Several display makers in mainland are retooling their manufacturing capabilities with the technology to produce CSTN-LCD modules.

Qingdao Luculent Microelectronic Co. Ltd will invest $15 million to $18 million in a production line that will manufacture CSTN-LCD modules by mid-year, announced Liang Honggang, technology and quality department manager.

Sun Yanshui, marketing manager of Hebei Jiya Electronics Co. Ltd, said they also plan to start CSTN-LCD and TFT-LCD module assembly this year.

With help from foreign investors, the company is establishing an assembly line that will manufacture less than 5-inch CSTN-LCD modules suited to mobile-phone application. Jiya expects its initial production to start this semester.

Anshan Yes Optoelectronics Display Co. Ltd will also join the CSTN-LCD module line this year, says Cui Kun, commerce assistant. The company already makes TN-, STN- and FSTN-LCD modules. The company will release CSTN-LCD modules suitable for mobile-phone, MP3, PDA, cordless-phone, OA and car-system applications.

Shanghai Guangdian Liquid Crystal Display Co. Ltd has recently installed equipment for STN- and CSTN-LCD module production. The company aims to increase its monthly output of LCMs to two million units from 1.2 million units.

A key driver in the capacity expansion is the surging demand from the mobile-phone sector, said Chai Guowen of the business department. The company has invested $600,000 to develop four CSTN-LCD modules.

So far, there are fewer than 10 makers in mainland China that have technological capability to produce CSTN-LCD modules, claimed Liang of Luculent. Their combined production output is far less than the demand from mobile-phone sector.

For the past two years, an increasing number of mobile-phone makers in mainland China have adopted color LCD panels as standard configurations in their phone designs. The trend has created a strong demand for CSTN-LCD modules.
