PlayNitride launches new displays at SID 2020

PlayNitride introduced several new display technologies at SID DisplayWeek 2020. First up we have the PixeLED Matrix, which is a tiled microLED display module based display, each produced on its own PCB.

Each PixeLED module is made from 16 pixels (4X4), and can reach pitches of 0.3-0.4 mm. PlayNitride says that this technology can compete with mini LED displays, and says that it achieves a superior contrast and can also be fitted on curved surfaces. PixeLED displays can be used for TV displays, for commercial signage displays and also for automotive lighting. The display can currently achieve a maximum brightness of 2,000 nits.



PlayNitride estimates that PixeLED Matrix displays will be validated in the second-half of 2020.


PlayNitride also introduced a 5.04" 480x320 (114 PPI) microLED display that can be tiled to create larger displays. Unlike PixeLED, these are not made on PCB, these are likely made on TFT (LTPS) backplanes. In the above video you can see the border between the displays, hopefully when commercialized PlayNitride will be able to remove the seam completely. This technology was developed together with TianMa.

In the video you can also see a 7.56" 720x480 (again, 114 PPI) flexible microLED display, developed also with Tianma. PlayNitride is also showing a 7.56" 720x480 60% transparent display - seems to be the exact same display that was shown in SID 2019.
