The Fraunhofer FEP, in collaboration with GlobalFoundries Dresden Module One and digades, developed an ultra-low power color OLED microdisplay. The researchers at the Fraunhofer say that this display consumes the least power compared to all available microdisplays.
The new microdisplay was developed as part of the Backplane project, funded by the German government (SWMA grant number100392259). The researchers presented a prototype display that features two primary colors and a QVGA (320x240) resolution. The display is based on the Fraunhofer's existing OLED-on-silicon technology, which up until now was used to create monochrome microdisplays.
