Sharp has this week unveiled LCD and OLED display panels based on the new indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) technology. Using advanced IGZO oxide semiconductors allows Sharp to create LCDs with smaller thin-film transistors, together with increased pixel transparency. The technology can also be applied to OLED screens, which can be paper-thin.
As well as providing lower energy consumption displays combined with proprietary UV2A*3 photo-alignment technology employed in Sharp’s AQUOS LCD TVs, creates displays with higher image qualities.
The first prototypes of the new IGZO LCD displays are a 4.9-inch 720 x 1280 screen, and a 6.1 inch screen sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1600 have been unveiled by Sharp
Together with other creations for future use including the flexible 3.4-inch 540 x 960 screen pictured above, and OLED panels, one 13.5-inch 3840 x 2160 QFHD panel based on White OLEDs with RGB colour filters.Filed Under: Displays News, Technology News
