Business description: Iridigm produces revolutionary reflective displays for mobile applications. Based on years of research conducted at MIT, Iridigm’s Interference Modulator (iMoD) technology provides a new class of capabilities that other flat panel display technologies have yet to achieve. Iridigm will focus on building display components for mobile devices, such as PDAs, digital cameras, GPS, advanced pagers, cell phones and other wireless Internet devices. All of these portable applications share the need for low power, paper-like flat panel displays that can convey rich, full-color information in any lighting condition. Iridigm's products are iMoD Matrix display components that are fully compatible with existing LCD module integration techniques. This enables end product makers to procure iMoD displays directly from existing LCD module vendors, thus lowering the risk and effort to adopt this new technology. This also allows companies who manufacture display modules to offer a higher quality, lower cost technology to their standing customer base.
