Sharp Beginning Production on Three New IGZO Displays

Sharp has begun production of high-pixel density IGZO LCD panels for notebook computers that will offer some of the industry’s highest pixel densities and will be available in 11.6-, 14- and 15.6-inch models with compatibility for "stylus input" touchscreens.

The IGZO panel technology utilizes smaller, thin-film transistors and increased light transmittance which offers two important benefits. First of all, the higher pixel density allows the display of high quality images and crisply rendered fine text. Second, the technology allows greater energy efficiency by reducing the amount of power required to drive liquid crystals during the display of still images.
