While initial implementations of LEP backlights will probably incorporate backlight and liquid crystal display
in separate modules, manufacturers could ultimately deposit the LEP panel directly on the LCD glass plate for a completely integrated unit with sizeable savings in weight and better illumination than conventional backlights.
The production line unwinds a roll of coated plastic film and performs the necessary process steps to effectively convert the roll of film to a finished liquid crystal display
Asahi Glass is the world's second-largest supplier of glass substrates for thin-film transistor liquid crystal displays
and a dominant supplier of plasma display panels, it noted.
Now that prices for flat-panel LCD (liquid crystal displays
) are shrinking, those big, clunky beige CRT (cathode ray tube) monitors that take up a huge amount of real estate on your desk are on the way out.
E Ink's prototypes are roughly 90 percent thinner and lighter than typical glass-based, liquid crystal displays
The division, with a workforce of around 200, chalked up some 27 billion yen in sales from its electronics products, such as drive modules for liquid crystal displays
, in fiscal 2000 through March 31.
As reported in the May 3 issue of the journal Nature, IBM has demonstrated a new non-contact method that uses beams of ions - electrically charged atoms - to align the liquid crystal molecules inside the flat-panel liquid crystal displays
used in portable and desktop computers and other electronic devices.
The new, patented method uses beams of ions to align the liquid crystal molecules inside flat-panel liquid crystal displays
. The traditional method involves rubbing a polymer substrate with a velvet cloth.
said Tuesday it will build a new plant in Kochi Prefecture, western Japan, to increase production of thin film-transistor liquid crystal displays
(TFT LCDs) to meet growing world demand.
Hitachi also saw the price of computer displays and liquid crystal displays
fall, and saw dropping demand for its electric power plants in domestic markets.
Compared with ink on paper, cathode-ray tubes and liquid crystal displays
are bulky and heavy and they consume considerable amounts of power.
Available in versions providing a light output of up to 1,900 mcd, a family of SMT LEDs from JKL Components is intended for use in BLUs (backlight units) for liquid crystal displays
. Providing a 120[degrees] viewing angle, the side-mounted white LEDs include the ZSM-S2808-W, a 2.8 mm x 1.2 mm X 0.8 mm emitter with a luminous intensity (at 20 mA) of 1,400 mcd max, and the ZSM-S3806-W 3.8 mm x 1.2 mm x 0.6 mm device with an intensity of 1,400 mcd max.
