MIP is one of the power saving technologies using the unique LTPS TFT characteristics to design memory circuit within pixel to store the image data, so the source driver and corresponding interface in ASIC may be stopped when panel is in standby mode. This is a technology useful for transflective or reflective LCD displays.
Chimei Innolux has been developing MIP technology since 2004 and introduced its first design for mobile phone's sub-panel TFT display sized at 1.36-inch QQVGA TFT display in June, 2007. With further enhancements, Chimei Innolux has successfully upgraded this technology to mobile phone main-display with its first demo panel sized at a 3.47-inch in 640x360(nHD), 211 ppi resolution, achieving 1mW power consumption in MIP mode.
With the implementation of MIP technology into the display products, Chimei Innolux is taking the lead to provide its customers with the advanced LTPS display solution featuring a decorative solution with low power consumption up to 211 ppi for segments like mobile phone, smart phone, automotive, e-book, handy GPS displays etc.
