Sanyo Epson Imaging Devices Corporation has announced the development of a 2.2-inch amorphous silicon TFT liquid-crystal display (LCD) that is just 1.1 mm thick, making it ideal for use in mobile phones and other portable devices. The Company succeeded in developing this 1.1-mm-thick amorphous TFT LCD by using ultra-thin components, including the backlight, polarizing plate and glass substrate. These features are considered to be ideal for displaying video and watching “One Seg” digital TV broadcasts viewed on mobile phones in Japan.
As part of its HCL-S strategy (‘High quality, Compact design, Low power consumption, System solutions’), Sanyo Epson focused on producing the thinner and lighter components demanded in the mobile devices market to develop an ultra-thin 2.2-inch amorphous TFT LCD, which was designed specifically for use in mobile phones, where the trend toward slimmer devices is especially pronounced.
In addition, the new display is fully compliant with the European Union’s RoHS (restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment) Directive. Sanyo Epson intends to commercialize the new display for use in mobile phones and other new applications. Continue >>
