The plant was opened in collaboration with Foxlink (also known as Cheng Uei Precision Industry Co. Ltd.) and it will produce mirasol displays on “generation 4.5 glass.”
By using reflective technology, Qualcomm’s mirasol displays can provide superior outdoor visibility while significantly reducing power consumption. It’s said that, as long as a display image is unchanged, the power usage is close to zero.
The new displays also have a rapid refresh rate, thus videos and multimedia applications should work perfectly with them.
All these attributes make mirasol displays perfect for small devices like cell phones, MIDs and so on.
“The mirasol facility is game-changing for Qualcomm MEMS Technologies, as its capabilities move us closer to delivering next generation mirasol displays to the market with increased efficiency and in greater quantities. With our technical expertise and Foxlink’s background in manufacturing, we are well positioned to enable the commercialization of mirasol display technology; that’s the charter of the mirasol fabrication plant,” declared Jim Cathey, vice president of business development for Qualcomm MEMS Technologies.
