display Research interviewed Plastic Logic’s CEO, Mr. Tim Burne, about their flexible e-paper display and flexible touch screen. Mr. Tim Burne joined Plastic Logic in 2013 and became the CEO in 2015. Mr. Burne indicated Plastic Logic’s organic TFT (OTFT) backplane is very flexible and robust, thus it is very suitable for the curved wearable devices and many other applications.

3M’s metal mesh touch screen patents and lawsuits interview

August 24, 2018  By Jennifer Colegrove, Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

This week 3M announced a patent infringement lawsuit again a touch panel supplier Tovis, its subsidiary Tovis North America, and Scientific Games Corporation. The suit alleges that certain Tovis touch display products which are used by Scientific Games in their gaming machines infringe 3M’s U.S. Patents 8,179,381; 9,823,786; 8,274,494; and 8,704,799.

In the “ITO-replacement: transparent conductor market 2017 report, Seventh edition”, Touch Display Research profiled over three hundred companies working on non-ITO transparent conductors. Metal mesh is one of the most popular transparent conductor materials and is widely used in projected capacitive touch sensors for smart phones, active pen touch tablets and notebooks, and in large-format, digital touch signage.

Figure: ITO Replacement 2017 Report

Source: Touch Display Research Inc., ITO-Replacement Report, February 2017

Earlier this year, 3M filed a similar patent infringement lawsuit against Elo Touch Solutions Inc.

“3M invests substantially in research and development to create innovative products for our customers,” said Makoto Ishii, vice president and general manager, 3M Display Materials and Systems Division. “We will defend our intellectual property protecting those investments against unauthorized use and infringement by metal mesh manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers, and others making use of 3M’s intellectual property rights.”

Touch Display Research interviewed Mr. Scott Hagermoser, Global Business Manager of 3M Touch Systems about metal mesh patents and the lawsuit. I asked that since metal mesh is a widely used ITO-replacement transparent conductor, what was the optimal result that 3M expected from this legal action. Mr. Hagermoser indicated, “3M doesn’t want to be overly disruptive to the touch industry; we are not a patent troll organization. We offer to license our metal mesh technologies so we can get compensation for our investment.”

Metal mesh suppliers have different patterns and structures, such as one film with two sides of metal mesh, or two films where each side has one metal mesh.  I asked if it was possible that some metal mesh companies could avoid 3M’s metal mesh patents. Mr. Hagermoser indicated 3M had many claims in their metal mesh patents, and the details have to be left to the lawyers and engineers to figure out.

I asked if 3M is also suing Microsoft for the metal mesh, Mr. Hagermoser said that he won’t comment on that.

I’ve been the first industry analyst to write market research reports about the touch screen industry since 2006. When I saw the trends of new transparent conductive material used on touch screens, I published the industry’s first “ITO-Replacement: Transparent Conductor Market Report” in 2013. Many touch screen manufacturers, display manufacturers, OEM/ODMs are my good industry friends. I don’t like to see them sue each other. However, on the other hand, I don’t like the thought of intellectual property theft. We should play the game fairly. I recommend when your company manufactures or purchases metal mesh touch screens, you inquire if that touch screen is clear from others patents.
