Using 8th-generation glass substrates, Sharp will be the first company in the world(1) to achieve commercial production of high-definition LCD panels for smartphones-something that was previously considered difficult to achieve. The highly efficient production levels achievable with 8th-generation glass substrates will be made possible by an optimized production process as well as by IGZO technology's ability to enable smaller thin-film transistors and increased light transmittance.
Sharp will work to meet vigorously growing demand for LCDs in the smartphone market by taking advantage of the energy efficiency, super-high resolution, and high-performance touchscreen functionality of its IGZO LCD panels. Furthermore, Sharp will continue to expand the range of applications of IGZO in products such as tablet PCs, notebook PCs, and 4K displays.
