Chi Mei Electronics Corp. will commence mass production of 5G TFT-LCD panels in Q4 of this year, with a monthly output of 30,000 glass substrates. Moreover, the company is also scheduled to increase output for 4G TFT-LCD panels this quarter.

Chi Mei anticipates its 30-inch TFT-LCD panels designed for TV receivers to account for 5 percent of its total production, taking up 10 to 15 percent total sales value.

According to Jau-Yang Ho, president, the company was able to ship a total of 1.75 million units of TFT-LCD panels during Q1 of this year, up by 20.3 percent from Q4 of 2002. However, due to the price drop in TFT-LCD panels, the net loss last quarter reached NT$629 million ($18.05 million at $1:NT$34.78).

In addition, the company recently developed full-color 20-inch OLED displays using amorphous silicon technology.
