AT CES this week, Rohinni demonstrated its micro-LED technology, and provided a glimpse at new backlight technology it's working on for the LCD display panels used in phones. While most LED chips are around 1mm, Rohinni's micro-LEDs are many times smaller and can be placed precisely on thin, flexible plastic sheets. Rohinni is working with unnamed partners to use this technology in LCD backlights, which could reduce panel thickness, allowing thinner phones. Also, much like high-end "LED" home TVs, it would allow local dimming, which would improve contrast and lower power consumption, bringing most of the benefits of OLED technology to LCD panels. Micro-LEDs can also be printed on thin, flexible plastic sheets in any configuration. They're currently used for the thinnest laptop keyboard backlights, and have many other potential applications in mobile devices.
