For example, LCD manufacturer Newhaven Display can customize its passive-matrix
displays to include a built-in temperature compensation circuit, a cost efficient onboard thermal sensitive circuit that adjusts the display's contrast automatically with changes in the ambient temperature.
The increased demand for AMOLEDs in 2009 not only contributed to the annual growth of the OLED market as a whole, but also led to it overtaking passive-matrix
(PM)OLED revenues for the first time, with US$537 million in annual revenue compared to PMOLED revenues of US$291 million.
SNMD), for the manufacture and sale of full-color passive-matrix
OLED display devices in a specific model mobile telephone.
Screens: There generally are two types of laptop screens: The less expensive and less attractive is a passive-matrix
, dual-scan screen; the more expensive and higher quality one is an active-matrix screen, which produces more accurate colors, greater contrast and wider viewing angles.
Of the several color notebooks available, some utilize passive-matrix
color technology while others use active matrix.
Notebooks with active-matrix color displays cost about $2,000 more than those with monochrome displays, while passive-matrix
displays add about $700.
Having worked with Pioneer for a number of years to support their passive-matrix
OLED display business, we are pleased to enter into this new business arrangement with Pioneer for their use of our proprietary UniversalPHOLED materials and technology in OLED lighting products," said Steven V.
While the AMOLED market has increased in both shipments and revenues, passive-matrix
(PM)OLED did not grow from 2008 to 2009, as a result of the shift from clam-shell style handsets that use PMOLED to high-end smartphones.
Like LCDs, OLEDs fall into two broad categories, passive-matrix
and active-matrix displays.
Two types are available: passive-matrix
The specific product segments analyzed are Passive-Matrix
OLEDs, and Active-Matrix OLEDs.
monochrome and color panels can handle animation and simulations but not motion video.
