MagnaChip and ELAN Microelectronics Announce Partnership to Expand OLED Display Capabilities for Next-Generation Applications
The partnership seeks to build upon the recent growth and market penetration of OLED displays in areas such as smartphones, mobile devices, tablets and automotive applications, ranging from navigation and infotainment screens to brake light and interior lighting systems. OLED technology enables screens to display rich and highly saturated colors while emitting low power consumption. Flexible OLED display driver ICs (DDIC) enable curved screens for smartphones, tablets and other devices.
Further, customer demand for stylus input on screens continues to grow and MagnaChip, as the world's largest independent volume provider of OLED DDIC components, with more than 400 million units shipped, will collaborate in seeking to bring ELAN's stylus technologies to both rigid and flexible OLED Displays through this partnership. Currently, ELAN supports pen protocols defined by
Specifically, MagnaChip expects the collaboration with ELAN to improve its OLED DDIC technologies for next-generation applications by supporting ELAN's development of de facto industry standard stylus solutions optimized for its OLED display drivers.
"By working with MagnaChip we believe we can develop optimized OLED display solutions that can become de-facto industry standards," said
"By working with industry leaders such as ELAN, our goal is to create combined hardware offerings that provide industry leading product features and benefits for our customers," said YJ Kim, CEO of MagnaChip Semiconductor. "And by collaborating with other industry leaders as part of our broader industry initiative, we believe MagnaChip can help accelerate product innovation, shorten time to market, and provide compelling OLED display solutions to the consumer, communications, computing, industrial and automotive markets."
