Honeywell has granted a license authorizing AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) to use a patented Honeywell technology relating to specific LCD products.

The patented technology increases the brightness of images and reduces the appearance of certain interference effects on LCDs. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

According to Loria Yeadon, CEO of Honeywell Intellectual Properties, the licensed technology is a key solution for the improved LCDs that consumers expect in performance end products such as cameras, notebook computers and PDAs. "We welcome AUO to our licensing program and are pleased that they and their customers and users will benefit from Honeywell's patent-backed technology," Yeadon said.

The AUO agreement provides a license to use technology protected by U.S. Patent Number 5,280,371.

Ltd, Sanyo Epson Imaging Devices Corp., Chunghwa Picture Tubes, Ltd, LG.Philips LCD, NEC LCD Technologies Ltd, Chi Mei Optoelectronics Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd under the same patent in prior years.
