Sharp said it has begun production of LCD panels that incorporates indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) semiconductors, at its plant in Kameyama, Japan.

According to Sharp, the use of advanced IGZO oxide semiconductors enables the company to produce LCDs with smaller thin-film transistors and increased pixel transparency, allowing for lower energy consumption.

The high-resolution LCD panels are ideal for high-definition notebook PCs and LCD monitors, smartphones, and tablets.

Sharp has reorganised its Kameyama plant, which was earlier used to produce LCD panels for TVs, to focus on producing small- and medium-sized LCD panels for the rapidly growing smartphone and tablet terminal markets, the company said.

Sharp is expanding production scale through April to meet market demand.
