Sharp TV Plant Will Now Make Mobile Device Screens, as Well

Posted by at 10:21 am on April 21, 2011

 

Sharp said Thursday that it was shifting some of the production at its second TV plant in Kameyama to smartphone and tablet displays. Both medium and small displays would be made side-by-side with TVs later this year. The development was coming along with a world-first use of new “oxide semiconductor material” for thin film transistor (TFT) LCDs that would shrink the transistors to allow much more light from a given pixel, leading to either a brighter mobile device display or lower power use for the same brightness.

The company wouldn’t say what was happening with its empty first plant at Kameyama, which it cleared out after selling off TV building equipment.

Reasons weren’t given for the switch for mobile.
