Behind The Tech: OLED Displays from LCD Display Module Manufacturers

When it comes to digital display tech, you’ll likely hear of three major terms: LCD, LED, and Plasma. You see of a lot of TVs, for example, bear these tags at your local appliance dealers. But have you ever heard of OLED before?

While it may sound like entirely new tech, OLED really isn’t that novel. It has been in the consumer electronics market for the past 14 years in some form or another, particularly for mobile phones. Times have changed, however, and OLED has already conquered TV sets from Samsung’s to LG’s, as well as offerings from various LCD display module manufacturers like Microtips Technology. However, what makes OLED better than a typical LED or LCD TV?

From Air Traffic Control to LCD Module: Evolution of Capacitive Touch

Capacitive touch is the pioneer of touchscreen technology, dating back to the mid-1960s and paving the way for other succeeding technologies. It remains the most widely used touchscreen technology today, from LCD module displays to consumer tablets and smartphones. Before all these, however, capacitive touch helped to keep air travel safer.

Eric Arthur Johnson designed the first touchscreen in 1965 at the Royal Radar Establishment in the U.K. for air traffic control. The device naturally was a far cry from today’s touchscreens. The first models could only process commands one touch at a time. By today’s standards, certainly not quite ideal for the task of coordinating with dozens of planes in airspace.
