Research analyst Charles Annis from firm DisplaySearch in Japan said today, SHARP IGZO hd screen could still be the apple iPad 3 screen. Last month, sources said SHARP IGZO not through the apple audit for can not reach the volume production standard, passed in the iPad 3 screen supplier selection. Therefore, iPad 3 display panel production task has been completely to South Korea samsung and LG.
It is expected that apple next generation tablet computer iPad 3 will use the 9.7 inch hd LCD screen, the resolution will be as high as 2048 x1536, and the current iPad 2 is 1024 x768 screen resolution.
Now the problem is: iPad 3 and SHARP IGZO technology had develop to what degree? Annis says, SHARP is ready to IGZO screen volume production work, this is not problem. As for apple will use it or not, only apple knows.
He said the current market yet not has IGZO screen, if used in the apple iPad 3, and launch in this April, it will become the world's first product using IGZO screen. Therefore, the possibility is very large. He thinks, iPad will be listed in April this year on the left.
So what is the advantage IGZO technology? He says, the main advantage lies in the IGZO have higher electronic transfer rate, means more current through the thin film transistor. This allows manufacturers use more small thin film transistor, and have more light. The screen brightness higher, and can reduce the number of LED screen, this means that cost reduction. In addition, IGZO technology more energy efficient, can improve battery life time.
Despite SHARP is in the lead in IGZO technology, but samsung and LG are also developing IGZO panel. If apple decided to use IGZO screen, sharp would be the exclusive provider? He says, based on historical experience, apple in the same product used in different display panel technology, so this time it is difficult to judge.
In fact, IGZO and traditional amorphous silicon display panel have a lot in common. For example, all use IPS, use the same LCD technology, so have a wider perspective, and more excellent color from the shaft.
Add: Instruction of LGZO screen
IGZO is the abbreviation of indium gallium zinc oxide (indium gallium zinc oxide), is a kind of thin film transistor technology. Its power close to OLED, but cheaper, thickness also only 25% higher than OLED only. IGZO screen has three main advantages: first, flat and mobile phone can ve more frivolous; Second, the battery life can become longer; Third, the user experience can be increased greatly.
