LCD industry marching onward to next generation

Equipment maker AKT recently announced a new eighth-generation (8G) TFT LCD vector plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) system, which is just another indication that the LCD industry is steadily pushing ahead to next-generation TFT LCD panel production.

The new AKT-50K PECVD system, to be delivered in early 2006, is for flat panel display manufacturing processing glass substrates sized at 2,160×2,400 mm and can process up to six 52" TV panels per substrate, doubling the capacity of previous 7G systems for producing 52" TV panels, according to the company.
