Huawei HiSilicon to mass produce OLED driver chips in first half of 2022

Published

on


Huawei HiSilicon has its self-developed OLED driver chip in the trial production stage. The company will reportedly begin its mass production in the first half of next year with a production capacity of around 200,000 to 300,000 units per month.

The OLED chip will be mass-produced at 40nm in China and it will begin at the start of 2022. This mass production also confirms that the Chinese tech giant is currently performing trail production of the OLED driver ICs.

Huawei developing its own resources to reduce its dependence on the US

It was been found that there are no restrictions regarding the production of OLED driver ICs in the United States. While Huawei might have already decided not to deal with the US over anything now.

Also, some of the analysts believe that Huawei is taking over the OLED driver ICs to break the monopoly of overseas manufacturers. Further, the company wants to increase the localization of chips and ensure the security of the supply chain.

Not just Huawei, there are other Chinese companies too that are preparing to be independent and make their own OLED chips. This crucial step of self-developing the chips will break the companies dependence and will be a major advantage in production.

How driver chips are important for OLED displays?

With the growing technology, the demand for a good quality OLED display has increased over time. Many smartphones nowadays feature an OLED panel for an immersive viewing experience.

The OLED driver IC is an important part of these displays and is responsible for image quality which depends on its ability to control current. It also controls different scenarios such as interface type, pixel resolution, and other performance indicators.

Compared to the other kinds of displays such as AMOLED and LCD displays, the OLED panel provides smoother animation, takes a lower power consumption, and offers rich colors. This display is usually featured in the flagship devices and is relatively costlier than those other two.

Huawei’s competition for OLED driver chips

Huawei Hisilicon currently has the production capacity for 40nm chips, while other chip manufacturer like Samsung, TSMC, and UMC got 40nm and 28nm processes for making OLED driver ICs.

Moreover, the Chinese tech giant is not only facing chip shortage problems, but it also has to deal with the competition with the Chinese and overseas companies. However, it remains to be seen how the company delivers quality OLED driver chips and compete with the major chip manufacturers in the market.

Huawei Cloud UCS

Today, the 2021 Huawei Connect event takes place in China on online platforms. Huawei’s rotating chairman Xu Zhijun initiates the vent with his speech about “Accelerating Digital Development with Continuous Innovation”. At the event, Huawei officially launched the Huawei Cloud UCS (“ubiquitous cloud-native service). It’s the first cloud-native model with seamless cross-cloud and cross-region capabilities.

This cloud-native integrated Huawei product will bring a uniformly controllable system to its applications. Furthermore, it ensures a steady operation flow experience while accelerating the digital transformation in the related field.

Huawei Cloud UCS

At the moment, we don’t have more info about Huawei Cloud UCS but as the event proceeds, the company will surely reveal its specifications.

For now, the Chinese tech firm has over 2.3 million cloud developers working with its 14K consulting, and about 6K technical partners. With its 4,500 cloud market products, the company became an important platform for digitalization. Moving with the report, CEO of Huawei Cloud and President of Consumer Cloud Services Zhang Pingan believes that the company is helping users in achieving digitalization bringing all comfort on fingertips.

Huawei will continue to lead in 5G Massive MIMO: Huawei CMO

Published

on

By

On August 31, Huawei held the first wireless media salon and MBBF2021 pre-communication meeting. Gan Bin, the chief marketing officer of Huawei’s wireless product line delivered a keynote speech on the topic ‘Huawei continues to lead and open’s up a new green track for 5G MIMO’.

Gan Bin mentioned that the company continues to lead with breakthrough innovations in ultra-large-scale antenna arrays, opening a new green track for Huawei 5G Massive MIMO. This is achieved by making full use of sky resources and maximizing the green energy conservation and experience coverage.

Not only Huawei, but every other industry is preparing for energy conservation and emission reduction with the goal of making an environment-friendly ecosystem. The International Telecommunication Union and the global operators are promoting a ‘dual carbon’ action plan.

Huawei has been leading the industry since 2014 when the company introduced Massive MIMO into the 4G networks. The Massive MIMO was combined with the large bandwidth for an energy efficiency improvement of more than 20 times compared with the normal LTE 4T4R.

The company claims that it has found a new breakthrough innovation in the field of Massive MIMO. In the current scenario, energy-saving can be achieved by continuous optimization of active parts such as RF and power amplifier.

The Chinese tech giant has found its own way of optimizing the resources to achieve green energy conservation. It includes ultra-large antenna arrays, maximized sky-surface utilization, green energy conservation, and experience coverage.

Other things also play an important role in the entry saving are the utilization of the sky. The MM wave covers on 0.3 windward area, which is smaller than the low frequency skyward windward area of 0.7 square meters. The companies should try to an active smaller windward area in order to save energy.

Maximize green energy saving 

When the terminal receives the same power, the base station can be configured with lower power transmission to reduce the energy consumption of the base station. Let’s suppose the MM is configured with 160W power transmission, which can achieve the coverage of 320W. According to analysis, the new green version of MM can reduce energy consumption by more than 50%.

Maximize the coverage experience

The new green version of MM has the ability to increase the downlink coverage by 3db. Due to the enhancement of the base station receiving the performance, the uplink coverage will also increase by 3db. The average experience of the edge users of the new green version of MM can be improved by 30%.

This was an example of the integration of Massive MIMO and the green energy-saving requirements. The company will continue its research on making the 5G services more efficient while conserving the energy to an adequate level. In addition to upgrading the personal experience, finding new capabilities in the industry, and more.
