Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology Expands Family of LED LCD Panels for Notebooks


Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology (TMD) announced development of new 10.4-inch(1024x768/XGA) and 10.6-inch(1280x768/WXGA) thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD panels for notebooks. The displays incorporate a LED (light emitting diode) backlighting system to provide low-profile, lightweight, and low-power consumption features. Compared with a conventional cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlighting system, the LED backlighting has distinct advantages such as reduced thickness, reduced weight, increased brightness, and decreased power consumption. In addition, it is Mercury-Free and RoHS- Compatible. Moreover, an LED backlighting system contributes to increased durability against impacts and vibration. Including the two newly developed panels, TMD's lineup of LED-backlit TFT LCD panels now offers screen sizes from 8.9-inch to 13.3-inch and pixel resolutions of XGA, WXGA, and WXGA+. In these notebook PC panels, in addition to the adoption of an LED-backlight system, TMD has also adopted thinner glass substrates of 0.3 mm or less, reduced the number of component parts to the minimum requirement. TMD foresees strong growth in this area, and these types of LED-backlit panels will exceed 50 percent of TMD's production in late 2007.Source: Toshiba Matsushita
