List of flat panel display manufacturers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Flat panel displays are thin panels of glass or plastic used for electronically displaying text, images, or video. LCD (liquid-crystal displays), OLED (organic light emitting diode) and MicroLED displays are largely the same, except that an LCD uses a liquid crystal that reacts to an electric current blocking light or allowing it to pass through the panel, where as OLED/microLED displays consists of electroluminescent organic materials (that include carbon, thus the name organic)/inorganic that generate light when a current is passed through the material. LCD, OLED/MicroLED displays are driven using TFT, LTPS, IGZO, LTPO, and A-SI transistor technologies as their backplane using ITO to supply current to the transistors and in turn to the liquid crystal or electroluminesent material. Segment and passive OLED and LCD displays do not use a backplane but use Indium tin oxide(ITO), a transparent conductive material, to pass current to the electroluminescent material or liquid crystal. In LCD displays, there is an even layer of liquid crystal throughout the panel where as an OLED display has the electroluminescent material only where it is meant to light up.

List of LCD panel manufacturers[edit]

Liquid-crystal display (or LCD) is a thin, flat panel used for electronically displaying information such as text, images, and moving pictures. They are usually made of glass but they can also be made out of plastic using OLCD. Some manufacturers make transparent LCD panels and special sequential color segment LCDs that have higher than usual refresh rates and an RGB backlight. The backlight is synchronized with the display so that the colors will show up as needed. The list of LCD manufacturers:

List of OLED panel manufacturers[edit]

Organic light emitting diode (or OLED displays) is a thin, flat panel made of glass or plastic used for electronically displaying information such as text, images, and moving pictures. OLED panels can also take the shape of a light panel, where red, green and blue light emitting materials are stacked to create a white light panel. OLED displays can also be made transparent and these transparent panels are available on the market. LCD and OLED displays are available in different shapes, the most promintent of which is a circular display, which is used in smartwatches. The list of OLED display manufacturers:

Below are some manufacturers that make OLED light panels:

List of MicroLED panel manufacturers[edit]

MicroLED displays is an emerging flat-panel display technology consisting of arrays of microscopic LEDs forming the individual pixel elements. The list of MicroLED display manufacturers:

There are current no MicroLED displays in mass production. Sony produces and sells commerical MicroLED displays called CLEDIS (Crystal-LED Integrated Displays, also called Canvas-LED) in small qauntities.[2]

Below are some manufacturers that make MicroLED light panels:

  • TaiwanLuumii

List of LCD panel fabrication plants[edit]

This list lists current LCD fabrication facilities, former facilities are below this first table. LCDs are made in a glass substrate. For OLED, the substrate can also be plastic. The size of the substrates are specified in generations, with each generation using a larger substrate. For example, a 4th generation substrate is larger in size than a 3rd generation substrate. A larger substrate allows for more panels to be cut from a single substrate, or for larger panels to be made, akin to increasing wafer sizes in the semiconductor industry. Panel Inputs per month is how many substrates can a plant process per month.
