June 1, 2012 – BUSINESS WIRE — Thin-film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panel maker Hydis Technologies, a subsidiary of E Ink Holdings Inc., will add on-cell touch screen panel (TSP) technology to their LCD technology portfolio.
On-cell touch functionality is embedded in the display rather than assembled as a separate component on top of the display. On-cell touchscreen technologies provide a slim, lightweight display form factor with thinner glass, and lower power consumption. It also enables precise touch due to reduced parallax errors. On-cell touchscreens are mainly used for active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays. More information in: The 4 categories of touch sensors
Hydis is offering the on-cell technology to smartphone and tablet makers.
Hydis created Fringe Field Switching (FFS) technology, which provides a wider viewing angle and color gamut, consumes less power, and offers better high ambient readability on LCDs. Visit www.hydis.com.
