Building display on silicon has been explored for its advantages of low power, high resolution and low cost of manufacturing. Using silicon allows complex and high-density circuits to be build on the same substrate as the display itself, eliminating off-chip interconnects to realize a Display-on-Chip (DOC). In addition, dense layout rules of CMOS processes allow pixels to be placed very close together. Regardless of reflective (Liquid-Crystal-on-Silicon (LCoS)) or emissive (organic light-emitting device (OLED)) displays, the aperture ratio typically of greater than 90% is attainable for most CMOS processes.
