IGNIS Innovation announced that in collaboration with its partners, the company developed a driver chip that incorporates the ability to sense individual pixels on the panel. This new ability integrates into IGNIS' overall external compensation process and can improve the perofrmance and lifetime of AMOLED displays.

IGNIS says that this new IC is already being used on medium sized panels designed for IT and automobile applications.

Ignis' MaxLife external compensation technology continuously measures every pixel in the display and compensates for even the smallest shift in performance (due to burn-in or bad manufacturing issues), making it completely uniform and completely stable. MaxLife can work with a-Si, LTPS and metal-oxide backplanes, and supports both TV-sized displays and small/medium sized panels. In 2016 LG Display licensed IGNIS' technology for its OLED TVs.
