Sanyo Epson Imaging Devices Corp. has announced the development of a 2.2-inch, 1.1mm thick amorphous silicon TFT LCD that's suitable for use in mobile phones and other portable devices.

Consumers are increasingly demanding that small and medium-sized LCDs for mobile devices should have high resolution and be slim and energy efficient. To meet these demands, Sanyo Epson has developed products and technologies based on the concept of supplying clear, user-friendly displays that can be used anytime, anywhere.

The company succeeded in developing this 1.1mm-thick amorphous TFT LCD by using ultrathin components, including the backlight, polarizing plate and glass substrate. By incorporating its proprietary design technology to boost transmissivity, the company was able to achieve more than 350cd/m? surface brightness, as well as QVGA (320 x 240 pixel) high definition. These features make the new LCD suitable for displaying video and receiving "One Seg," a new service in Japan enabling digital TV broadcasts to be viewed on mobile phones.

Sanyo Epson intends to commercialize this fully RoHS-compliant display for use in mobile phones and other new applications.
