AU Optronics has applied its narrow border technology to maximize
the display area of a new 4.46-inch full-HD touch panel display,
designed for mobiles.
AUO's proprietary super narrow border technology and low
temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) method are applied to reduce the
border width to just 1mm when touch panel is placed on the module
surface, allowing the screen to appear in its largest at the cell
phone's display area. In addition, AMOLED, IGZO (indium gallium
zinc oxide) and AHVA (Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle) technologies
are being developed by AUO to drive the trends for lighter and
AUO has developed AHVA panels ranging from 3 inches to 15.6 inches
and has included them to a full array of mobile device
applications, such as digital cameras, smartphones, e-readers, car
displays, tablets and Ultrabooks. AUO's 4.97-inch Full HD AHVA
Mobile Display, which has entered mass production, is made with
LTPS process and has full HD resolution of 1920x1080 (443ppi).
With the resolution of current OLED panels ranging from 200 to
300ppi, AUO also revealed a 4.65-inch AMOLED panel technology,
which employs the company's proprietary pixel design with
resolution as high as 317ppi.
AUO also introduced its ultra-slim high resolution 10-inch
panel technology with application to tablets. The IGZO method is
adopted to achieve a high resolution of 2560x1600. With
transmittance increased by 12% and thickness of the backlight unit
reduced by 60% (as compared to conventional models), the panel is
only 1.5mm thick and saves more power.
