By studying and mimicking nature's processes and structures – a field of study called biomimetics – Qualcomm engineers have developed the nature-inspired IMOD display solution.
Summary of key characteristics of iMoD display technology:
  • Low power consumption – compared to rival emissive technologies;

  • Always On – changing state takes the most energy so the display can be left on;

  • Excellent readability – a contrast ratio similar to a book;

  • Fast response time – fast response time suitable for video playback – an advantage over other reflective display technologies;

  • Slim form factor – no backlight delivers a thinner form factor (less weight also);

  • Scalable – the technology is scalable for larger screen sizes;

  • Compatible with current manufacturing techniques - iMoD displays can be made on existing flat-panel display assembly lines - using existing materials;

  • Wide viewing angle.
