PMOLED displays: Forget me not

As technology advances, display technology has come a long way in recent years. You could be forgiven for overlooking passive matrix OLED (PMOLED) displays when all the hype currently is on their active matrix brethren.

PMOLED displays offer better contrast ratios, deeper blacks, and a faster response time compared to their PM LCD counterpart. Unlike active OLED displays, passive OLED displays do not require a thin-film transistor (TFT) array to operate, making them more cost-effective and energy-efficient. This makes them an ideal choice for a wide range of portable devices that run on batteries. With the right device front cover, it is also able to blend in and not appear to be present when not powered, giving the device a flush and clean appearance.

Advantages of OLED Displays

OLED displays offer several advantages over LCDs, including:

  1. Viewing angle: OLED displays do not suffer from having any weak viewing in any particular angle like LCDs due to the liquid crystal nature.

  2. Energy Efficiency: Passive OLED displays are very energy efficient, as they only use power when pixels are lit. This is because the pixels are self-emitting, which means that they don't require a backlight. This results in lower power consumption and longer battery life.

  3. Mechanical profile: Again, since they are not backlit, there is no backlight unit. This means a thinner profile.

  4. Low temperature performance: Liquid crystal fluid reacts differently in a lower temperature environment. No LC fluid, no problem here for OLED.
