Sharp Corp. has revealed the production of IGZO LCD panels that claim top of the line pixel densities. Production will begin in June at the company's Kameyama Plant No. 2. Sharp believes that these new offerings will enhance its current line-up of IGZO LCD panels for notebook PCs, which already has started production of 13.3in IGZO panels. The new LCD panels will come in three size varieties: 11.6 inches, 14 inches, and 15.6 inches.

IGZO technology enables smaller thin-film transistors and increased light transmittance. As a result, fine text can be rendered crisply and clearly, and images can be displayed with impressive realism. For example, Sharp's 14in panel boasts a pixel density of 262ppi, which represents 1.67 times the number of pixels of full high definition. Increased light transmittance also means lower rates of energy consumption, with IGZO technology reducing the amount of power required to drive liquid crystals during the display of still images. These factors lead to greater energy efficiency and longer battery life on notebook PCs. IGZO technology is also compatible with stylus-input touchscreen functionality.

Sharp will work to further expand the range of applications using its IGZO LCD panels in products such as smartphones, tablet PCs, notebook PCs, and 4K displays that make the most of the super high resolution and energy efficiency of these panels.
