The short battery lifetime between charges of portable display devices such as smartwatches, smartphones or notebooks is one of the major issues in user dissatisfaction today.
This white paper demonstrates that the choice of the thin film transistor (TFT) material has a significant impact on battery lifetime. Here it is shown that organic TFTs offer a unique capability to reduce display power consumption by as much as 90% and so significantly extend the battery lifetime on many CE display based devices.
It will be shown that this is due to the leading low leakage currents offered by the organic TFT in combination with the ability to use simplified TFT pixel drive circuits due to their superior electrical stability.
This cannot be achieved with any other TFT technology platform and as such, places oTFTs at the forefront for implementation as the TFT platform of choice to realise battery life extension in many portable LCD and OLED display based products.
