Sharp unveils new high-resolution IGZO LCDs

Sharp announced last Friday in Japan a new series of High-resolution LCDs with the IGZO or Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide LCD. These new IGZO are set to offer mode details and being 90% less power greedy than none IGZO LCDs, while offering impressive resolutions with in Sharp’s example a 3840×2160 140ppi 32” LCD, a 2560×1600 300ppi 10” and a 800×1280 217ppi 7”

In March 2012 at Kameyama Plant No. 2, Sharp began producing the world’s first high-performance LCD panels incorporating IGZO oxide semiconductors. Sharp is expanding production scale through April to meet market demand.

Kameyama Plant No. 2 first started operations in August 2006, manufacturing highly advanced LCD panels for TVs. Production systems have subsequently been reorganized to focus on producing small- and medium-sized LCD panels for the world’s rapidly growing smartphone and tablet terminal markets.

Employing advanced IGZO oxide semiconductors enables Sharp to produce LCDs with smaller thin-film transistors and increased pixel transparency, thus allowing for lower energy consumption. In addition, proprietary UV2A*3 photo-alignment technology employed in Sharp’s AQUOS LCD TVs enables these displays to achieve high image quality.

Sharp will encourage the application of its new high-resolution LCD panels to high-definition notebook PCs and LCD monitors-which are both expected to grow in demand-as well as to mobile devices. Sharp will also contribute to creating markets for attractive new products.
