CEA LETI: Micro-LEDs Future Applications and Current Challenges

Micro LEDs are gaining traction in the LED industry since it is a technology that industry experts view as capable of breaking LCDs low light efficiency, and achieve “real LED display” technology. Current LCD designs are very inefficient in light output, with only an estimated 10% light emission. Light emitted from the LED backlight module has to travel through polarization filters, TFT, liquid crystals, and color filters, about 90% of light is trapped in these layered structures.

OKI Malaysia Introduces Based-LED Printers for Medium and Large Enterprises

OKI Malaysia has introduced new printers based on digital LED print technology to strengthen its A4 mono workgroup offerings targeted at medium to large enterprises. The new models are the B721dn and B731dn, both of which are monochrome, and the ES7400, which is a color multi-function model. The B721dn prints at the speed of up to 47ppm (pages per minute) for A4 pages and the B731dn at up to 52ppm. The first page takes less than five seconds to print for both printers. The two printers support 18,000-page and 25,000-page toner cartridges but only the B731dn can also ha...
