At the Society for Information Display International
Symposium, Sharp will highlight its broad line of Liquid Crystal
Display panels based on the newest innovations in LCD technology.
company will feature a 4.3-inch amorphous silicon liquid crystal
display in a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel format capable of
displaying 16 million colors. It was developed for next-generation
mobile devices that require wider color gamut and greater power
efficiency in a landscape format.
In its booth, 2019, Sharp will also exhibit several large-format
LCD TVs, including its new 65-inch LCD TV, all developed with Sharp's
Advanced Super View technology for high contrast and fast response
time. Sharp's LCD TVs are manufactured at its sixth
generation Kameyama fabrication plant in Mie Prefecture, Japan, where
eight 32-inch displays can be cut from a single motherglass.
Sharp will exhibit a
comprehensive lineup of small, medium and large display modules for
mobile/handheld products, enterprise, automotive, industrial/medical,
and consumer markets. Sharp's TFT-LCD displays feature proprietary
display technologies, including:
-- Advanced Super View LCDs feature 170 degree (H) x 170 degree
(V) viewing angle, response rates of 12 milliseconds or less,
and a 800:1 contrast ratio. Sharp's Liquid Crystal Display TVs
are manufactured using this technology for high contrast and
fast response rates with no smearing of fast-moving images.
-- Super Mobile LCDs combine Sharp's proprietary Advanced Super
View LCD and Advanced-TFT LCD technologies, and allow display
modules to exhibit video and photographic-quality text and
still images. A remarkable 240 x 240 Mobile ASV will be on
display, as well as a 1.8-inch display for cell phones.
-- Advanced-TFT (AD-TFT) Technology combines the advantages of a
reflective display with a conventional transmissive display,
ideal for PDAs, gaming, medical, and other handheld and mobile
applications used in a wide range of ambient lighting
conditions. Displays that will be on exhibit for handheld
applications include the 3.0-inch, 3.5-inch and 3.7-inch
-- CG-Silicon is a next-generation process technology developed
jointly by Sharp and Semiconductor Energy Laboratory Co., Ltd.
CG-Silicon makes possible a new generation
of smaller, thinner, more versatile, more powerful and
energy-efficient mobile devices. Among the displays on exhibit
will be a 2.6-inch VGA display, and 2.2-inch and 2.4-inch QVGA
Also on hand will be Sharp's impressive lineup of automotive
displays based on Advanced-TFT and CG-Silicon technology, in sizes
ranging from 3.3- to 8.0-inch configurations for in-vehicle dashboard
and rear-seat entertainment systems. There will also be a
demonstration of its "cluster" solutions that are designed for outyear
Finally, Sharp will demonstrate its system solution for personal
media player applications that features Sharp's MCUs, Flash memory,
LEDs and other components.
