JDI Initiates Gen 6 LCD Panel Mass Production at Hakusan Plant

Japan Display Inc. (JDI) announced the commencement of mass production at its newly-constructed low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) LCD line in its Hakusan Plant, located in Hakusan City, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. JDI had been preparing for mass production since Dec. 1, and commenced mass production on Dec. 23.

The line, with leading-edge production equipment, uses 6th generation (Gen 6) glass substrates (1500mm x 1850mm) and will produce high-performance and high-quality displays for high-end mobile device models.

Currently, the demand for JDI's LTPS LCDs, especially for smartphones, is greatly increasing due to the company's stable supply of high added-value products. To respond to this growing demand, JDI has decided to start mass production at the Hakusan Plant, which has a capacity of 25,000 sheets per month, that will increase JDI's panel production capacity by approximately 20%.

The new line fabricates panels on Gen 6 glass substrates, the largest substrate size used in the market for LTPS panel production, with the most advanced production equipment, thus making it a highly-efficient production site. Displays with super-high resolution, wide viewing angle, low power consumption and in-cell touch function will be produced there to meet customers' demand.

With the start of mass production, JDI will strive to further respond to its customers' demands and contribute to the further development of the mobile device market.
