The report said that if the two technologies mature and integrate a set of solutions, can significantly reduce the power consumption of mobile devices. Micro LED panel power consumption is only 10% of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel, power-saving effect is quite significant, if Apple future Apple Watch or iPhone products using Micro LED panel, OLED panel can save up to 90% of the power The In addition, the flexible fuel cell can be operated for a long time, and the mobile device can not be charged for a few days.
Researchers at KIST (KoreaInstitute of Science and Technology) have developed groundbreaking fuel cell technology with breakthrough results to develop ultra-lightweight, flexible fuel cell stacks. If the hydrogen fuel cell can replace the lithium-ion battery, further used in wearable devices or UAV products, can significantly enhance the product's battery life. It is also worth noting that IBM's Globalfoundries and Samsung (Samsung) announced the development of 5-nanometer process technology, claiming that compared to 10-nanometer process, the chip performance can be increased by 40%, power consumption A significant reduction of 75%, not only to support artificial intelligence (AI) and the expansion of real (AR), may also help to achieve a few days of mobile devices free of charge target.
TSMC has also said that the 5-nanometer process will enter the risk trial production in 2019, in line with the advanced mobile platform design, and plans in the 5-nanometer process widely used extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology to reduce the complexity of the process. Apple2020 new iPhone will use what kind of low-power high-end wafer process, IBM coalition and TSMC potential will have some contention.
