New crystalline structure yields reliable thin-film transistors "In summary, we found a new crystalline structure of IGZO with c-axis alignment and named it CAAC. The CAAC IGZO-TFTs are highly reliable and have an extremely low off-state current. In the future, we will link these features to the mass production of low-power-consumption displays and other applications such as new memory devices and normally-off processors." via SPIE

CMI and AUO continue to benefit from product differentiation "CMI has been focusing on producing the three different panel sizes in order to help China-based TV vendors stay competitive in China's TV market as well as to help itself make up for losses. ...AUO meanwhile is focused on producing 39- and 50-inch TV panels in hope that it may also bump up its profits." via DigiTimes

Department of Defense Task Force Report: The Role of Autonomy in DoD Systems "Methods for communicating with unmanned systems continue to improve, with advances in natural language (see Section 3.14 below) and higher resolution display technology. However, communication of the system state, or the visibility of what the robot is doing and why, to improve trust remains an open question. Multi-modal displays are being actively researched to combat the tendency to overload an operator’s visual channel by displaying all information on the operator control unit screen. " via Federation of American Scientists

Casio QV-10, the first consumer LCD digital camera, lauded as 'essential' to tech history "Though digital cameras in the 90s couldn't come close to their film-based counterparts in terms of image quality, the 1.8-inch color display marked the first time people were able to view and delete their photos on the go. Groundbreaking as it was, however, it didn't necessarily go down well with everyone at the time — read this review from 1996 for image samples and impressions." via TheVerge

Do you need display panels? Ask Jason. I'm the managing editor but I also have very good contacts to source panels. Just let me know what you need: jason@displayalliance.com

iPhone 5 in-cell panel technology receives mixed responses "Some observers say inc-cell touch panels still have a low production yield rate and may not be widely adopted by other vendors in the next 2-3 years, but others believe the technology has set a new standard for smartphones." via DigiTimes

Reflective OutLook: Shades of Gray or Colorful? "When it comes to E Ink, it isn't necessarily all about color, notes University of Cincinnati's Jason Heikenfeld, who has served as a guest editor for Information Display (and is also a founder of e-Paper up-and-comer Gamma Dynamics, mentioned later on). "We should maintain excitement about the continued expansion of monochrome e-Paper products," he says. "A quiet revolution continues to take place there. Color-video e-Paper will also have its day, but today we should be impressed with E Ink's continued product growth and diversification."" via Society for Information Display

Technicolor and Portrait Displays Launch PC Display Color Certification Program "By following the program’s specifications and passing a series of product tests, next generation displays will meet the same color criteria used by Technicolor when producing Hollywood movies and other media and entertainment." via Display Central

Samsung Switches To RGB OLED Pixels In Note II "Samsung has pushed OLED technology in their handheld devices for some time. Most often Samsung has used the inferior PenTile pixel structure that reduces pixel sharpness but in the new Galaxy Note II Samsung has switched to RGB OLED pixels – although a variant. No more pixel sharing, no more fuzzy text. Hooray." via Flat Panels HD

The NEMO project concludes, new soluble OLED materials developed "NEMO was a large €29 million project, co-funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The project's scope included emitter materials, charge transport materials and new adhesives for reliable encapsulation of each OLED component." via OLED-Info

Global e-Paper Display Industry Report "The report profiles 36 companies including many key and niche players such as Acreo AB, AU Optronics Corporation, SiPix Imaging, Inc., E Ink Holdings, Inc., Fujitsu Laboratories Limited, Gamma Dynamics, LLC, Industrial Technology Research Institute, Kent Displays, Inc., NTERA, Inc., Pervasive Displays, Inc., Plastic Logic Ltd., Polymer Vision Ltd., QualComm MEMS Technologies, Samsung LCD Netherlands R&D Center, Seiko Epson Corporation, and Zikon, Inc." via ReportLinker

The Agony and Ecstacy of NextGen - The Air Traffic Control System Of The Future "Airbus, the aircraft manufacturing subsidiary of EADS, recently published its latest installment of the Future by Airbus and signaled the company’s vision of looking beyond aircraft design to how its products will be operated with the aviation system. ...US manufacturers will be at a disadvantage if leadership in ATC modernization is centered outside our borders. Congress should beware that “he who defines the architecture dominates the market.” If in doubt, ask Bill Gates." via Forbes

Renesas DevCon 2012 conference "DevCon 2012 (October 22-25 in Orange County, California) will be a four-day event encapsulating an environment of valuable technical information exchange, which will include personalized direct and interactive access to Renesas’ technology experts and partners from around the world. ...Topics will include LCD basics; newer LCD technologies and advancements; advanced display features to consider when designing with AMLCDs..." via Renesas DevCon
