Porotech wins People’s Choice Award for Best New Display Component
Porotech (a spin off from the Cambridge Centre for Gallium Nitride at the UK’s University of Cambridge that has developed porous GaN material) has won the People’s Choice Award for Best New Display Component at Display Week 2023 in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
What is claimed to be the first single-panel, full-color micro-display suitable for augmented reality (AR) applications, the micro-display is based on Porotech’s Dynamic Pixel Tuning (DPT) technology, where DPT micro-LED pixels can emit any visible color when driven with a specific current density. Having already demonstrated how a DPT pixel can create a full range of visible colors, Porotech unveiled the new active-matrix 0.26-inch micro-LED display offering 1280x720 resolution, which utilizes a proprietary driving method developed by Porotech that rapidly displays red, green and blue light to enable a full-color RGB display and richly saturated colors.
“This new single-panel full-color micro-display marks a significant milestone for Porotech and the entire micro-LED industry, as only DPT pixels can meet the specification, performance, reliability and cost required for AR glasses,” reckons Porotech founder & CEO Tongtong Zhu. “Also, Porotech’s DPT technology opens the market for additional display applications using micro-LEDs beyond AR/VR, including smart watches, smart phones, tablets, flat-panel TVs to large-panel displays for commercial outdoor signage.”
