Connected Devices (IoT)

The thinnest light guide that draws the least power lets your device do more with less, and then tell its friends about it

Internet of Things (IoT) Device

Don't forget the humans

Connected devices can differentiate from a crowded field of backlit electronics with brilliant displays that work in direct sun and don’t fight key components for battery life. FLEx systems offer a low-power solution with Memory In Pixel (MIP) functionality. Our LED light guide keeps screens viewable in all environments including direct sunlight using reflective display technology, so your smart devices can connect better with humans.

Low Power LED Front Light

Fewer LEDs

One ultra low-power LED is used in FLEx’s front light, sipping on power only when needed.

Sunlight Readable Reflective LCD

Enhanced Communication

Low power displays provide critical details to users that are interacting with connected devices.

Front Light Panel Power Savings

Maintains Low Power

The battery savings facilitated by FLEx are over 80x improved compared to backlighting reflective displays.

Ultra Thin Front Light vs Backlight

Thinner Devices

FLEx’s film is only 0.05mm thick and requires less volume compared to backlights. In addition, the low power consumption enables smaller battery designs to reduce device size.
