SAMSUNG Develops High-resolution LCD Mobile Display that Automatically Adjusts Brightness

Samsung Electronics, announced today that it has developed a 2.1” LCD panel for high-end mobile devices that will provide qVGA resolution and comes equipped with sensors designed to adjust brightness to optimize ambient lighting. Screen brightness is automatically adjusted to enhance readability under any lighting condition. Designed for use in high-end mobile phones, PDAs and portable media players, the new panel also has a temperature compensation sensor embedded in its LCD driver IC that maintains a steady operational mode regardless of any temperature change in the surrounding environment. The signal processing function within the display driver IC converts ambient light measurements from the sensors into pulse-width modulation signals. Those PWM signals then automatically signal the LED controller in the LCD backlight unit to adjust the screen brightness to provide optimal readability as outside lighting conditions change. Samsung’s LCD Business is planning to produce the new 2.1” qVGA LCD with ABC capability in the second half of this year.

Can I just say, this is awesome. If the sensors can detect the ambient light, of say, your car with the sun, and adjust its brightness accordingly, this will definately be a hit. I wish my LCD HDTV would be able to do that. As it stands, the default brightness is really bright at night. Kind of hard to watch porn with the wife sleeping if the tv is hugely bright ::rofl:: I like brightness for games, but even though it doesnt glare room light or sunlight, Id like to adjust the brightness itself without my need for it.
