Xerox spins off dpiX for TFT sensors and displays

Xerox (Stamford, CT) has launched its dpiX company to develo¥and market high-resolution thin-film-transistor (TFT) based image sensors and displays. The operation is a spin-off of the electronics and imaging laboratory of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC, Palo Alto, CA). Researchers at PARC have demonstrated page-size flat-panel displays with 7 million pixels; displays on current lapto¥computers have roughly a half-million pixels.

Xerox spins off dpiX for TFT sensors and displays

Xerox (Stamford, CT) has launched its dpiX company to develo¥and market high-resolution thin-film-transistor (TFT) based image sensors and displays. The operation is a spin-off of the electronics and imaging laboratory of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC, Palo Alto, CA). Researchers at PARC have demonstrated page-size flat-panel displays with 7 million pixels; displays on current lapto¥computers have roughly a half-million pixels. The company is using the same TFT technology for two-dimensional image-sensor arrays and is supplying x-ray imaging panels for the medical-diagnostic market as its first products. Such digital image capture allows direct data transmission to a radiologist at a distant consulting institution. The dpiX operation will introduce its first display product late this year--an active-matrix liquid-crystal display (AMLCD) for military aircraft cockpits. The firm has an AMLCD marketing and development agreement for defense applications with display-maker Planar Advance (Beaverton, OR).
