LG.Philips LCD has developed the industry’s first TFT-LCD panel for next-generation mobile phones
The 2-inch LCD panel has a faster response time than existing mobile phone displays, allowing it to play back sharp high-quality video from next-generation digital broadcasts and mobile communication technology, including DVB-H and WiBro. The display’s 16ms response time is 36% faster than the fastest TFT-LCD panels currently used for mobile phones. Most TFT-LCD panels used in phones today have response times of 25ms, which reduce the picture quality for high-definition video.
To create high-speed displays that meet the low power consumption requirements of mobile phones, LG.Philips LCD developed different technology than is used in its large-area panels. This new product boasts a response time similar to LCD panels for notebook computers and is also easy to mass produce.
“This product breaks the 20ms response time barrier, which was thought to be the limit for mobile phone TFT-LCD panels. As the first such TFT-LCD product with a response time in the teens, we will be able to fill demand in the mobile display market for displays that can display high-resolution video and consume little power. We plan to start mass producing these panels this year,” said Hyun He Ha, LG.Philips LCD’s Vice President.
