Gilching, Bavaria, Germany, and San Bruno, California, USA

Specializing in perfectly fitting industrial TFT LCD solutions, Display Solution AG was one of Pixel Qi's first partners. Display Solution AG started with Pixel Qi's 10.1" panel in an Open Frame Module and now offers the Pixel Qi 7" sunlight readable low-power LCD which is now in production and available from stock.

The Pixel Qi 7" 1024x600 display delivers full sunlight readability with excellent multi-media capability. This display uses Pixel Qi's award winning technology and provides the "use anywhere" experience of Pixel Qi's earlier display products. The new 7" display is perfect for nearly all professional products and provides a power saving that can reduce the display power by up to 80% and double the battery life of most handheld devices.

The panel is being used in several professional devices like handheld measurement equipment and mobile ruggedized PCs. The feedback from customers has been extremely positive. The display fills a need with its "use anywhere" capability that previously was not addressed.

Norbert Feuchtgruber, CEO of Display Solution AG, said "We've finished the adaptation for the new 7" Pixel Qi TFT to our controller board range and can support all required interfaces like USB, RGB, DVI and Ethernet. Our customers are fascinated from the combination of low power technology and sunlight readability they can get. The 7" size is very popular in the embedded market. We expect many customers will take the opportunity to upgrade their product with this unique Pixel Qi screen."

Dr. Mary Lou Jepsen, CEO and founder of Pixel Qi Corp., said "We are very excited to work with Display Solution AG and continue our successful partnership with our new 7" display. Display Solution's technology and our 7" display will lead to some very successful products that to address new and differentiated markets."
