Seven Common Automotive Display Technologies


Seven Common Automotive Display Technologies

In recent years, there has been rapid technological advancement in automotive devices, particularly in the field of automotive display technology. We have a strong research and development team with technical support, capable of providing end-to-end services, reducing communication costs, and achieving integrated designs. The entry threshold of the automotive industry is relatively high, requiring certification of IATF16949 to ensure that products meet industry standards and requirements. Additionally, managing and controlling the supply chain is a major challenge to meet the demand of tenure for supply. Also, it strives to provide high-quality products, ensuring stability and reliability in the supply chain. Material selection is rigorously designed to fit the requirements of long-term usage.
In the contexts, we focus on crucial technologies in automotive display technology, including Smart window, Anti-vandalism, System board, Automotive TFT, etc. It aims to provide readers deeper comprehension of the applications of technology in the automotive field.
All-in-Black & Mirror Mirror
An electronic rearview mirror for vehicles is a type of rearview mirror that typically utilizes a camera and display to show the rear view of the vehicle, providing improved visibility and driving safety. It allows the display to be seamlessly integrated within the mirror housing, enhancing aesthetics and integration. In automotive technology, electronic rearview mirrors have been widely adopted and offer advantages to enhance driving safety. Compared to traditional rearview mirrors, electronic rearview mirrors provide a wider field of view and offer clearer, more vivid images. They also allow for adjustments in brightness, contrast, and other settings, ensuring clear visibility even in dark or adverse weather conditions. This enables drivers to easily spot obstacles or other vehicles, thereby enhancing driving safety.

Smart window
Smart window is a glass display with adjustable transparency. By controlling the transparency and reflectivity of the glass display, Smart window can meet different needs. For example, when a vehicle is driving under strong sunlight, Smart window can adjust to become darker, reducing the temperature and light intensity inside the vehicle, improving comfort and energy efficiency. This technology is an important direction for future vehicle development.

QLED  Taillight and Logo branding Technology
QLED is a new type of quantum dot light-emitting diode display technology, which can achieve high brightness, high contrast, and high color saturation display effects through quantum dot luminescent materials. It has outstanding marketing/ logo branding and multiple advantages such as weather resistance and low energy consumption. Additionally, it can self-illuminate, save space, and reduce maintenance costs.

Anti-vandalism Reaching IK10 Level
Anti-vandalism technology is applied to electric vehicle charging stations by using specially treated protective glass. It provides a high level of impact resistance, reaching IK10 rating. It increases the durability and resistance to damage of the charging stations, offering a robust solution for public charging stations or other environments where there is a risk of vandalism or accidental impacts.

Shorten Developing Procedure of Embedded Board
The system board that has built-in GUI aims to greatly shorten developing process and achieve display controlling function. It is applicable to automotive instrument panels, electronic control units (ECUs), intelligent driving systems, electronic braking systems, vehicle safety systems, etc., and provides users with better driving experiences.

Automotive TFT Passing IATF16949 Verification
Automotive TFT can be used not only as a vehicle instrument cluster to display vehicle information such as vehicle speed, engine speed, fuel and water temperature, but also for entertainment systems (displaying movies, music and other entertainment content), navigation systems (displaying maps and route information), and climate control (displaying temperature, fan speed, etc.). This technology has also passed the IATF16949 global automotive industry quality management system verification.

Housing Integration & Waterproof Reaching IP66 Level
The feature of Housing integration technology is to integrate the product's casing with internal electronic components, effectively reducing communication costs, and having a higher degree of fit for waterproof, dustproof, and durability, achieving IP66 level. It meets the requirements of the automotive industry for lightweight, intelligent, and high-performance products.

In summary, in recent years, there has been rapid technological progress in automotive devices, with various innovative automotive display technologies emerging. This article introduces several key technologies, including Mirror MirrorSmart window, Anti-vandalism, and embedded board. These technologies have important significance and advantages in the field of vehicles, such as providing better visibility and driving safety, adjusting light and energy-saving effects, providing high brightness and color saturation, improving durability and anti-destructive ability, integrating functional modules, and enhancing system stability. These innovative technologies bring more intelligent, efficient, and reliable product designs to the automotive industry, and the most suitable panel technology should be selected according to different uses and requirements.
