LG.Philips LCD Develops a-Si TFT-LCD Mobile Phone Panel with World’s Thinnest Border at Only One Millimeter

LG.Philips LCD [NYSE: LPL, KRX: 034220], a leading innovator of thin-film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) technology, announced today that it has developed a 2.4-inch a-Si TFT-LCD panel with the world’s thinnest border for use in mobile phones.

The borders on the left and right sides of this 2.4-inch qVGA-resolution (240×320) LCD panel measure just 1 mm each. This is about 50 percent thinner than most a-Si TFT-LCD panels currently produced, which generally have borders measuring closer to 2 mm.

The display is based on LG.Philips LCD’s Narrow Bezel Technology, combining Gate in Panel technology (GIP), which integrates the driver IC onto the LCD panel, and new process and material technologies designed to ensure that narrow-border panels are equal in quality and reliability to their wider counterparts.

Along with module thickness, border width is the most important factor in creating a slimmer, compact TFT-LCD panel in the 2 and 3-inch market. By narrowing the borders on either size of the panel, LG.Philips LCD was able to increase display area by a full 10 percent, allowing electronics makers to incorporate panels with much larger viewable areas into existing product frames.

LG.Philips LCD plans to start mass production of these new panels next year. The company will also apply the same technology to other models to expand its lineup of slim border products.

Hyun He Ha, Executive Vice President and Head of the Small & Medium Displays Business Unit at LG.Philips LCD said, “Competition in the market for mobile phone displays has shifted from a race for higher picture quality to a race for slimmer panels. Now our focus is on creating slimmer borders. Our latest breakthrough reaffirms that LG.Philips LCD leads the industry in technology for small and medium displays as well as large screen panels. We will continue to develop products that meet the demands of our customers and the market to generate value for our customers.”

LG.Philips LCD will showcase this 1 mm border TFT-LCD panel for mobile phones to global buyers at FPD International 2007, being held at Yokohama, Japan, from October 24 to 26, 2007.
