The patented NCM technology, developed by Mitsubishi Electric and already proven in electronic projectors, is now being incorporated into Optrex's 8.4-inch to 15-inch diagonal digital TFT LCDs for flat panel displays.

The company said NCM technology utilizes a color transformation algorithm, implemented in hardware, which provides real-time, on-the-fly processing, on a pixel-by-pixel basis, to precisely match the colors specified in a data source. This enables reproduction of even subtle colors such as pastels and flesh tones, according to the company.

In addition, NCM technology provides independent control of six colors without one color influencing any of the others. It supports 18-bit and 24-bit color and full motion video, and compensates for any color shifts caused by LCD components such as CCFLs and optical films.

The technology also delivers several other key advantages. For instance, it doesn't require a significant amount of LCD driving voltage, large amounts of circuitry or memory-intensive resources. The NCM algorithm is implemented in a small portion of the LCD's timing controller (TCON) and requires only a small amount of ROM.

Conventional color management techniques handle hue, saturation and intensity (HSI) as a single entity, without separating the chromic (H) and achromatic (SI) aspects of the data, unlike NCM, which provides independent control over the chromatic and achromatic characteristics, so the brightness level of one color on a transmissive LCD doesn't impact the other colors.

Optrex TFT LCD modules equipped with Natural Color Matrix technology include an 8.4-inch XGA module (P/N T-51639D084J-FW-A-AB), a 10.4-inch SVGA module (P/N T-51944D104J-FW-A-AA), a 12.1-inch SVGA module (P/N T-51866D121J-FW-A-A), and three 15-inch XGA modules (P/N T-51863D150J-FW-A-AA, T-51863D150J-FW-A-AB and T-51863D150J-FW-A-AD).

MANHASSET, N.Y. — Toshiba said Thursday (Jan.6) it is about to start shipping its 0.85-inch, 2-Gbyte hard drive aimed at use in smartphones and other mobile devices.

In addition, the company said it will start shipping a 4-Gbyte version of the drive about the middle of the year with capacities increasing to as much as 8 GB in 2006.

As portable digital devices are becoming increasingly sophisticated, the demand for high-performance, small form factor HDDs has given the storage industry a tremendous challenge,” Scott Maccabe, a Toshiba Storage Systems vice president, said in a statement. Toshiba has pushed the envelope of HDD technology with this thumb-sized drive.”

The company side the hard drives, which it sells to device vendors, weighs less than three grams. Besides smartphones, the company said it expected the drives to be attractive for use in devices such as PDAs, digital cameras and media players.
