Qualcomm acquires a display tech company that may help it advance its development of mirasol displays for smartphones and tablets.
At Ceatec, Hitachi Displays unveils a prototype display, developed with a U.S. company, that uses microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS, technology.
The U.S. chipmaker is set to become Sharp's biggest shareholder when it follows through with the remainder of its $120 million investment.
The company is making the investment through its subsidiary Pixtronix.
Reports suggest that Sharp may soon be under even more financial pressure as production delays result in missed investment deadlines under a $120 million pact.
