In this perspective, MagnaChip’s first announced partner is Elan Microelectronics, a developer of smart Human Machine Interface (HMI) applications, including capacitive touchscreen controllers, capacitive trackpads, and fingerprint sensors. The two companies aim to bring Elan’s stylus technologies to both rigid and flexible OLED displays. Currently, Elan supports pen protocols defined by Microsoft, Wacom, and Huawei and has enabled stylus features on smartphones, tablets, and Notebook PCs for Out-Cell, On-Cell and In-Cell LCDs.
MagnaChip expects the collaboration with Elan to improve its OLED DDIC technologies for next-generation applications by supporting Elan’s development of de facto industry standard stylus solutions optimized for its OLED display drivers.
