15 Apr 2012 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sharp’s IGZO based LCD panels have been mentioned <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1322134609><b>a few times in the past</b></a> and Sharp has now started production of LCD panels using the IGZO method. One of the first panels is a 10-inch panel with 2560x1600 pixels.<br /><br /><h3>Sharp begins IGZO production</h3>At Sharp’s Kameyama no. 2 display factory, IGZO production has begun. IGZO is short for indium gallium zinc oxide and is used for faster and smaller thin-film transistors that can power a display panel.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src=pictures/sharpplant.jpg><br><i>Sharp’s Kameyama display factory</i></p><br />With IGZO Sharp can dramatically increase resolution and reduce power consumption on LCD panels, and at the same time lower costs.<br /><br />The first three panels made with IGZO are:<br /><li>A 7” tablet panel with 1280x800 pixels (217 ppi)<br /><li>A 10” notebook panel with 2560x1600 pixels (300 ppi)<br /><li>A 32” monitor panel with 3840x2160 pixels (140 ppi)<br /><br />Sharp can also make larger high-resolution TV panels using IGZO. Last year, <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1322134609><b>rumors surfaced</b></a> that Apple was planning to use Sharp’s IGZO panels in their iPhones, iPads as well as the coming Apple HDTV.
