Better than iPad 3 Displays: Next Generation Pixel Qi screens

by mary_lou_jepsen on April 21st, 2012

We at Pixel Qi loved the Apple iPad3 screen, but were shocked by the overheating reports and the massive power draw (8Watts?!). The battery of the iPad is dedicated driving the display – about 90% of the battery seems to be used for this one purpose. We at Pixel Qi are dedicated to low power screens – our screens are the cornerstone of thinner and lighter devices that will work inside and in direct sunlight. We can now announce that we can match or exceed the image quality of the screen in the iPad3. We have a new architecture that matches the resolution of the ipad3 screen, and its full image quality including matching or exceeding contrast, color saturation, the viewing angle and so forth with massive power savings. We even added a very low power mode that runs at a full 100X power reduction from the peak power consumed by the iPad3 screen. We are finalizing our partner(s) on the development of this new screen family and the sizes we will make it in. For comparison purposes I show a graph below for 9.7″-10″ tablet sized screens with power consumption highlighted.
