October 30, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Technology is always bushing at its own limits, striving for more, innovating and discovering. And many a patent is applied for every day, and most of them come from companies that are less noticeable than Apple or Samsung.

One such company that lies masked, only to grow visible with some cutting-edge technology is AUO or AU Optronics. Their latest claim to fame is a new mobile phone touch panel of 4.46-inches and having the world’s thinnest border.

The company utilized proprietary technology that allows manufacturing of amazingly thin borders, and employs low-temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) technology. The LTPS technology can be used to make a display with a border width of only 1mm when placed on the module surface.

The 4.46-inch display provides a resolution of 720p and the display area available is increased by the 1mm thick bezel. Moreover, the 1mm thick border makes the video and images appear larger.

The company also sang praises of its other display technologies like AMOLED, IGZO and AHVA. I’m sure AMOLED is nothing new to you, as most of you must have heard it; AHVA is Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle.

AUO has been able to develop AHVA panels that range from 3-inches to 15.6-inches. These screens can be seen in use on digital cameras, smartphones, e-readers, and car displays, tablets, and ultrabooks.

The company is currently mass producing their 4.97-inch full HD resolution AHVA Mobile Display. This one carries 1080 x 1920 resolution with 443ppi.

There’s also aan AMOLED panel of 4.65-inches in the company’s kitty. It has a resolution of up to 317ppi.

AUO’s other massive development is the larger 10-inch panel which uses IGZO technology. The company is aims to shoot the panel at tablets, as the panel carries a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and promises lower power consumption due to better screen transmittance.
