December 29: according to Taiwan media news reports DigiTimes, Apple has been working on assessing all iOS devices (not including the Apple TV) equipped with IGZO display feasibility, if all goes well, we will be in 2013, iPad, iPad mini, see IGZO iPhone screen.
About IGZO screen:
IGZO (Indium Gallium zinc oxide) as abbreviation of Indium Gallium zinc oxide, amorphous IGZO material is used in the new generation of thin-film transistor technology channel layer materials. IGZO materials from Japan Tokyo fine yexiuxiong University of technology was first put forward in the TFT industry applications, at present the materials and technical patents mainly by Japan manufacturers have, IGZO-TFT technology first in Japan sharp volume production.
IGZO technical analysis
IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) as abbreviation of Indium Gallium zinc oxide, it is a thin-film transistor technology, is in the TFT-LCD above the active layer, a layer of metal oxides. And liquid crystal molecular alignment this way doesn’t matter (such as IPS, PVA is not a concept), but rather a TFT is driven by improved technology, sharp is using it to improve their competitiveness in the small and medium size LCD Panel. In other words, even IPS LCD Panel can use IGZO TFT technology, between the two are not contradictory. Disney Note 4 flip case
TFT (Thin Film Transistor) is a thin-film field-effect transistors, TFT LCD screen means that each liquid crystal pixel on the LCD Panel is integrated in the thin-film transistor-driven, which is used in mobile phones often heard on “TFT screen.” Common main TFT-driven classification of a-Si TFT (amorphous silicon), LTPS TFT (low temperature poly silicon), IGZO TFT also fall into this category. So end, sharp this by proposed of IGZO Panel, still is a TFT LCD screen, actually IGZO TFT technology also can using in OLED Panel Shang using IGZO technology can makes display power close OLED, but cost more low, thickness also only than OLED only high out 25%, and resolution can reached full HD (full HD) and Super HD (Ultra Definition, resolution 4k*2k) level degree.
