It is sad that there is a significant deal of incorrect information available on the market despite the fact that LCD displays and LED displays are very different from one another. The perplexity can be laid at least somewhat at the feet of the manufacturers. The following is an expansion on what we just said.
LCD is an abbreviation that stands for "liquid crystal display." LCD displays require a backlight because the display technology itself is unable to produce its own source of light. CCFLs, also known as cold cathode fluorescent lamps, were once widely used by manufacturers as backlights; however, these lamps are cumbersome and hazardous to the environment. In the years that followed, as the technology behind light-emitting diodes (LEDs) continued to develop, an increasing number of backlights began utilizing LEDs. Because the manufacturers refer to them as LED TVs or monitors, customers are LED to believe, incorrectly, that they are purchasing LED displays. In spite of this, LED and LCD TVs are both technically just variations on the same thing: liquid crystal displays. Both types of televisions make use of the same fundamental technology, which consists of two layers of polarized glass that permit liquid crystals to both let light through and block it. This technology underlies both types of televisions. In this sense, LED televisions can be thought of as a subcategory of LCD televisions.
Due to their rise in popularity over the past few years, quantum-dot televisions have also attracted a significant amount of attention. To put it more bluntly, it is a completely new kind of LED-backlit LCD TV. The image is crafted to look exactly the same as it would on an LCD panel; the only difference is that the color has been improved through the use of technology known as quantum dots.
When you turn on a standard LCD display, each and every LED on the display lights up, including those that are not required (some places need the display to be black). In an LCD screen, regardless of how excellent the panel is, a very little amount of light will always get through. This is just the nature of the technology. As a consequence of this, it could be challenging to produce a background that is totally dark. The contrast is not as striking as it once was.
Technically speaking, it is possible to create quantum-dot televisions that have complete array backlighting and the capability to dim on a local level. These televisions do an excellent job of providing deeper blacks and more visual uniformity than other televisions. Edge-lit quantum-dot sets are viable; they are thinner, but due to the lack of local dimming, they may exhibit light banding and grayer blacks than conventional quantum-dot sets. This is because edge-lit quantum-dot sets do not use local dimming.
In RGB filters, a QD layer is employed in place of the typical colored photoresists. These filters make use of photo-emissive quantum dot particles rather than colored photoresists. It is the blue light that emanates from the display panel that is responsible for activating the quantum dots. These quantum dots are what provide the primary colors in their purest form. They also help boost the display's brightness and color gamut by lowering the amount of light that is lost and the amount of color crosstalk that occurs within the RGB filters. This helps the display display a wider range of colors. This method is most frequently employed in LED-backlit LCDs; however, it can also be used in other color-filtering display technologies, such as blue/UV AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes), QNED (Quantum nano-emitting diode), and Micro LED display panels. The most prevalent application for this method is in LED-backlit LCDs. The most common use for quantum dots is in LED-backlit LCDs, where they are used as a more cost-effective alternative to organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels.
True LED displays are referred to as micro LED displays, and they do not have any backlighting behind them. It's a recent innovation in the world of flat-panel screens. Individual pixel elements in micro LED displays are arrays of extremely small LEDs, and the displays themselves are known as micro LED displays. Micro-LED displays do not make any concessions in terms of contrast, response rates, or energy economy in order to utilize technology that is more energy efficient.
Micro LEDs are an excellent lighting solution for compact, low-power devices such as smartphones, smartwatches, virtual reality headsets, and augmented reality glasses. Micro LED displays have a much reduced energy consumption compared to conventional LCD systems, yet having an extremely high contrast ratio. As a result of the inorganic nature of its construction, micro-LEDs have a lifespan of more than 100,000 hours.
Although micro LED lighting is manufactured in bulk quantities by Luumii, and although Sony, Samsung, and Konka sell micro LED video walls, micro LED displays have not yet been manufactured in big quantities as of the year 2020. It has been proved that prototypes can be created by companies such as LG, Tianma, PlayNitride, TCL/CSoT, Jasper Display, Jade Bird Display, Plessey Semiconductors Ltd., and Ostendo Technologies, Inc. micro LED panels, which can be used in place of conventional movie screens, are already being made available for purchase by companies like Sony and Freedeo. BOE, Epistar, and Leyard are the three companies that are working toward the mass production of micro LEDs. It is possible to make a micro LED translucent and flexible, much way it is possible to make an OLED.
There is a common misunderstanding that quantum dot displays are the same as the mini-LEDs that are used in LCD backlights. According to our knowLEDge, a mini-LED is nothing more than an expanded version of a micro LED. These lights have a wide range of potential applications, including high-end home theaters, advertising walls, and larger movie screens, among other things. The size of the LEDs is one characteristic that is typically utilized as a differentiating factor between mini-LEDs and micro-LEDs. Both the Micro-LED and the Mini-LED rely on inorganic LEDs as their primary light source. LEDs that fall within the millimeter range are referred to as Mini-LEDs, and LEDs that fall within the micrometer range are referred to as Micro-LEDs. In actual situations, however, there is some leeway for interpretation, and the boundary between right and wrong is not always so black and white. However, it is a commonly held belief that mini-LEDs are significantly larger in size than micro-LEDs, the latter of which are typically less than 100 m in size, and in some cases even less than 50 m.
The size of the display is simply one factor to take into account when talking about Mini-LED and Micro-LED displays in the display market. Additional characteristics of the LEDs are their thickness and their substrates. As a result of the incorporation of LED substrates, mini-LEDs often have a thickness that is greater than 100 micrometers. Despite this, the completed LEDs that are made from micro-LEDs are typically extremely thin because they do not contain a substrate.
A third characteristic that helps differentiate the two is the approach that is taken to manage the LEDs through the use of mass transfer mechanisms.Surface mounting technologies and more conventional pick-and-place assembly procedures are commonly used when fabricating mini-LEDs. There is a maximum limit on the total number of LEDs that can be moved at any given time. Because the use of a heterogeneous target substrate for Micro-LEDs frequently necessitates the movement of millions of LEDs, it is important to give some thought to the possibility of employing a disruptive mass transfer method. As a direct consequence of this, the number of LEDs that need to be transmitted all at once is significantly increased.
It is amazing to observe the many different display technologies that are used to illuminate our world. We have no doubt in our minds that LED and/or LCD displays will play important parts in the next iteration of the metaverse.
