The Tianma Group introduces a new 12.1" freeform display for automotive applications



Chino, CA, May 16, 2018 – The Tianma Group has developed a new “freeform” display module, designed to allow for greater flexibility and creativity in integrating digital display technology with established analog elements. Tianma will demonstrate a freeform automotive module with inner holes and ultra-narrow border at Display Week 2018.

Tianma’s freeform display is achieved using VGIA (Virtual Gate Inline Pixel Array) technology to create a gate fan outline in the display active area without circuits added to the left and right borders of the display. By applying these technology advances, Tianma can create displays in virtually any shape a customer desires. 

Ideal for automotive applications such as in-dash instrument clusters, the 12.3-inch a-Si HD freeform slim module with inner-holes and an ultra-narrow border was developed by Tianma Micro-electronics Co.  In this design, the holes in the left and right sides of the unit allow for easy incorporation of a mechanical pointer with the LCD display background.

Tianma achieved a narrow 1.1-mm border by utilizing the freeform process and VGIA technology. The 12.3” freeform module also eliminates “V” mura (cloudiness) around the hole. 

The new automotive freeform display technology, along with The Tianma Group’s expansive family of displays and technologies, will be showcased at Display Week 2018, May 22 to 24 in Los Angeles, California, USA, in Booth 1005.
