Pixel Qi wins top IEEE award!

by mary_lou_jepsen on April 28th, 2010

IEEE has given Pixel Qi one of its highest honors. (IEEE is the largest professional group in the world focused on technology advancement)

Today Pixel Qi received the 2010 IEEE ACE Award for “Emerging Technology offering the greatest potential for financial success” at the IEEE Awards Banquet (held in San Jose during the Embedded System Conference)
We won this award amidst a dazzling array of other emerging technologies and an extraordinary group of other short-listed top nominees including Google Chrome, NanoGaN, Intrinsity, and the IBM/Russian Railways collaboration.

We are somewhat stunned and deeply honored.

Other progress to report:

Our screens are for sale and have been for sale for several months now in products, but in specialized products that aren’t sold in stores yet. These products are for professional use and bundled with, for example, monthly services; they might not ever be sold in stores. Our initial manufacturing partner did get slowed down in the midst of the economic crises and that did effect our ability to ramp to the schedule our higher volume customers wanted. We are beyond this now thanks to strong pull from these customers: some of the largest computer companies in the world and also from the broader community who want our screens now! We are scaling to multiple manufacturers (and beginning to ramp production) to the meet the strong demand. (added note: this will still take some time to work through the system to get into stores.)

Look for our DIY partner announcement shortly. We have been working on the details of this and are excited about it.

Also: we have wider viewing angle technology working and will bring that into high volume production as soon as this fall. We have been working with a variety of touch screen suppliers and touch integration/assembly houses. Touch integration with our screens is already working via a variety of solutions including projected capacitance touch and is available now in our products.

    Congrats to the award.

    I have some technical thing for you to comment on or consider for future work. I have a KindleDX, its format is perfect for reading academic papers and books. However, I noticed that I can not use it in direct sunlight, where the display works best. In summer, in direct sun out on campus, the display heats up too much and is unable to refresh the screen correctly. Once I hold it such that the display is in my shadow, it works again.

    Is your technology also this sensitive to heat? If so, this is certainly something that needs work. I’d appreciate your comment since I want to buy the NotionInk Adam. I sold my OLPC when I got my Kindle, so I can’t test it :-)

  2. Just to retain my screen name, I feel bound to request that you replace the word “effect” which means accomplish with “affect” which means change. The topic and the product are so compelling that I feel driven to induce perfecting the report in order that it, too, meets the high standards you achieve in those other parts of your work.
