Paper Abstract

This paper describes a free moving flipping pixel, which is bi-stable at 0 degrees and 180 degrees. A two dimensional array of such pixels provides a high-resolution, direct view, reflective display with extremely low power consumption at full video and zero power consumption for still images. Furthermore, the new display overcomes many of the other shortcomings of LCD display technology, especially in the realm of ruggedized displays. It provides visibility in both direct sunlight and dim environments. It is operational at a wide temperature range and provides high durability to mechanical shock/vibration and RFI/EMI. Flixel is also investigating other uses of its 180 degrees flip technology including high density shutter arrays, and filter arrays providing the ability to control direct radiation on a target with very high spatial and temporal resolutions.
