Sharp Intros Thinner, Clearer, More Efficient Displays
Sharp today announced a new display design that promises to bring dramatic improvements to mobile device screens. The company has developed a new indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) semiconductor technology with high crystallinity. This will allow Sharp to create touch displays that have higher resolutions, lower power consumption, narrower bezels, and better performance. Sharp says the cost of altering its production lines to make use of the new material will be minimal, and it expects to update its manufacturing later this year. The new material will be used in LCD displays for mobile devices such as smartphones.
